Detroit rappers Trick Trick, Eminem and Royce Da 5’9 are celebrating their independence this Fourth of July with the release of their long-awaited “Twerk Dat! Pop That!” track. #TwerkDat
As expected, the threesome’s new tune premiered online Friday (July 4).
Fresh off his “Calm Down” collaboration with Busta Rhymes, Eminem teams with the self-proclaimed mayor of Detroit, Trick Trick, and his fellow Bad Meets Evil member Royce Da 5’9? on Trick Trick’s booty-shaking banger “Twerk Dat! Pop That!” Slim Shady spazzes all over the Antt Beatz production, rapping about “wild in’ the f*ck out out like Bieber at 19 or Ice T in the ’90s,” and name checks Spike Lee and even Pharrell’s hat.

Details behind the new club banger surfaced online a few days ago.
The Detroit rapper’s long-awaited new single with Eminem and Royce da 5’9″ — a boomy, salacious club track titled “Twerk Dat Pop That” — will debut Friday morning on WKQI-FM’s “Mojo in the Morning show” (95.5), according to station programming chief Tony Travatto. The show runs 5-10 a.m., but a specific airtime has not been announced. Trick Trick will also host the station’s 7-10 p.m. on-air shift, spinning some of his own material and other personal favorites. The single, produced by Detroiter Antt Beatz, will be officially released Saturday. (Detroit Free Press)
Speculation of the new track reaching the masses heated up the ‘net last month.
“NEW @TRICKTRICKGS and @Eminem song comin exclusively to 955 on July 4th!! Produced by @AnttBeatz #Shady955 #DetroitLove,” a tweet read from Detroit station Channel 955 on June 22. (Channel 955’s Twitter)
Along with this track, Em and rap veteran Busta Rhymes released their new collabo earlier in the week.
Of course, no battle can truly begin without the right music; producer Scoop DeVille borrows the horns from House of Pain’s classic “Jump Around”. From there, two of the most furious spitters in all of rap-dom engage in six minutes of intense battle: Eminem is toxic and acerbic, making references to Abe Lincoln and his brain as a fried egg, while Busta is his usually dense, manic self, somehow managing to include “Fahrvergnügen” into his fervent wordplay.
