Eminem is planning something special for the 15th anniversary of the release of his third album, The Eminem Show.
Shady teased his plans on Instagram, posting a video memorial of the LP, which was released on May 28, 2002. In the clip, old school TVs show flashbacks of Em from The Eminem Show era, displaying clips from his videos and concerts, and behind-the-scenes footage. All this plays to the score of the album’s hit single, “Cleanin’ Out My Closet.” The caption reads: “#TheEminemShow Anniversary Is Coming Soon. Link in bio.”
The link 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 all comes in the capsule.
The Eminem Show was Slim’s third major label LP, and by the time it was released the Detroit MC was already a certified rap star with his two previous albums, The Slim Shady LP (1999) and The Marshall Mathers LP (2000), both reaching platinum status. The project was spearheaded by the hit singles “Til I Collapse” featuring Nate Dogg, “Without Me,” “Cleanin’ Out My Closet,” “Superman,” and “Sing for the Moment.” It eventually went diamond.
Em hasn’t put out an album since 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Last October, he released the new track “Campaign Speech” and teased that a new album is on the way. Since then however, Em has been mostly quiet, save for snapping on tracks here and there, including a ridiculous verse on Big Sean’s “No Favors.”
