Eminem Teases That He Has Something Planned For 15th Anniversary Of ‘The Eminem Show’
“The Eminem Show” was released on May 28, 2002 and cemented Eminem’s legacy as an all-time great. “The Eminem Show” reached #1 in 19 countries, including in the United States where it was the best-selling album of 2002 with 7.6 million copies sold. The fourth studio album and third major label LP continued Em’s dark, violent, and at times comical tales of his over-the-top alter ego, Slim Shady. Sunday marks 15 years since the debut of Marshall Mather’s highly successful and very personal “The Eminem Show,” Slim appears to be planning something special for the anniversary.
Eminem teased a video on his social media accounts that say that the rapper has something planned for the anniversary.
The teaser features “Cleanin’ Out My Closet,” a song Eminem had regretted and retired. Back in 2013, he apologized to his mother in the song “Headlights.”
But I’m sorry, Momma, for “Cleanin’ Out My Closet”
At the time I was angry, rightfully? Maybe so
Never meant that far to take it though
‘Cause now I know it’s not your fault, and I’m not making jokes
That song I no longer play at shows
And I cringe every time it’s on the radio
Besides “Cleanin’ Out My Closet,” “The Eminem Show” featured instant classics such as “Without Me,” “Superman,” and “Sing for the Moment.”
The link on Eminem’s Instagram directs fans to the Shady Records website, where they can sign up for early access to “The Eminem Show capsule.” No more details have been given on what is in the anniversary capsule.
Eminem hasn’t put out an album since 2013’s “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.” Could it be an announcement on a sequel to “The Eminem Show?”
