Eminem is ready to sting you again. After dropping the song “Venom” in 2018 as part of the roll-out of the Spider-Man spinoff film of the same name, Slim Shady teased a follow-up to accompany the upcoming Venom sequel, Friday’s (Oct. 1) Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
According to a post from Marshall, the new song features frequent collaborator Skylar Grey, as well as Polo G and Mozzy; at press time the name of the track and exact release date had not yet been announced. An 18-second teaser features an ominous tick-tocking beat and spooky keys, but no vocals.
It’s a busy week for Shady, who’s slated to open his Mom’s Spaghetti restaurant in his native Detroit on Wednesday (Sept. 29). The grub spot’s name is based on the lyric from Eminem’s 2002 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit “Lose Yourself,” on which he raps, “His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy/ There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti.” The restaurant, located at 2131 Woodward Ave. in Detroit, will host a grand opening on Wednesday at 5 p.m.
And while his music will be heard on the big screen, infrequent actor Mathers will appear as legendary Detroit teenage drug dealer/FBI informant White Boy Rick in an upcoming episode of pal 50 Cent’s new Starz Black Mafia Family series. The series will also feature recurring appearances from Snoop Dogg, La La Anthony, Kash Doll and Serayah.
