Eminem releasing The Eminem Show expanded edition this week
Eminem is releasing an expanded edition of ‘The Eminem Show’ this week.
The 49-year-old rapper is treating fans to an updated version of his 2002 album on Thursday (26.05.22) to mark his fourth LP’s 20th anniversary.
Referencing lyrics from hit single ‘Without Me’, he took to Instagram on Tuesday (24.05.22) and wrote: “‘Well, if you want Shady, this is what I’ll give ya’. #TheEminemShow 20th Anniversary Expanded Edition drops Thursday 5/26 (sic)”
Slim Shady also shared a video which featured an animated version of the hip hop star in front of multiple screens all playing the music videos for the album’s big singles, including ‘Without Me’, ‘Superman’, ‘White America’, ‘Cleaning Out My Closet’ and ‘Sing For The Moment’.
He hasn’t provided further details of what the expanded edition will entail, although it’s likely to feature demos and potentially some unheard tracks.
Eminem is set to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside the likes of Dolly Parton and Carly Simon later this year.
In a bizarre statement acknowledging the news, he shared a cartoon of himself in front of the Minions from the ‘Despicable Me’ animated franchise, which was captioned: “The Minions congratulate Eminem. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2022.”
Eminem tweeted: “@Minions got my back. Shout out to Gru and them…”
Meanwhile, the rapper recently heaped praise on Kendrick Lamar for his new album ‘Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers’.
The ‘Lose Yourself’ hitmaker took to Twitter to share his thoughts on Kendrick’s new music, tagging his friend Dr Dre and writing: “This Kendrick album is f****** ridiculous. I’m speechless.”
It comes just months after the pair teamed up at the Super Bowl LVI halftime show back in February, performing with stars including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Mary J. Blige.
