Saturday 1am ET: Feature LP: Eminem – Music To Be Murdered By (2020)

Music to Be Murdered By (stylized as MUSIC TO BE MURDERƎD BY) is the eleventh studio album by American rapper Eminem, released on January 17, 2020, by Aftermath Entertainment, Interscope Records and Shady Records with no prior announcement, similarly to his previous album Kamikaze (2018). The album was produced by Eminem and Dr. Dre, amongst other producers, and features collaborations with Black Thought, Q-Tip, Juice Wrld, Ed Sheeran, Young M.A, Skylar Grey, Don Toliver, Anderson .Paak, Royce da 5’9″, Kxng Crooked and Joell Ortiz among others.

The album is dedicated to Juice Wrld and Eminem’s deceased former bodyguard CeeAaqil Allah Barnes. The album’s title, cover art and concept are inspired by the Alfred Hitchcock and Jeff Alexander 1958 spoken word album Alfred Hitchcock Presents Music to Be Murdered By. Alongside the album’s surprise release, Eminem also released the music video for “Darkness”, which revolves around the 2017 Las Vegas shooting from the point of view of the perpetrator Stephen Paddock alternating with Eminem’s own.

The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 279,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. Subsequently, Eminem became the first artist to have ten consecutive albums debut at number one in the US and one of six artists to have released at least ten US number-one albums. Music critics praised Eminem’s lyrical abilities and the improved production after Kamikaze, while criticism directed towards the album’s formulaic song structure, lack of innovation and shock value.

Music to Be Murdered By is among Eminem’s most controversial albums. The Mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham, responded to Eminem making light of the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing, saying, “This is unnecessarily hurtful and deeply disrespectful to the families and all those affected.” The criticism of the album’s subject matter led to Eminem responding in an open letter, saying that Music to Be Murdered By is “not for the squeamish” and is “designed to shock the conscience.”

Thursday 5pm ET: Feature Artist – Eminem

Marshall Bruce Mathers III (born October 17, 1972), known professionally as Eminem, is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, record executive, film producer, and actor. He is consistently cited as one of the greatest and most influential rappers of all time and was labeled the “King of Hip Hop” by Rolling Stone magazine. In addition to his solo career, Eminem was a member of the hip hop group D12. He is also known for his collaborations with fellow Detroit-based rapper Royce da 5’9″; the two are collectively known as Bad Meets Evil.

After his debut album Infinite (1996) and the extended play Slim Shady EP (1997), Eminem signed with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment and subsequently achieved mainstream popularity in 1999 with The Slim Shady LP, which earned him his first Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. His next two releases, 2000’s The Marshall Mathers LP and 2002’s The Eminem Show, were worldwide successes, with each being certified diamond in U.S. sales and both winning Best Rap Album Grammy Awards—making Eminem the first artist to win the award for three consecutive LPs. They were followed by Encore in 2004, which was another commercial success, but did not receive the amount of critical success his previous albums had received. Eminem went on hiatus after touring in 2005 partly due to a prescription drug addiction. He released Relapse in 2009 and Recovery in 2010. Both won Grammy Awards for Best Rap Album and Recovery was the best-selling album of 2010 worldwide, the second time he had the international best-selling album of the year (after The Eminem Show). Eminem’s eighth album, 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, won two Grammy Awards, including Best Rap Album; it expanded his record for the most wins in the category. These were followed by 2017’s Revival and 2018’s Kamikaze, the latter being the best-selling hip hop album of 2018.
