The Eminem Show


About The Eminem Show

The Eminem Show is the fourth studio album by American rapper Eminem, released on May 26, 2002 by Aftermath Entertainment, Shady Records, and Interscope Records. The album also saw Eminem take a substantially more predominant production role; most of it was self-produced. Predominantly hip hop based, Eminem incorporated a heavier use of rock elements than his previous records. Dr. Dre was the album's executive producer. Due to its less comedic and shock factor lyrical approach, The Eminem Show is regarded as Eminem's most personal album and "revealing Marshall Mathers" for the first time. The Eminem Show was originally scheduled for release on June 4, 2002; however, pirated and bootlegged copies appeared online via peer-to-peer networks. Interscope Records decided to release the album earlier than planned, on May 28 to prevent bootlegging. However, many stores in the United States began selling it even earlier than the new release date on Sunday, May 26. Promotional posters in stores read, "America Couldn't Wait". A week before the album's release, it was the second-most played CD on computers, the highest ranking ever for an unreleased album.
