Stat Quo Thinks Eminem's "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" Will Have A Beastie Boys Feel

Exclusive: Based off the snippet of Eminem's "Berzerk" single, former Shady/Aftermath recording artist Stat Quo says he thinks the Detroit rapper's new LP will have a Beastie Boys vibe.

Given the snippet of Eminem’s song “Berzerk” that has been leaked, former Shady/Aftermath Entertainment act Stat Quo says he has an idea of the vibe of the Detroit rapper’s forthcoming The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which is slated for a November 5 release.

“Based on that song, they basically went towards the whole Beastie Boys feel with the beat,” Stat Quo says during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. “A lot of the rap right now is not in direction, where it’s very hard and shit with guitars. I think Em probably went that way because his typical style is that if everybody’s going right, he’s gonna go left. I definitely feel like it’s going to follow that Beastie Boys motif. I think it’s going to feel like a Beastie Boys record.”

Stat Quo says that regardless of what the music sounds like, the fact that Eminem is working on new material with Dr. Dre and former Beastie Boys producer Rick Rubin that will actually be released is noteworthy.

“I think that it’s significant that it’s even coming out,” Stat Quo says of forthcoming The Marshall Mathers LP 2. “Dr. Dre is so hard to please and I’m sure Rick Rubin is not easy, either, so that’s a big deal. But you’re talking about one of the greatest rappers ever, so I’m sure it’s gotta be crazy.”

Working on completing his own ATLA project, an acronym for “All This Life Allows,” Stat Quo says that he’s interested to hear the follow-up to Eminem’s second major label album given the magnitude of its predecessor. Released in 2000, The Marshall Mathers LP included the singles “The Real Slim Shady,” “The Way I Am” and “Stan.”

“Even though I’ve put out four Underground Atlanta [mixtapes], I’m never really big on people doing part twos of classics,” says Stat Quo, who is no longer signed to Shady/Aftermath but still works with several of their artists in a variety of capacities. “But if you want to look at the track record, Dre did a [The] Chronic and then a Chronic 2 [2001] and both of them were incredible, so let’s hope they duplicated that feat. I don’t put anything past Eminem. I believe he’s one of the best to ever do it, if not the best.”

    . In 2000, after Eminem and Will Smith met up, Smith asked if Eminem was happy at Aftermath. Eminem replied he wasn't because he was getting screwed over his money and forced to take it up the ass. Smith recommended Cash Money Records to Eminem but he said that as he was about to sign, Dr Dre threatened to kill him if he did not withdraw from the deal. Will Smith did warn him he would decline in populariy but he stayed at Aftermath and as a result, he became pop and fell off in popularity. Cash Money Records (now known as YMCMB) grew in popularity.

  • ppp

    oldschool feel? and a new approach along side Rick always does something different every album this could be a very good album if the lyics are there

  • Kramer

    Hopefully not. Hopefully sounds similar to MMLP

  • dentaldamboy

    I've changed sides. Eminem is the king of rap. MMLP2

  • Chris Etrata

    None of my comments gets replied on top of the page yet people would rather scroll down and reply to dental fuck boy.

  • imho

    that said if Em really is doing what he said in his 15 sec snippet and bringing it back to hiphop--itll be another classic easily. 1)eminem show 1A) MMLP 2)SSLP 3)Recovery 4)relapse 100)encore

  • Chris Etrata

    I can't stop myself from repeating the line say fuck it, before we kick the bucket life's too short to not go for broke.

  • imho

    thats easy to say off a 15 second clip..but to say that will be his whole record. idk about all that. and i was a little shocked em said part 2 as well bec he just guarnteed to get it compared to his classic and if it falls short em will get more shit for it then had he named it something different in the first place

    "C4 only went 2x platinum" Only lol

  • Chris Etrata

    Whoever DJed Bezerk, he already did far more than DJ Khaled. I can't stop hitting the replay button on youtube.

    • kenajj

      umm, Rick fucking Rubin produced it. He's kind of a big deal.

    • Chris Etrata

      HAHAHAHAHAHA!! You really think that DJ Khaled actually did any work? Fuck no. The guy who djed Bezerk has done far more than Khaled. Who cares if he is a no name dj? Stop hating.

    • Anonymous

      Unless he's had platinum singles and scores of albums then he hasn't done shit compared to Khaled.

  • JustSimpleInfo

    Em, Dre, Rubin just singly handily caused other record labels and artist to reconsider dropping on the same day or month. Someone is not getting paid or going to be able to hit their numbers come November/December because Of Shady/Aftermath....... Its a wrap, literally....... Middle fingers to Em.... Keep up the good work...

    2013 has been a good year for hip-hop so far. Solid, successful albums from Jay-Z, Kanye, and J Cole were released, Kendrick and Macklemore went platinum, YMCMB and MMG are flopping and taking Ls, people are getting tired of 2 Chainz, and Eminem is about to release a monster album that'll bring the whole game on their knees.

  • Chris Etrata

    Anyone else notice the rick rubin influence in bezerk? From what I've heard, it harks back to the golden age of hiphop. No wonder why Rubin executive produced it today. Sad thing is that 13 year old kids will say its not hiphop just because they listen to ymcmb.

    • Chris Etrata

      Its true that today's kids do care about the beat. I care about both the beat and lyrics. And this beat is far more dope than Mikewill Lex Luger and those shitty producer put together. Im hoping this will be another no. 1 single.

    • Anonymous

      Why would you expect today's kids to know who Rick Rubin is, or care what the sound is reminiscent of? All young people care about is the beat. If Eminem gets weird, and uses accents, forget it. Nobody will play this shit.

    • Chris Etrata

      Ugh Tapout. All I hear is that they bang pussy. Tell me how many times wayne alone used the word pussy.

    • kenajj

      exactly. it's not "tapout" so the fuckin hip hop idiots will think something's not right.

  • Daniel

    Em ain't on the level of Beastie. He may try to imitate it but it is going to fall flat is Beastie is what he is reaching for.

    • em

      this is some funny shit lmfao... wayne is alright, but not as good as shady and rich gang was a flop. all rich gang did was waste their own time on something nobody fucking care about. ill give u props for being a a good troll tho hahahahah

    • Daniel

      With all due respect what I was saying is that if that was his goal to make something similar to the Beastie Boys he would fail simply as that. No one will ever recreate what they have made.

    • imho

      why people still give dental damboy the time of the day after months and months of the same trolling is beyond me smh

      Nobody believes your lies. C4 went 2x platinum, not diamond. Eminem has one of the biggest fanbases in music and consist of many people of every background around the world. Auto-tune is on How To Love, he can't play the guitar. Rich Gang barely sold 50,000 copies.

    • dentaldamboy

      C4 went diamond while Recovery went 4x platinum because his dedicated fanbase consisted of Dr Dre, Eminem, and his artists. No autotune on How to Love, I've seen him play guitar, Rich gang sold 5 million, and fathers and sons kissing isn't gay.

    • Anonymous

      More lies. C4 only went 2x platinum. Recovery went 4x platinum because of his dedicated fanbase. There's auto-tune on How To Love. He can't play the guitar at all; he sucks at it. Rich Gang didn't even sell 50k overall, biggest failure of the year.

    • dentaldamboy

      Tha Carter 4 has gone diamond. Recovery only got to 4x platinum because Dr Dre and Eminem were buying most of the copies. I don't notice autotune on how to love and I've seen him play the guitar. Rich Gang is at 5x platinum. Biggest success of the year.

      Eminem>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Wayne Wayne doesn't stand a chance against Eminem.

    • Anonymous

      Still lying. Recovery went 4x platinum while C4 went 2x platinum. There is auto-tune on How To Love. Wayne is not like Jimi Hendrix at all because unlike Jimi, he can't play the guitar and doesn't make rock music, just pop-rap shit over rock-influenced FL Studio beats. Rich Gang is at 5x wood.

    • dentaldamboy

      There you go hating on me bitch. Wayne is far better than Eminem. Tha Carter 4 went diamond while recovery just went gold. No autotune was present on songs like How to Love. Milli Vanilli isn't a real singer. He's jimi Hendrix because he can do rock music well. Why do you think his raps are terrible? Rich Gang is at 5x platinum.

    • Anonymous

      There you go making up lies, dentalbitch. Wayne ain't shit compared to Eminem. Recovery outsold C4. Wayne has a shitty, off-key singing voice that relies on auto-tune every time. He's nothing like Jimi Hendrix, he's more like Milli Vanilli. His raps are terrible and all of his albums are uncreative and lazy. Rich Gang bombed selling 24k 1st week; Eminem's albums sell that much in less than a minute.

    • dentaldamboy

      Wayne really is besting eminem here. Ever since the hiatus, Tha Carter 4 sold more than recovery. Wayne has a great singing voice but can also be the next jimi hendrix. His raps are terrific and he does concept albums about the study of women, cars, and money. And Rich Gang did sell 2 million opening week, more than what eminem will sell.

      ^ HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wayne beating Em and the Beasties? Soulful singing (if you can call screaming and moaning over auto-tune singing)? Killer raps? Rich Gang selling 2 million? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Biggest joke of the year. You're killing me here.

    • dentaldamboy

      Wayne triumphs them both with his soulful singing and his killer raps. That;s why Rich Gang sold 2 million opening week.
