It turns out Eminem’s show has an encore — fans just had to wait two and a half years for it, rather than the typical couple of minutes.
The rapper otherwise known as Slim Shady will release Encore, the follow-up to 2002′s smash The Eminem Show, on November 16. Details on the release, such as the first single or collaborators, have not yet been revealed, but Em’s spokesperson said the album will feature all new material.
Encore will hit shelves around the same time as another album featuring Eminem, a collection of unreleased Tupac tracks with Em as one of the producers. Along with those projects, the Detroit rapper recently recorded a verse for a remix of the country’s #1 song, “Lean Back”.
Em last hit record stores in April with D12 World, the second album from his hometown crew, which has produced a couple of hits in “My Band” and “How Come.”
D12 earned three Video Music Award nominations but left Sunday’s ceremony empty-handed. Eminem was not present with the rest of the group, who attended wearing Detroit Pistons garb.
