Eminem Unveils New Album “The Death Of Slim Shady” Set for 2024 Release

Prepare for the final chapter of Slim Shady’s saga

After a notable absence from the music scene throughout the 2020s, Eminem, the rap titan who left an indelible mark on pop culture in the 2000s and dominated the charts in the 2010s, is finally breaking his silence with a forthcoming album. Titled “The Death of Slim Shady,” the announcement arrived unexpectedly during the NFL Draft on April 25, where Eminem made a surprise appearance. Following this, a cryptic video teaser surfaced on YouTube, hinting at the album’s theme and release.

The teaser, styled after crime documentaries like Unsolved Mysteries, features a mysterious figure in a trenchcoat recounting the adversaries accumulated by “Slim Shady” over the years due to his provocative lyrics. Longtime collaborator 50 Cent also makes an appearance, expressing apprehension about the rapper’s alter ego. As snippets from classic Eminem music videos play, the narrative takes a dramatic turn when it’s suggested that Slim Shady met his end, possibly due to his controversial persona.


Set to drop in the summer of 2024, “The Death of Slim Shady” promises to be a significant event in Eminem’s discography. The teaser concludes with a revealing moment as a pixelated Eminem momentarily reveals his true identity, accompanied by the subtitle “Coup de Grace,” signifying a final decisive blow.

Eminem originally created Slim Shady as an outlet for his frustrations at the beginning of his rap career. “When I started rapping as that character,” he once explained to Fact Magazine, “it was a way for me to vent all my frustrations and just blame it on him. If anybody got mad about it, it was him that said it.”

Throughout his career, Eminem has alternated between embracing and distancing himself from Slim Shady, exploring themes of addiction and family drama in his recent albums. As he confronts his past in his music, it seems fitting that he would choose to bid farewell to Slim Shady in such a dramatic fashion.
