The possibility of a new Eminem album inching its way to the masses is looking more and more like a reality. On Wednesday, Em dropped a 4-minute instrumental called "The Real Slim Shady" on his YouTube channel. As of right now, the video has over 24,000 views and fans are curious as to what it could mean. It says the beat was made by PhilipJones16 and the whole thing is incredibly jazzy and contains some nice Saxophone lines.
Eminem has always been lowkey about the way he drops music. One would just have to look back at his Kamikaze project and how it completely dropped out of the blue. Also the rollout for 2017’s Revival started off similarly. But instead of smooth jazz, Em’s team built a whole campaign around a fictitious prescription drug called Revival. The campaign kicked off in October of that year and by December, Em’s ninth studio album had arrived.
