During a brief, no frills Beats by Dre commercial, the Not Afraid rapper announced that his new album, Marshall Mathers LP 2 — a sequel to 2000's Marshall Mathers LP — will arrive November 5 and the project has been executive produced by Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin
A new track from the Detroit star scored the ad, which sees him spitting:  "Let's take it back to straight hip-hop and start it from scratch/ I'm about to bloody this track up, everybody get back/ That's why my pen needs a pad because my rhymes' on the rag."
