Eminem, the most popular living artist on Facebook, will be coming to the U.K. this summer, where he will be headlining this year’s V Festival.
Set to take place on August 20-21 in Weston and Hylands Park, Em will be joining such popular English acts as Arctic Monkeys, Plan B and Razorlight.
This will be the third outdoor music fest that Shady will be performing at. As previously reported, he has already signed up to top the bill at Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo.
In related news, eight unreleased tracks from the Detroit lyricist leaked online recently. Compiled under the title, Straight from the Vault, the EP features appearances from Obie Trice, B.o.B and D12. On “G.O.A.T.,” Slim calls himself the greatest rapper of all time. “They keep on saying the same rappers are the best, Jay-Z & Kanye West / Maybe they’re just trying to distract you from the fact that I’m coming back / Or maybe it’s cause I ain’t black / Maybe it’s because of that / Maybe it’s because I’m the highest selling artist in rap,” he spits.
As of press time, Eminem has not commented on the leaks.—Elan Mancini
