Label: Aftermath, Interscope, Shady
Release Date: TBA

It's hard to have a quiet year when you're the best selling rap artist of all time, but Eminem's 2013 has been pretty low-key. The silence is intriguing, though, as we see his eighth solo album on the Shady/Aftermath release schedule (Paul Rosenberg has also confirmed Em will be dropping an album this year). The last time Em took this kind of time between solo projects, the five years between Encore and Relapse, he returned with a whole different sound. With nothing yet released from the upcoming album, we have no idea which direction Em will take the album in but we're excited to find out. Especially after seeing him in the studio with Chris Rock, Big Sean, and the entire TDE crew.  —Max Goldberg
