I knew Eminem song has been leaked onto the internet. Well, it’s not exactly new. It was reportedly recorded in 2007 but it was never released. The song, called “Syllables”, features Jay-Z and Dr. Dre along with Stat Quo and Cashis. The song is about how nobody cares about lyrics anyone more in hip hop. Instead, it’s all about a good beat and a catchy chorus.
Personally, I think “Syllables” is a great song. It rings so true. If you turn on a hip hop radio station, virtually every song uses the same formula. Lyrics, it seems, have been eliminated from that formula.
The funniest part of the song is when Eminem starts singing the chorus, which mocks the wack hip hop choruses we hear today.
If you like Eminem or you are tired of the current hip hop formula, you’ll appreciate this song. Here’s the video for “Syllables” by Eminem featuring Jay-Z and Dr. Dre.
