Everything We Know About Eminem’s Music to Be Murdered By: Side B

Eminem‘s rumor mill is running rampant and there’s no confirmation that’ll put an end to his fans’ agony over his unconfirmed next album. With the possibility of a deluxe album, presumably titled Music to Be Murdered By: Side B, looming in the air, social media users are fired up about the idea of new music from Em, but nothing is promised.

Last week, conversations began circulating on the internet suggesting that Slim Shady was planning on releasing a surprise album. The LP is supposed to be a second offering of the album he fired off at the top of 2020, Music to Be Murdered By.

No singles or features have been released by the Detroit native to accompany these rumors. Still, a release confirmation sheet claims to add truth to the rumors of the album’s release date and features on the project.

No artists currently associated with the rumored project have come forward to denounce the album’s existence. Eminem himself has remained tightlipped about the album. The fact that the rumors haven’t been denied does give stans some hope. Since being stuck in quarantine, it’s not hard to imagine that the 48-year-old rapper wouldn’t be busy in the studio making new music.

Eminem also has a track record of releasing heat without warning. At the top of the year, Em dropped off the first installment of Music to be Murdered By without any promotion or mention. The album moved 279,000 album-equivalent units in its first week and solidified him as one of the greatest of all-time in the rap game.

While fans await Em’s newest LP that appears to be dropping sooner rather than later, XXL breaks down everything we know about the Rap God’s Music to Be Murdered By: Side B.
