Eminem Drops A Surprise Album ‘Music To Be Murdered By’


Eminem has done it again. Roughly 17 months after shocking his fans with the unexpected Kamikaze album, the rap titan is back with another surprise album — Music To Be Murdered By.

Comprised of 20 tracks, the album was inspired by famed director Alfred Hitchcock and features Royce Da 5’9, Ed Sheeran, Young M.A, Don Toliver, Joell Ortiz, Black Thought and the late Juice Wrld, among others.

Slim Shady’s latest work reuses the title and recreates the cover art of the 1958 album Alfred Hitchcock Presents Music To Be Murdered By. Marshall Mathers’ 11th studio LP also includes samples of Hitchcock speaking on the appropriately titled “Alfred” interlude and outro.

Music To Be Murdered By marks Em’s 11th studio album and follow-up to the aforementioned Kamikaze, which opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with over 434,000 total album equivalent units. It was certified platinum by the RIAA only a few days later.

Also only minutes after unleashing Music To Be Murdered By, the inimitable Slim Shady unveiled a video for “Darkness”. The visual finds Em holed up in a Las Vegas hotel room where he’s drowning in alcohol, prescription pill bottles, guns and bullets, contemplating what would happen if he unloaded on the concertgoers below. Eminem paints a harrowing, disturbing takedown of gun violence, framed through the point of view of the perpetrator of the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting, one of the worst mass shootings in modern US history.
