Detroit rapper Eminem shocked fans with the drop of his new 20 song album entitled "Music To Be Murdered By" (Jan 17). Eminem, whose real name is Marshal Mathers, teamed up with longtime producer pal Dr. Dre to produce this controversial 11th album release.
In 2019, rumors of a new Shady album began swapping after a song called "The Real Slim Shady" appeared on the famed rappers YouTube page.
During an interview with Bootleg Kev and DJ Hed on LA's Real 92.3, 50 Cent confirmed that Mathers was in the studio making new music. 50 stated:
"[Eminem] sent me a record now, he working on now," he said. "He got some things, man. Still the highest-selling rap artist in the world. We're doing it now."
Slim Shady's album cover is inspired by infamous filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 album, also entitled "Music To Be Murdered By."
Tracks on the album include collabs with Ed Sheeran, Skylar Grey, Royce Da 5'9" Anderson . Paak, Young M.A, Q-Tip, and rapper Juice WRLD who died in 2019 after a suspected drug-induced emergency during a flight to Chicago's Midway Airport.
