'Eminem: The Way I Am' is out October 21

Eminem is publishing his memoirs in a new book entitled ‘Eminem: The Way I Am’.

Due to be published in the UK on October 21, the book will feature previously unseen photos, journal notes, hand drawn illustrations and lyrics.

The ‘Stan’ rapper made his first public appearance in three years to launch the book in New York last night (October 16), at a party attended by 50 Cent, LL Cool J and Kid Kudi.

The venue, a trainer shop in Manhattan, was decked out with blow-up pictures from the book, Eminem‘s trainer collection and various awards and memorabilia.

Earlier yesterday, Eminem announced details of his new album ‘Relapse’ in an interview on his Sirius radio station Shade 45.
