You Won’t Believe How Eminem Is Re-Releasing “The Slim Shady EP”


(AllHipHop News) Although streaming is the newest form of listening to music, Eminem is taking a (couple) step backwards to release his sophomore album The Slim Shady LP. Yesterday, the Detroit rapper has announced that he’ll be releasing the album through cassette, giving fans the nostalgia of buying the original cassette when the The Slim Shady LP dropped in 1999, which was more a a common way of listening to music along with CD’s. Eminem made the announcement on Instagram, showing the cassette in all of its glory:


#SSLP Cassette re-issue coming soon. Link in bio for more info.

      • Anthony Mason

        Wahlahhh!!!! (Genie magical effects)

      • hoeyuno

        haha…..Before the Slim Shady LP came out I remember getting a promo copy of it for free at my local hip hop store. Had like 4 half songs on it and prank calls on the other side of the tape. We had no idea he was going to be as big as he is..

      • Anthony Mason

        I recorded “my name is” off the radio onto a tape. Lol! I was instantly hooked soon as I heard it because nobody sounded like him.

      • hoeyuno

        yea the first couple albums were dope but after the third the shock value was gone and he got boring in my opinion…He changed the rap game and white Americas view of rap for a moment…But at the same time I cant stand those fans who hate rap but think Eminems the best thing on earth..

      • Anthony Mason

        I don’t know what it is about him but I have never seen an artist take so many steps back in my life. Why can’t he just get on some good beats and rap like he used to?

        All that complex fast rap s*** he is doing is getting snooooo boring…..

        ha, that joint got the auto reverse…. I had to flip my shit for the longest before I upgraded.

      • hoeyuno

        One of those joints with only the fast forward button!!?? had to flip and guess-tamate the fast forwarding,,haha

      • No auto stop!
        Reminds me of the 1st time I heard a CD in 91/92…I was like:
        “That chet rewind fast as chet!”

        Hahahaha!

  • Papi Peligro

    Yo @vancebrinkley I need for you to talk to AHH about putting together a charity boxing match between me and inmadopebicurious troll. I would like all my proceeds to go to the Trayvon Laws sponsored by the NAACP. Somebody talk to somebody and lets make this happen.

  • remy730
