Eminem has dropped the follow-up to 2018’s Kamikaze and boy we are excited. The rapper surprise-released his latest album, Music To Be Murdered By on Thursday, January 16.
Produced by himself along side notorious beat maker Dr Dre, the 20-track album boasts a number of high profile features including Young MA, Royce da 5’9” & White Gold, Ed Sheeran, the late Juice WRLD, Skylar Grey, Black Thought of The Roots, Q-Tip, Denaun, Anderson Paak, Don Toliver, KXNG Crooked, and Joell Ortiz. I know crazy.
Music To Be Murdered By arrives in the same fashion as Kamikaze did, overnight and with little to no warning. The Detroit MC left no hints he was working on a new project, but his producer S1, mentioned he was hard at work in the studio in a recent interview with HipHop-N-More.
“They’re always real quiet and real secretive,” the producer said. “But I just know he’s been cutting a lot of records, so we’ll see what happens with that.”
Em’s longtime collaborator 50 Cent also mentioned that new music was in the works. “Eminem sent me a record now, he’s working on now,” he told Bootleg Kev and DJ Hed on Los Angeles’ Real 92.3 radio station. “He got some things man. Still the highest-selling rap artist in the world. We’re doing it now.”
The 8Mile rapper most recently appeared on Fat Joe’s 2019 record, Family Ties, where he hopped on the track ‘Lord Above’, featuring producer Dr Dre and Mary J. Blige, and took shots at Nick Cannon, stirring up some controversy in true Eminem fashion.
