eminem announces new album

It’s will be his first album in more than four years

Eminem has announced his 12th studio album, ‘The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce)’ will be arriving this year.

Shortly before his appearance at the NFL Draft on Thursday night, a trailer for the new album was shown, which revealed the album would be dropping in summer 2024.

You can watch it below.

The teaser is a mock trailer for true crime documentary all about the death of Eminem’s alter ego, Slim Shady.

A reporter tells the camera: “Through his complex and oft-criticized, tongue-twisting rhymes, the anti-hero known as Slim Shady has had no shortage of enemies.”

We then see 50 Cent, Eminem’s longtime associate, say: “He’s not a friend, he’s a psychopath.”

The reporter continues, “The same rude lyrics and controversial antics may have ultimately led to his demise. Join me as we recreate the events that led to the murder of Slim Shady.”

The Detroit rapper himself then appears, with a blurred face, and says: “I knew it was only a matter of time for Slim.”

‘The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce)’ will be the first new album from the legendary rapper since January 2020 when he surprised the music world with ‘Music to Be Murdered By’.

Eminem first adopted the Slim Shady alter ego in the late 90s when he released ‘Slim Shady EP’ and ‘The Slim Shady LP.’

It’s often as Slim that the rapper is his most aggressive and confrontational with his lyrics. ‘Guilty Conscience’, ’97 Bonnie and Clyde’ and ‘Kill You’ are some of the best Slim Shady songs.
