Calling all Eminem fans.
With Eminem’s highly anticipated album, Revival, just under two weeks from its reported release date of Dec. 15, it’s safe to say artists and fans alike are more than ready at this point.
To help tide stans over, New Jersey-born, Los Angeles-based producer and recording artist Mike Zombie has decided to flip “Lose Yourself,” freestyling over the 2002 classic cut.
“I’m ahead of my time / don’t you ever put me with them,” he spits. “I came in this b—h with the bars / They was just taking them in.”

After lending his talents to Jean Grae and Quelle Chris’ new album, Everything’s Fine, which dropped at the tail end of March, Your Old Droog has returned with a new off-the-top offering, titled “Live from NYC.”
During the four-minute freestyle, Droog goes in over an instrumental provided by Mono En Stereo, with both complimenting each other’s affinity for Golden Era aesthetic and authenticity. Over a boom-bap beat, the New York rapper smoothly raps his piece, casually drifting between calm self-assurance and melodic braggadocio.
“Me? I won’t be shocked when my work is in the MoMA,” he spits. “Plus I never cared much for certification / Word to my G.E.D and Kindergarten diplomas / Since then the poems as sick as lymphoma.”
Elsewhere in the track, Your Old Droog also shares gems about his place as a fixture in the independent hip-hop scene, spits game about the music industry and further reminds fans how he truly is a diamond in the rough (especially when it comes to today’s era of mumble rap).
