According to Eminem’s official website, fans can join a live chat and listen to the album while the Detroit rapper answers questions from those online.
Released on May 23, 2000 via Aftermath and Interscope Records, ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ was produced by Dr. Dre, F.B.T., Mel-Man, The 45 King, and Eminem himself.
It sold 1.78 million copies in its first week in the US, making it the fastest-selling album of all-time in the US before it was dethroned in 2015 by Adele’s ’25’. Landing at Number One on Billboard and stying there for eight weeks, it has since sold over 35 million copies worldwide.
Speaking during his recent three-hour Shade45 radio show special, titled Music To Be Quarantined By, the rapper explained his love of the late rapper as he prepared to play ‘If I Die Tonight’ from 2Pac’s 1995 album ‘Me Against The World.’
He said: “OK, this next song is from an artist who I feel like might be the greatest songwriter of all-time.
