Eminem’s highly anticipated “Phenomenal” single is finally out.
“Reputation is validation,” Em rhymes on the track. “The only thing I’m capable of making is amazing / The only thing you’re capable of making is a false statement / An accusation / I’m legendary status, in fact.”
Fans might recall hearing a portion of the cut - which is now available on iTunes - in a March trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal’s upcoming film “Southpaw," which hits theaters July 24.
Then, an extended version of the single appeared in a Beats By Dre ad starring Draymond Green last month.
Now that “Phenomenal” is out, some fans are probably wondering when we’ll get a full LP from Marshall Mathers. As reported today, a solo Em LP doesn’t seem likely to drop this year, according to Shady’s fellow D-12 member Denaun Porter.
“You can’t tell with him,” Porter said when asked about a follow-up to 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2. "I’ll be in the studio with him next week, but we working on something else that doesn’t have anything to do with an album, his album. So, I doubt it, but I don’t know.”
