Eminem Drops Sequel Album to Music to Be Murdered By: Listen
On Friday (Dec. 18), Shady released the Music to be Murdered By Side B Deluxe Edition. The offering features 16 songs. On the new project, Em invites Dr. Dre, Ty Dolla Sign, Dr Premier and more along for the ride. This is the first time Em has ever dropped two solo studio projects in a single calendar year.
Em has largely kept a low profile as the world has been falling apart in 2020. Speculation arose that a new Slim Shady project would be dropping over the weekend after the cover art began circulating on the internet. It featured a darkened image of the Detroit rapper wearing a fedora with a crow on his shoulder, in a similar vein to the Alfred Hitchcock-themed original cover art. A purported tracklist also hit the internet, which was shot down by at least one of the artists that was featured on it.
The original edition of Music to Be Murdered By was a surprise as well when it was released back in January. The LP featured Anderson .Paak, Young M.A, Don Toliver, Black Thought, Royce 5’9″ and more, as well as the hit Juice Wrld-assisted single “Godzilla.” Even with no promotion, the album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart after moving 279,000 equivalent album units. Now, the rap god bookends the year with a new version.
