Despite becoming Eminem’s eighth consecutive No. 1 album, Revival didn’t fare too hot in the critical sphere, earning several disparaging reviews. That lukewarm reception apparently made Em mad as hell, because he’s back with a remix of Revival track “Chloraseptic” that takes aim at his haters.
In addition to new bars from Phresher — who was relegated to the original song’s hook — the remix boasts a verse from 2 Chainz; likely the same one that was cut from the album. As explosive as that long-promised verse is, the main attraction here is Slim. “Not as raw as I was / ‘Walk on Water’ sucked? / Bitch, suck my dick,” he furiously raps in reference to the album’s Beyoncé-featuring lead single.
Later, Eminem suggests the criticism about Revival’s pop guests actually isn’t making him mad at all: “You just called my shit trash, thank God, I rap better when the odds are stacked / ‘Revival’s wack, I don’t like the ‘Zombie’ track / And when he’s talking that garbage, like how to crap / Where’s your content at
