EMINEM: New Album “Relapse” Finally Drops Today

Eminem's Relapse finally drops on May 19th.

Eminem's new CD "Relapse"in stores on Tuesday May 19th.

The stepfather-homosexual-incest-rape thing aside, Relapse seems worth the wait. It’s been nearly 5 years since Eminem went off the music grid—an absence he is attributing to his pharmaceutical addiction. Primarily Valium and painkillers.

“I fall in bed with a bottle of meds and a Heath Ledger bobblehead”

The tracks on this one take me back to Eminem’s early major-label releases The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP, in 1999 and 2000 respectively. Em is best when he turns the pen on himself, and he doesn’t disappoint on Relapse.

This latest album reads like a lyrical memoir of pharmaddiction. Highly recommended.
