Eminem and Kanye West are BOTH expected to drop new albums this summer... rumors suggest that new Slim Shady music will debut on July 2 (or sometime around then), and the release date for Yeezy's sixth studio album "Yeezus" falls on June 18. So the big question remains, which fresh rap beats are fans more looking forward to this summer - Eminem or Kanye? Read on for more deets and be sure to take the Mstars poll below!
Few details surrounding this summer's new Shady and Yeezy music are available online (neither rapper has released an "official" tracklist, and the name for Em's eighth studio album is still unknown). But here's some fun-facts Mstars managed to gather up to keep anxious fans somewhat pacified:
So basically, here's what fans need to know:
Eminem will kick-off a mini-tour in Europe this August. Paul Rosenberg promises that new music is in the works and that fresh Slim Shady tunes will likely drop sometime after Memorial Day. Rumors suggest that Em might wait until protege Skylar Grey releases HER new album on July 9. Rap videos by Slim Shady "wannabe" Denace have since gone viral on the web, but such song "leaks" are NOT the real Eminem. The "Without Me" superstar has yet to comment on such "new album" rumors.
Kanye West's new album will also feature appearances by Chief Keef, Frank Ocean, John Legend, Travi$ Scott, and Tyler, the Creator among several others artists. Over the weekend, Yeezy CONFIRMED that the record will drop on June 18. Here's the official album cover:
And Twitter fans can't wait for two of the summer's hottest rap releases:
@lukeburns77:"Eminem needs to drop his new album already. I need some new marshall in my life!"
@Alookie125: "Eminem's new album needs to make its way to my hands already."
@DavidMayoo: "Eminem new album will be legendary. Callin' it."
@iDanceForGaga: "Kanye West new album in 2 weeeeeeeeeeeeks!"
NO new songs featuring Eminem have leaked online, although Dr. Dre and Shady Records president Paul Rosenberg "promise" that the fresh 2013 beats are awesome. Meanwhile, West debuted two of his new tracks on a recent episode of SNL:
So, there's all the facts for now. Which new rap album are fans more excited for this summer?
FYI... rumors have it this MIGHT be a leaked track from Em's new album... if it's legit remains unconfirmed:
