Would you like to experience the intoxicating pain of being bonded with a psychotic alien parasite? Well, good news: Marshall Mathers himself is here to help with a truly, truly bizarre new track for Sony’s Venom movie.
Yesterday Eminem dropped a surprise release for his album Kamikaze, which includes a new song created for the upcoming Venom movie that, I sincerely cannot state enough, is fully titled “Venom - Music From the Motion Picture”. And it is... a lot. It’s also very NSFW, so be warned should you have a listen to it below:
Did... did Eminem just rap a line about E.T. the Extraterrestrial that flowed immediately into a line about chokeholds and symbiotes? Why yes. That is a thing that happens in this four-minute-plus track. And that’s not the only lyrical nugget from this avant-garde piece of cross-promotion:
I’m the supervillain
Dad and mum was losin’ their marbles to
You Marvel that?
Eddie Brock is you
And I’m the suit
So call me Venom
You know what? I said this is absurd, but maybe it isn’t. Maybe it’s perfect for a movie that includes the line “You will be this armless, legless, faceless thing, won’t you, rolling down the street like a turd in the wind” in the most earnest manner possible. Maybe I don’t know what’s real any more.
Venom is out October 4, in some form of our cruel and strange reality.
