What are the odds we can have Kanye West keep his mouth shut until his next album is released in the summer of 2014? Not likely, but West's next album will be produced by Rick Rubin.

Kanye turned to Rubin when "Yeezus" was in the final stages of production and Rubin also produced Eminem's latest album "MMLP2" and Kanye kinda took a line from Em when talking about why he is using Rubin again when speaking to Billboard and other interviewers lately:

"Rubin is not a producer, he is a reducer."

Kinda similar to the Rubin produced Em track "Survival" line:

"I'm not a rapper, I'm an adapter."

Reducer might be right as Yeezus was 10 songs and clocked in at around 40 minutes.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Kanye does know that Rubin is Jewish right? Might want to check yourself in recent interviews Yeezus.  Check Yeezego sometimes....

“BERZERK” By Eminem Video Premiere Featuring Rick Rubin, Kendrick Lamar, & Kid Rock! Watch Now!

The new EMINEM video "BERZERK" video premiered earlier today featuring Rick Rubin, Kendrick Lamar, and Kid Rock.

"BERZERK" is from MMLP2, the "sequel" to "The Marshall Mathers LP" released 12 years ago.

This is a fun song compared to "Stan" and "The Way I Am" but Mathers explained on ESPN College Game Day that MMLP2 will be very similar to the "Mathers" LP which will be a good thing for fans.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Everyone warming up to the sample yet?

Eminem teased he would be on the MTV VMA's and he was...in the form of a commercial announcing his new album "MMLP2" which will be in stores November 5th, 2013!

The best album of his career, in our opinion, was "The Marshall Mathers LP" big time!

The new single "Berzerk" will be released on Tuesday.

The first sample sounds very Beastie Boys-ish.

The new album will be produced by Dr. Dre & Rick Rubin.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Guess the blonde hair is back to. A sequel to the "Marshall Mathers LP"...? Going to be Berzerk for sure!
