Eminem Sends Holiday Message in Grim Cartoon
Eminem is all in the Christmas spirit. Well, sort of. Expressing his fondness of the upcoming holiday in the most Marshall Mathers way possible, Em recently issued his season's greetings to fans by way of an eerie Instagram post.
The cartoon video shows a man, presumably Em, wearing a Jason mask and cutting down a Christmas tree with a chainsaw. He is surrounded by various weapons, including a grenade, a machete and some dynamite. Presents lay next to the tree that are engulfed in flames. "Until it all falls down, have a happy holiday," is branded above the cartoon.
This is Em's second time having fun with the holiday. He recently stopped by Sirius XM’s Shade 45 for its special Hannukah Radio episode. During the show, the Detroit rapper joked about a new single and gave a hilarious preview of the chorus. "Tell me what time, what time, what time/What time you suckin’ it? What time you suckin’ it?” he rapped.
Back in October, the MC revealed he has a new album on the way and offered up a new track titled "Campaign Speech." “Don’t worry I’m working on an album! Here’s something meanwhile,” he tweeted. No more details were given on the forthcoming project, and since then, the Rap God has been mostly quiet.
It's looking like 2017 will be the year Marshall drops the new project, which will be his ninth solo album and his first since 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
