Eminem Releases Track List & Album Art For ‘MMLP2’
The track list reveals that Rihanna will be featured on a song called “The Monster,” while Kendrick will square off with Em on a song titled, “Love Game.” This will be the first time we hear K.Dot and Slim Shady on a song together, though we have sampled RiRi and Eminem together before, on the 2010 track “Love the Way You Lie.”
MMLP2 will also feature Skylar Grey and fun. lead singer, Nate Reuss.
Along with the track list, Eminem also tweeted the cover art for MMLP2. The front of the album features a photo of his childhood home at 19946 Dresden Street. The photo has looks like it’s been through a serious run in the Instagram dryer, giving it a cool and worn-out, vintage feel. The house itself has boarded up windows and the front lawn seems more like a jungle with all the overgrown grass.
The back cover is a condemned notice that reads “City of Detroit – Danger Keep Out – This Structure on Dresden Street Condemned as Dangerous and Unsafe,” followed by the track list and the executive producers, Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin. It’s great to see Eminem’s cutting humor come out even in his album art. Shady’s definitely still got it!

Eminem has some big shoes to fill if he is aiming for MMLP2 to outdo it’s namesake, the original Marshall Mathers LP, which is his best-selling album to date with 27 million copies sold globally.
MMLP2‘s first single, “Bezerk“, is currently at number 16 on iTunes. We’ll have to wait and see with this album if the real Slim Shady will stand up!
