The first track to have surfaced from Em's newly-anounced 'Shady XV' album finds the rapper reflecting on the highs and lows of his career.
Just a few hours after announcing "Shady XV", Eminem released the first offering off the new album. Titled "Guts Over Fear", it finds the rapper reuniting with Sia Furler whom he worked with for "Beautiful Pain" from last year's "MMLP2".
The new duet was first teased in June, when a snippet of the song appeared in a trailer for Denzel Washington's upcoming movie "The Equalizer". In the track, Eminem is featured reflecting on the highs and lows of his career.
"And I'm frozen cause there's no more emotion for me to pull from/ Just a bunch of playful songs that I may perform/ So to the break of dawn here I go recycling the same old song/ But I'd rather make 'Not Afraid 2' than another make mothaf**kin' 'We Made You'," he raps.
"Shady XV" was announced in the latest "The Equalizer" trailer that hit the web on Sunday, August 24. The LP, which coincides with the 15th anniversary of Em's 1999 major label debut set "The Slim Shady LP", is due out on Black Friday.
