Although streaming is the newest form of listening to music, Eminem is taking a (couple) step backwards to release his sophomore album The Slim Shady LP. Yesterday, the Detroit rapper has announced that he’ll be releasing the album through cassette, giving fans the nostalgia of buying the original cassette when the The Slim Shady LP dropped in 1999, which was more a a common way of listening to music along with CD’s. Eminem made the announcement on Instagram, showing the cassette in all of its glory.
The re-release of the Slim Shady LP marks the 17th anniversary of the album, which was soon certified platinum in only three months. Eminem also plans to release exclusive merchandise as well.
