Album release: Eminem
It’s been three years since Eminem got back to his rapping roots with 2010’s “Recovery” and critics praised his work. Boston Globe critic James Reed went so far as to say that when the Detroit-based lyricist was “on,” he was untouchable.
Em announced that his eighth studio album would drop this year by wearing a hat during the 2012 World Series that listed the years that his previous albums have dropped, with the most recent being 2010, followed by 2013. He has yet to comment on a firm release date.
