LOS ANGELES — Rapper Eminem, who recently appeared at the NFL Draft, has announced that his twelfth studio album, ‘The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grace)’, will be released this summer.

A trailer for the album features a true crime reporter discussing the demise of Eminem’s alter ego, Slim Shady.

“Through his complex and oft-criticised, tongue-twisting rhymes, the anti-hero known as Slim Shady has had no shortage of enemies,” he said.

Eminem’s longtime associate 50 Cent also makes a cameo, reports variety.com.

“He’s not a friend, he’s a psychopath,” he says.

The reporter in the video continued, “The same rude lyrics and controversial antics may have ultimately led to his demise. Join me as we recreate the events that led to the murder of Slim Shady.”

Eminem himself makes an appearance and stated: “I knew it was only a matter of time for Slim.”

The rapper surprise-released his previous album, “Music to Be Murdered By,” in January 2020, which quickly soared to the top spot on the Billboard 200 and spawned the hit single ‘Godzilla’ featuring Juice Wrld.

Slim Shady has long served as an alter ego for Eminem, dating back to 1997’s ‘Slim Shady EP’ and ‘The Slim Shady LP’, which arrived two years later.

The character has often been one he’s assumed to deliver his more aggressive and violent lyrics, which have marked him as a controversial rapper since the beginning of his career.
