Looks Like We’re Getting A New Eminem Album This Year

And Dr. Dre says… 2024 will be the year we get a new Eminem album. Slim Shady’s rap-Yoda dropped the bombshell on US TV talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week, confirming he had the rapper’s blessing to spill the tea.

“Eminem is working on his own album, which is coming out this year,” Dre said. “I actually talked to him and he said it was okay for me to make that announcement right here on this show. So he has an album coming out, I’ve got songs on it and it’s fire.”

He continued, “I’m actually gonna hear the entire album for the first time tomorrow. He holds his music close to his chest, so I haven’t heard everything. I haven’t even heard everything complete that I’ve done, but I’m gonna hear it, and he’s putting out an album this year.”

The forthcoming record will mark Eminem’s 12th LP, forming the follow-up to 2020’s Music to Be Murdered By, which arrived as a surprise release in January of that year.

Dre was joined by fellow gangsta rap icons Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent for the Kimmel chat, which you can watch in full up above (skip to the 25:20 mark for the Eminem gear).
