Eminem hasn't updated posts on his official Twitter and Facebook pages for weeks... hence, fans still remain in the dark in regards to details surrounding Em's highly-anticipated new 2013 album. An unofficial tracklist off of Slim Shady's alleged new record "Famous" recently leaked online... but whether it's real or not remains a totally mystery (in all honesty, it's probably fake). Eminem's pals Kendrick Lamar and Mr. Porter are the ones currently keeping fans pacified... both rappers were recently spotted hanging out at Em's Detroit studio with fellow members of the Black Hippy Crew. Hmm... is a collaboration in the works?

Eminem DID finally update his Facebook on Thursday (June 6) with this post:
Lamar also posted the photo with:
Kendrick Lamar: "Yesterday in Detroit... K. Dot x Em."
Former D12 rapper (and Slim's current hype man) also posted this on Twitter and Instagram:
(FYI, Mr. Porter also recently tweeted: @MrPorter2012: "That i doubt but who knows RT @master360: @MrPorter2012 do u know if Em will release his new album before the european shows?" So apparently those July 2 release date rumors might not be true...)
Do fans think Em's currently working on new music with the Black Hippy Crew, or did they just stop by his studio to say hi?
And as for those "leaked tracklist" rumors, as Mstars previously reported...
Here's the video "leak" entitled "Eminem Reveals Tracklist of NEW Album ''Famous' 2013." The clip was posted bymcjmusic8 on April 10 and has already garnered thousands of views. When one commenter asks if the video is real, the Slim Shady fan writes, "Yes a student of the new Interscope marketing company had leaked it... interview next week about the album & the leak."
The unofficial (and probably made-up) tracklist is as follows:
1. The Return of Shady (intro.)
2. The Mirror
3. Kim II (featuring Rihanna)
4. Free My Soul
5. Big Proof (skit)
6. We Miss You (featuring D12)
7. Forgive Me
8. Shine Again
9. Paul (skit)
10. Best Rapper Alive
11. Claim my Spot (featuring 50 Cent, Dr. Dre)
12, Every Day
13. Bad Luck
14. Steve on Drugs (skit)
15. Legend (featuring Lil Wayne)
16. Hailie Jade
18. Dead and Gone
19. RIP Slim Shady (skit)
20. Murder Session (featuring Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf, D12, 50 Cent, Cashis, Obie Trice, Jay-Z)
Hmm... good try?
Here are some fan reactions... several aren't falling for it:
Packers86: "This is the worst fake tracklist I've ever seen. F#ck you."
Chorey Henley: "This is stupid lol."
Hayden Holloway: "Lies... It's all lies."
iadriandot1: "whoever is rapping in the background is just f#cking terrible lol."
turd313: "Total bulls#it!!"
Sorry to those fans who were hoping for some REAL Eminem leaks, but all signs point to this tracklist being totally bogus. Some of the listed song names and collaborations are just too suspect.
mcjmusic8: "check the interview next week on this channel with the promotion team of paul rosenberg and you will have your truth."
Yeah... that never happened. And this comment was posted over a month ago.
But if this all IS real... do fans dig it?
Rumors suggest Slim might drop fresh rhymes sometime in July... although it's likely the new album won't be released until late summer-early fall.
Looks like fans will just have to wait and see if any of these "rumors" actually hold-up. For now, It's safe not to trust ANYTHING until it comes from Dr. Dre, Paul Rosenberg, or Eminem himself.
