Eminem shared that he will drop a new album titled The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grace), releasing a trailer to share the news. Eminem, 51, first introduced the world to his alter-ego, Slim Shady, on an EP in 1997, and further explored the personality on The Slim Shady LP in 1999.

In the short trailer reveal, a reporter says: “Through his complex and oft-criticized, tongue-twisting rhymes, the anti-hero known as Slim Shady has had no shortage of enemies. The same rude lyrics and controversial antics may have ultimately led to his demise. Join me as we recreate the events that led to the murder of Slim Shady.” Em’s longtime friend and collaborator 50 Cent also makes an appearance in the clip, stating: “He’s not a friend, he’s a psychopath.”

The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grace) is due out this summer, and will serve as the follow-up to 2020’s Music to Be Murdered By.
