Eminem’s new album comes out this week, and for all those who are considering to cop a copy of Recovery, make sure to hit up iTunes afterwards. Those wise enough to purchase through the store Steve Jobs built will be treated to two bonus cuts, and both of them are certified bangers.
The first is ‘Session One’ Eminem’s highly anticipated collaboration with Slaughterhouse. Over a neck-snap inducing beat from Just Blaze, Em, Royce Da 5’9, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, and Joe Budden go in like men who don’t have deals and haven’t sold one record. Yeah, they sound that hungry, and Just Blaze? Wow. The beat is all hard rock guitar licks and blasts of screaming organ chords with gritty snares. Just Blaze may have never been gone, but for some reason, ‘Session One’ sounds like he’s back like he’s never been before.
Speaking of re-introductions by great producers, the second bonus cut, ‘Ridaz’ is a classic Eminem and Dr. Dre collaboration. On this cut, Em goes more of a Slim Shady type flow, with complex rhyme patterns over a sinister soundbed, and the combination makes for a track so good we’re wondering why they left it off the original release. Ditto for ‘Session One’…Listen to them both and let us know what you think.
