Eminem just announced that he’s dropping an album of his greatest hits.

Get your speakers ready because Slim Shady has just made everyone’s summer.

The iconic rapper took to Twitter to share the follow-up to his 2005 compilation album: Curtain Call.

Our new favourite album is set to drop on 5 August and is imaginatively named Curtain Call 2.

The album will feature hit songs from the artist’s previous releases, including RelapseRecovery, Marshall Mathers LP 2, Revival, Kamikaze and Music to be Murdered By.

Naturally, people were freaking out, with one calling the release a ‘masterclass’, while another said got us even more excited, adding: “It comes out in less than 30 days man.”

With a third chiming in to say: “Eminem dropping album, I’m stopping my whole world on Aug 5th. This is PRIORITY ONE!”

With the rapper telling VIBE that he wasn’t sure ‘how much longer [he had] in [the] game.’

He went on to add: “I’m always going to love hip-hop. But how much longer am I going to still do it? I couldn’t really give you an answer. But the day that this is not better than the last will probably be the day I stop.

“I do love it so much. But even if I was rapping at 50 [years old], I don’t know if I would put it out. I know it always makes me feel better to lay things to tape, and—’Lay the tape.’

“See, I’m old school. The fans might say the s**t is garbage. You don’t how long people are going to want you around […] Realistically, if I don’t rap, what the **** am I going to do? It’s too late to just be un-famous right now at this point.”

The rapper went on to joke that he ‘hope[s]’ he doesn’t need the money to have to keep going, but went on to say he doesn’t consider himself a star.

He said: “I don’t consider myself a star. Obviously, I know I’m a celebrity but I don’t look at myself in that light. I’m just me, man. It’s one of the reasons that I stay here [in Detroit].

“I don’t want the attention. I don’t like the attention. I don’t like all that shit. Yes, I love the respect and the admiration that some people show me but I don’t thrive off that whole thing.”
