Eminem’s “Don’t Front”: Hear The Old School ‘MMLP2′ Bonus Track

6992b27dd4556cef93703ec42912944c Eminem’s “Don’t Front”: Hear The Old School ‘MMLP2′ Bonus Track

Eminem channeled hip-hop’s late-80s rock sample era for a handful of tracks on his very solid new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, but on bonus cut “Don’t Front,” he channels the early ’90s boom-bap of NYC — namely, by sampling it directly. The beat is lifted from Black Moon‘s “I Got Cha Opin,” with Buckshot‘s hook even left intact.

No surprise, Em piles on rhymes-within-rhymes over the gritty, scratch-laden beat, letting the track serve as yet another reminder that he’s at the top of the rap game: “So when names come up in that conversation of who’s the dopest, better throw mine in it / And don’t mind me, while I remind you of the flow you won’t find anywhere / When it fires and I unload my pen explodes, til there’s no rhymes in it / Reload in no time, letting zones fly, every 60 seconds that go by so you know I meant it.”

Once again it shows Slim Shady has found an interesting way of moving his career forward by looking backwards. Unfortunately, this song isn’t one of the five extra tracks on the MMLP2 deluxe edition — it’s only available as part of a Call Of Duty: Ghosts bundle (“Survival” was also released in conjunction with that game). Hear the old school track below.
