Eminem’s ‘The Death of Slim Shady’: An Obituary Before His New Album

Eminem is almost ready to drop his 13 studio album, “The Death of Slim Shady.”

With the debut of his 12 studio album, The Death Of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce), Eminem is burying his alter ego.

Slim Shady was formally pronounced dead by the Rap God on Monday, May 13, when he published an obituary in the Detroit Free Press. Complex reports that the obituary’s heading is “Slim Shady Made Lasting Impressions.”

“A product of Detroit, who began his career there as a rogue splinter in the flourishing underground rap scene of the mid to late 1990s, Shady first became a household name in 1999 with the debut of his playfully deranged single My Name Is,” the obituary said.

The article goes on to say, “In the end, the very objects that appeared to be the instruments he utilized became calling cards that defined an existence that could only end suddenly and horrifyingly. His convoluted and difficult life is drawing to an end, and the legacy he leaves behind is as unresolved as the way this figure left this planet.

May he genuinely find the peace in an eternity that he could not find on Earth, the eulogy ends.

Not many weeks have passed since Eminem made his new album announcement on Instagram.

Part of the made-up Detroit Murder Files, the teaser showed a real crime reporter declaring Slim Shady dead while emphasizing his many adversaries and his intricate, frequently criticized rhymes.

Since 2020’s Music to Be Murdered By, Eminem hasn’t released a full-length album.
