Rapper Eminem is not likely to be releasing a new album anytime this year, but he said that he has something good in store for the fans.
One of his albums, “The Marshall Mathers LP,” is now on a reissue. The said album was considered by many to be one of his best works and is now on its 16th anniversary.
“In 2013 we revisited my childhood home for the sequel and later had the opportunity to put together some once in a lifetime collectibles created from the remains of what has become a very iconic symbol for me and my career. Do not miss out,” he said in one of his Instagram posts.
To celebrate the album’s 16th year, he offered on his website some limited-edition collectibles but unfortunately, these items were long sold out.
The items include an authentic brick from the rapper’s childhood home on Dresden St., Michigan which was featured on the cover of “The Marshall Mathers LP” and “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.” There were 700 bricks in total that came with a numbered certificate of authenticity and Eminem’s signature. The brick was enclosed with a stand with a description on it. There’s also the cassette version of the album with a 3D motion cover and last on the list were the Marshall Mathers dog tags that were made out of wood from the rapper’s home as well.
The portion of the proceeds will go to the Marshall Mathers Foundation that has been providing funds to other organizations that are helping troubled and at-risk youngsters around Michigan and across the United States.
The rapper is in a hiatus when it comes to making a new album right now, except for the collaborations he made with fellow artists in the soundtrack of Jake Gyllenhaal’s boxing movie “Southpaw.” In the meantime, fans will just have to make do with the reissue of the “The Marshall Mathers LP.”
