Eminem to Release 15th Anniversary Edition of ‘The Eminem Show’
A couple days ago, he got fans buzzing by posting a video on Instagram insinuating something special would be dropping to coincide with the album's release date on May 28. The date came and went without anything happening, but now, the Shady one is providing a few more details, revealing that an "anniversary collection" will be coming out.
Slim announced the additional news via Instagram: "#TheEminemShow Anniversary Collection. Link In Bio For Early Access," he wrote. The caption was attached to a picture of a hand-written note that explains the thought process behind the project. "The concept for The Eminem Show was inspired by The Truman Show because my life felt like it was becoming a circus at that time and I felt like I was always being watched," the note reads. "Basically Jim Carey [Carrey] wrote my album."
The Eminem Show, released in 2002, was spearheaded by hit singles “Til I Collapse” featuring Nate Dogg, “Without Me,” “Cleanin’ Out My Closet,” “Superman,” "White America" and “Sing for the Moment.” The LP eventually reached diamond status in 2011, becoming Em's second album to do so.
According to Em's website, the anniversary capsule will drop later tonight (May 30). You can sign up with your email address for early access.
