EMINEM CELEBRATES ‘THE EMINEM SHOW’ ANNIVERSARY WITH CASSETTE REISSUE

Eminem released his third album, The Eminem Show, in 2002. Tonight, he released a series of bundles featuring merchandise that celebrates the album’s 15th anniversary.

The 44-year-old rapper teased the drop earlier this week on social media, sharing a link to an early access page for The Eminem Show Anniversary Capsule. The range officially rolled out Tuesday night, offering different packages in different price ranges. The biggest bundle goes for $250 and comes with a T-shirt, cassette, and an autographed poster. There’s also an unsigned package with the same items for $60, as well as tee/cassette package for $35, and a poster/cassette option for $30.

Eminem’s 2002 album The Eminem Show recently turned 15, and the Detroit rapper shared some insight into the project’s inspiration. In a handwritten note he posted on Instagram—that also included credits for the album—he explained that the 1998 film The Truman Show was the driving force behind the album’s creation.

“My life felt like it was becoming a circus around that time and I felt like I was always being watched,” he wrote. This falls in line with the film’s plot; Jim Carrey plays a man unwittingly living inside a TV show, where his life is broadcast to viewers around the world.

Eminem previously teased the release with a video shared on Twitter. Last year, to celebrate the 16th anniversary of The Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem sold bricks from his childhood home. His last new music was an eight-minute song called “Campaign Speech,” which featured references to Trump, Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, Colin Kaepernick, and Robin Thicke.
