Hear Eminem's Bold 'Southpaw' Track "Phenomenal"

'Southpaw'

The song is featured on the soundtrack for the upcoming Jake Gyllenhaal film.

Eminem's contribution to the Southpaw soundtrack, "Phenomenal," is officially here.

The track is a bold, dark and at times an empowering ode on which Em rhymes about being, you guessed it, phenomenal — with some of his signature pop culture references thrown in.

"Let me self-empower you/ When you're down and they're tryin' to clown the f— out of you/ When you feel like you're runnin' out of fuel/ I'll show you how to use doubt as fuel/ Convert it to gunpowder too/ Now what you do is put the match to the charcoal fluid/ Put a spark to it like Martha Stewart barbecuing," he spits.

It's featured on the Shady Records-produced soundtrack for the upcoming film Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a boxer looking to rise up again after a tragedy, out July 24.

Give it a listen below.
