The slain rap rivals feature on a new track produced by Marshall Mathers...

EMINEM has brought together hip-hop bitterest rivals on record – but only after their death.

Marshall Mathers has produced a track, ’Running (Dying To Live)’ for a new posthumous Tupac Shakur album, and the track also contains a verse from Shakur’s fallen rival, [a][/a]. The song uses a Shakur vocal over a new Eminem backing track, which samples Edgar Winters’ blues classic ‘Dying To Live’ in its chorus.

Earlier this year, Eminem recorded a rap over an old Tupac production.

‘Running (Dying To Live)’ is taken from the forthcoming ‘soundtrack’, ‘Tupac: Resurrection’, which according to MTV will feature songs ‘that tell a chronological story of his life and career’.

The compilation was ‘inspired’ by a film about Shakur’s life to be released later this autumn. The album is set for a US release of November 4. The soundtrack will be the tenth Tupac album to be released since his death in 1996.
