Eminem has joined instagram and has posted his first picture.

The rapper arrived on the social media website with a mysterious first photograph, which showed him sticking two middle fingers up. The caption was simply a link to his website. You can view the image below.

This comes just a few weeks after Eminem unveiled a brand new track, titled 'Survival'. The track taken from Eminem's forthcoming eighth album, which will follow 2010's 'Recovery'. As yet there is no official release date for the record, but it is expected before the end of this year. 'Survival' features Skylar Grey and was produced by DJ Khalil.

DJ Alchemist recently revealed that the rapper's new album will see him going to "further territories". A long-term collaborator with the rapper, Alchemist says that Eminem is "getting back on his feet" with his last two albums and that his next release will see the rapper return to form. When asked what to expect from the album, Alchemist replied: "Clearly going to further territories. I think what you would expect, especially after the last go-round. He was just getting his feet back on 'Relapse' and then 'Recovery' just came with the smash hits and everything and I think now - he's Eminem."

Eminem will headline this year's Reading and Leeds Festivals. Slim Shady will play the Reading leg tomorrow night (August 24), before closing Leeds on Sunday (25).
