It's been about 8 years since the hip hop world heard a Bus/Shady callabo. And it seems that his tenth studio LP will be enough reason to bring this single to light. E.L.E. 2 (Extinction Level Event 2) will follow the trend of emcees continuing a previous album with a sequel. In this case Mr.Rhymes is following up his 98 LP, E.L.E.: The Final World Front. The Scoop DeVille produced track samples House of Pain's 92 smash single, Jump Around. In an interview with XXL Bus said that E.L.E. 2 will feature a track with Em that is like a "battle". Unless he has another single with Slim Shady, we can assume this is that track. Both emcees split the rap duties as each vet gets about 3 minutes of the 6 minute track. I would recommend listening to the track with rapgenius up in another window. Both emcees bombard the track with the unique styles that have kept them in the game this long. The lyrical onslaught requires a few listens to appreciate the word play and construction. Bus def channels his mid-late 90s flow and of course Em can ride any track like the best of them. The release date was set for the 4th of July. Since I haven't heard otherwise, we shall know on Friday if Bus stayed the course.
Peep track below. Peep trailer for E.L.E. 2 as well!
