Eminem & Kendrick Lamar Throw A Curveball With “Love Game”: Hear The Surprising Track

f42df23f46bb6064fa5e12368dba8e9e Eminem & Kendrick Lamar Throw A Curveball With “Love Game”: Hear The Surprising Track

Well, this is completely unexpected! Eminem‘s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar is here, and “Love Game” couldn’t be further from the gritty, fast-paced street chronicle we were expecting. While the Marshall Mathers LP 2 track packs in the lyrical acrobatics we’d expect from these two mammoth MCs, the vibe is completely playful and loose. And — brace yourselves — K-Dot legit sings the hook, in the you-can-hear-him-grinning style of Andre 3000.

The song heavily samples Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders‘ 1965 song “The Game Of Love,” resulting in an airy, jaunty arrangement that lets the two rappers skip and sprint all over the beat, or leave it altogether. The intricate rhyme schemes and unpredictable pacing are equal parts thrilling and disorienting. Add in the various shades of Shady we get (Em completely flies off the handle for his final verse) plus K-Dot channeling his own Shady-style voices, and, like “Rap God” before it, this track will take a few listens to fully reveal itself.

Hear it below.
