It's not a response to Kendrick Lamar's internet-breaking verse, but when was the last time you heard Eminem sound this, well, good?

Yeah the chorus is pretty tame (which features Skylar Grey), and the sound-effects from the video detract from the overall experience, but the fact that he sounds like he needs to rap, rather than sounding like he feels he should, speaks volumes ("...it was about bustin' raps, and standing for something") .

Listen to 'Survival' below, courtesy of CoS. The track is rumoured to appear on his forthcoming eighth album, which is set to be released this year.
