Eminem is set to release “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” in less than a month and he is continuing his viral campaign by releasing his new “Survival” music video today.
The “Survival” track serves as one of the singles for the new Call Of Duty: Ghosts video game soundtrack.
Eminem releases the music video for “Survival.” The song serves as a promotional single for the Call of Duty: Ghosts video game soundtrack. It’s produced by DJ Khalil and finds the Detroit MC ripping through the record like he’s out to prove something. “Let me remind you of what got me this far/Picture me quitting, now draw a circle around it/And put a line through it you slut/The survival of what,” he viciously raps. The visuals feature gameplay of Call of Duty in the background and Eminem sporting an all-black outfit to fit the mood of the song. At the end of the video Eminem approaches his childhood home in Detroit and walks away into the darkness. This last scene pulls its influence from the cover art of Em’s upcoming album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which is due out November 5. (Complex)
EM recently expressed how he felt about being a part of the franchise.
“The energy and intensity of ‘Survival’ really matches Call of Duty: Ghosts. I’m excited to continue to be a part of the franchise.” said Eminem, whose “Survival” track was featured in the game’s multiplayer reveal trailer. Later this month, a music video trailer featuring the song and Ghosts’ gameplay will debut. “Call of Duty is the ultimate adrenaline rush. It’s the intensity and heart-pounding excitement you feel as the action unfolds. And Eminem embodies this same spirit and captures this in his music,” said Activision CMO Tim Ellis. (Game Zone)
