Artwork features the rapper's childhood home in Detroit which has recently been put up for auction
Eminem has revealed the cover art for his forthcoming album ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’. See it above.
‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ is conceived as a sequel to the rapper’s classic 2000 album ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ and the new artwork consciously recalls that of the earlier the album. It features Eminem’s childhood home in north east Detroit, which has recently been put up for auction.
‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ is set for release on November 5 and will include the rapper’s recent tracks ‘Berzerk’ and ‘Survival’. The album features production from the likes of Rick Rubin, Dr. Dre and DJ Premier.
The rapper recently spoke about ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ on ESPN’s Saturday Night Football Show and claimed that “nothing” excited him about the album. He then added: “I’ll probably be most excited to just be done with it. It’s called ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ and it’s kind of a revisit to the first Marshall Mathers LP. That’s pretty much all I can probably say about it.”
The Detroit rapper was accused by fans of miming during his Reading & Leeds festival headline slots this summer. However, festival organiser Melvin Benn quickly refuted the claims, saying: “There’s some talk of [Eminem] miming? Fuck off. I have never heard such fucking nonsense in all my life.”
