“Eminem Announces ‘The Death of Slim Shady’ Release Date with Chilling Horror Trailer”

On Tuesday, July 2, the “Lose Yourself” rapper, 51, published a new trailer on social media in advance of the release of his new album The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce) on Friday, July 12.

Setting the scene at “Pompsomp Hills Hospital,” the video depicts a laboring lady in the delivery room. The infant doesn’t seem to be breathing during the delivery, so the doctor smacks them many times. Their eyes become black and horns sprout as she gives the infant to them.

The new mother panics and the medical staff flees as the video cuts to the title of Eminem’s new album and a fragment from his latest track “Houdini.”

The artist behind “Crack a Bottle” also shared Spider-Man-themed cover art and the song “Tobey” (which features Big Sean and Babytron) with the world on July 2.

The first single from his next album, “Houdini” was dropped by Slim Shady on Friday, May 31.

Eminem is shown in the music video for his most recent single, which was released on the same day, taking a call from Dr. Dre; this harkens back to the music video for “Without Me” from 2002. “Guess who’s back, back again/Shady’s back, tell a friend.” is one of numerous references to the 22-year-old song that appears on the track.

The video shows Dr. Dre calling to inform the city that a time vortex from 2002 has opened, bringing a younger, blonde Eminem to 2024.

Eminem wears the same superhero outfit from the previous video, and the comic book-type graphics are reminiscent of “Without Me”; the younger and older incarnations of the “Superman” singer even share screen time.

The video also includes appearances by 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, and comedian Shane Gillis in the comic-book-style segments.

In the end, the “Stan” singer and his younger self clash, and the two selves merge into the hip-hop star’s older self, replete with longer, bleach-blonde hair.

This summer, the fifteen-time Grammy winner will release his twelfth studio album, The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce), as he revealed in April.

He broke the news on Instagram in a sneak peek that played before his 2024 NFL Draft presentation in Detroit.

Why is Slim Shady so popular?

Slim Shady’s popularity stems from a combination of factors:

Lyrical Prowess: Slim Shady, Eminem’s rapping persona, has tremendous talents. He’s recognized for his intricate rhyming schemes, wordplay, and lightning-fast delivery.

Controversial & Shocking: Slim Shady’s songs are often dark, and aggressive, and address difficult topics. This generated a buzz and drew attention, but it also aroused criticism.

Dark Humor and Storytelling: Slim Shady’s character is edgy, yet he explores real-life difficulties and societal concerns via black humor and brilliant storytelling.

These components came together to form a compelling and multifaceted persona that pushed boundaries and reinvented what hip-hop could be.
