I imagine you knew that Eminem
had a new album (Shady XV
) coming out this week, if not because of all the controversy drummed up by his rap about beating Lana Del Ray then because of all the controversy drummed up by leaked bits of the song "Vegas" (wherein he warns Iggy Azalea that she might not want to blow a rape whistle on him). What you probably did not know, since this seems to have sprung out of the grown, fully grown, is that he was planning to lead into that album with a 66-track mixtape called Shady Classics
. And all of this barely a year after the release of The Marshall Mathers LP 2
Now if only I could get the drat stream to run and give you an opinion on it. Problem is that this stream's less than reliable, probably a result of the sheer number of streams this thing is playing host to. Oh well; see if you have any more luck than I'm having with the stream right below. If you do it should keep you entertained until roughly the time the album releases on Friday.
