Eminem has “surprise-dropped” so many albums in the past couple of years that the arrival of a rumor has basically become the official announcement. And sure enough, days after very detailed rumors broke about the impending release of a follow-up to his most recent surprise-dropped album, “Music to Get Murdered By,” it arrived. Collaborators include Dr. Dre (rapping on “Guns Blazing” and co-producing “Discombobulated”), Ty Dolla $ign, DJ Premier, and Skylar Gray.
The world went into a frenzy the other day when rumors and speculation flooded the entire internet and Eminem didn’t even have to say a word. In an Instagram post shared on Tuesday (December 15), Dem Jointz displayed the cover art for several projects he says he worked on this year. In addition to crafting the song “Never Love Again” for Music To Be Murdered By, Dem apparently contributed to a Music To Be Murdered By: Side B, which sits right next to the original cover art in the photo. He wrote in the caption, “Even Thru The Shit-Storm, Thank God For Another Successful Year!! . . . #ProducedWrittenMixedByDemJointz.”
“Side B” arrives 11 months after Eminem surprise-released “Music to Be Murdered By” (featuring guest spots from Juice WRLD, Ed Sheeran, Young M.A, Anderson .Paak and production from Dr. Dre.), which followed 2018’s surprise-dropped “Kamikaze.” Also released today is the visual for GNAT, directed by Lyrical Lemonade’s Cole Bennett, and finds Eminem sticking to the persona he’s developed throughout his career as the chaotic, hell-raising individual we now know him for.
