Eminem Teams with Pink on ‘Won’t Back Down’
Eminem is hitting the guest features hard for his 'Relapse' follow-up, 'Recovery.' The new track 'Won't Back Down' has hit the Web, thanks to the folks over at RapRadar.com, pairing the Detroit MC with Pink. The rock-tinged, DJ Khalil-produced track clocks in at just over four minutes, and stays true to Em's brash 'Recovery' theme.
"Need I remind you, that I don't need the f---ing swine flu/ To be a sick pig/You're addicted on dope /I'm the longest needle around here/ Need a fix up?/ I'm a big shot," he raps. Em further purges his lady troubles, but despite the anger in his delivery, remains creative, fading out the lyrics mid-rant and coming in with " ... Turn me back up/ Are you insane?/Trying to talk over me in the car/ Shut the f--- up /While my sh--s playing."
But his masterful lyricism is at its best at the end, where he gets literally dirty. "I'm a s--- stain on the underwear of life/ What's the saying? Where there is thunder there is light/ And then the next thing that it never strikes twice, in the same place/ Then how the f--- have I been hit six times in three different locations, on four separate occasions?/ And you can bet your stankin' a-- that I've come to smash everything in my path ... So hit the dance floor cutie, while I do my duty on this microphone/ Shake your booty, Shorty/ I'm the s---/ Why you think Proof use to call me Doody?"
