Shady Happens [Legally This Time!]

Ashamed of myself for being so slow on this as well, but the track that led to the disappearance of Friday Jams and had me momentarily thinking that the feds were gonna come to my apartment and take my precious piece of the internet away forever has leaked once again for what appears to be the last time.

Henceforth to be officially known as "Crack A Bottle," Eminem's new track seems finally complete and includes verses from the still-flowin Dr. Dre and the surprisingly melodic 50 Cent(s Jackson). I really dig this track and the fact that these 3 are together again in 2009 on a track that feels like the ones I was bumping from my first year dorm room in 2002. From Rolling Stone:
The third and likely final version of Eminem’s “Crack A Bottle” hit the Internet today, complete with new verses featuring Dr. Dre and 50 Cent. The track is expected to be included on the Slim Shady’s upcoming comeback LP Relapse, due out in the first quarter of 2009. As opposed to those previous five song leaks that left Eminem “heated,” this time the song was actually distributed to the media.
Props to Pigeons and Planes for the download link, which I can happily include without fear of being added to the list of Most Wanted Internet Pirates. Our long national nightmare is finally over, (legally) enjoy your new Slim Shady.

"This one begins where the last one ends.
Pick up where we left off and get smashed again."
