Eminem rarely appears in public these days. Even on Instagram, he's been promoting the 15th anniversary of The Eminem Show and supporting Big Proof's son's music career. But you'll also notice that his latest posts are promoting the new HBO four-part series Defiant Onesincluding a new picture of himself, Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar.

Earlier this week, at the premiere of Defiant Ones in Los Angeles, Eminem posed for a picture of him with Dre and Compton's Kung Fu Kenny. The in-depth limited series from HBO looks to offer a history on Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine's time in the music industry together. The director Allen Hughes had the chance to film Dr. Dre and Jimmy for three years for the making of the show. It should also include some great stories like the time Snoop Dogg hung up on Dr. Dre the first time they spoke because he wouldn't believe he got that call.

Em is prominently featured in the trailer, differentiating between Dr. Dre the innovator and Jimmy the levitator. Seeing how Eminem signed with Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment early in his career and they've been good friends through the years, Em will hopefully have some more insight into the minds of Dre and Iovine throughout the series.

But the Defiant Ones screening isn't the only public appearance Shady's made lately. He was in Malibu with 2 Chainz working on something mysterious, and you can peep those pics below as well.
