As early as last year, there was speculation about a few veterans releasing new albums in 2013. Eminem was among the artists speculated to have something new in the works and it turns out the speculation was right. At the end of the summer, Eminem returned with his announcement of The Marshall Mathers LP 2.
Eminem has already begun the promotion of his new album and he is working with a reinvigorated Rick Rubin. Earlier this year, Rick Rubin also helped Kanye West with the creation of Yeezus. But, with the year coming to a conclusion, Eminem will release the biggest album of the year.
