Eminem Hints At 'Big News' On Twitter

Eminem makes a rare tweet promising big news - but what could it be?

n a rare instance of Twitter activity, Eminem announced on his account that "Some big news is coming. Soon."

The accouncement took place on Monday (March 29), and did not contain any further details.

The timing coincides with recent speculation that Eminem's mentor, legendary producer Dr. Dre, will be releasing a single with Jay-Z for his long-anticipated album, Detox.

The news could also be regarding Eminem's upcoming album, Relapse 2, which was originally promised last year, but was delayed when Em decided he wanted to go back into the studio and go in a "more emotionally driven" direction.

Em did share some details about how he spends his free time, though, as he also tweeted his new high score on a Donkey Kong arcade game: 465,800.

    5 or 7 years? The fuck you talkin about? But anyway I was the biggest Em fan from 99-03....i really hope he gets back to that gradual progression he had back then

  • Six9

    Man I don't even care when that shit comes out...It was supposed to come out like 5 or 7 years ago...4ize album might be my next purchase

  • defjeff

    wow so many people have posted garbage i dont know what to say first. joe budden is amazing. best lyricist out right now. royce is too hit or miss. its either great or just plain corny. He has been a lot better though since sloughterhouse though. and other songs to list for em's diversity (murder murder). one of the best rap songs ever in my opinion in his way to tell an entire story, make it entertaining and funny with great word play. & b.o.b has to be diverse to make up for his shitty average ass raps he writes. he sounds whiter than em does. i dunno. i am impressed with his donkey kong score though.

  • nate1212

    yea actuall think outside the box i kno a close friend of em’s and he said something to me about eminem found a white rapper from michigan and he is only 18 years old and sick as fuck hes like how eminem is when eminem kills his verse but he does it on every track u never in ur right mind wouldve thought of em signing a white rapper but here we are people its reality now just enjoy

  • allyallstupid

    em's last 3 albums SUCKED. why does the best rapper make GARBAGE ALBUMS.

    • ...

      Last 3 albums sucked? Who are you kidding. Most people didnt like Relapse even though he was more lyrical then hes ever been, and his other albums were if not classic very much near it.

    • Jdawgydawg

      ok first of all...you said three that means you were saying the eminem show sucked which is just bull shit

    • No, you're stupid

      You're a fucking disgrace to true hip-hop fans

  • Detox2011

  • Consider this!

    Eminem's discography is multifarious, encompassing a wide-array of songs that explore a cornucopia of styles. While Eminem is undoubtedly known for his horrorcore approach to certain songs, it's erroneous to say that he's restricted or limited as an artist. In "The Marshall Mathers LP," and more noticeably in "The Eminem Show," Eminem delves into his own life, the plight and privation he had to supplant to make it into the industry, and also the precarious predicaments that manifested as a result of his precipitous rise to stardom. If you don't like Eminem's style, I can at least understand your vantage point. But to say that Eminem's discography is weak, or that it lacks diversity is beyond fallacious. He's actually one of the last rappers remaining who is cognizant of what it takes to make a good album (i.e - the implementation of themes). If he's not in your top five, that's fine, but substantiate your opinion in a better way.

    • b_lett

      Actually, my favorite rapper is B.o.B, who I believe to be more versatile than Eminem. B.o.B produces, raps, sings, plays guitar, drums, piano, cello, trumpet and more. He can do rock, rap, electronica, funk, du wop, serenades for the ladies, anything really. Believe me, I'm a huge fan of Eminem, he's my 2nd favorite artist. I can't wait to hear the Eminem/B.o.B collaboration because I think they are two of the most talented hip hop artists in the game right now.

    • Drucifer1983

      Well put, 100% co-sign People complain about Em cause there tired of seeing him on top, so they make up fake reasons to justify there argument..... He has no content, lol, what a joke, Em is more versitile then most of the cats who ever rapped.............From Horror-core, To emotional, to comedy, to Backpacker/Underground, to Club tracks, story-telling joints etc etc...... Em has more versatility than your favrite rapper

    ya...what "Consider this" said.

  • wtharri2

    em is better than royce...no question...there is no one in detroit better...if they were, they would make it into the industry...you have to be a damn idiot to think that anyone in that city is better than em

  • b_lett

    We all know the big news is the upcoming Eminem/B.o.B collaboration.

  • MusicFiend

    No matter if it's Detox, Relapse 2 or SH signing to Shady Records or whatever I'm sure it'll be dope.

  • avillalobos

    ive never heard someone try so hard to sound smart without a hint of success. I wish i knew what you were talking about so i can respond....

  • avillalobos

    @ gynecologist Not all that? Right, nothing to say. He didn't make a song called "Lose Yourself" that is probably the best song ever created describing the feeling an MC gets before hitting the stage and taking that leap showing your skill. He also didn't produce and pen two verses on "Renegade" in which he ate Jay-Z and described the pressures of being such a rap icon. He also didn't do "Stan" which he raps about a way too obsessed fan. He also didn't do "White America" in which he raps about the stereotypes of being a white rapper and his success in a mostly black dominated industry. He also hasn't done numerous heartfelt songs to his daughter....ya, nothing to say. Great point.

    • HRCMS

      The above songs proves Em's ability to make songs with diverse subject matter, and meaningful profound lyrics, the songs above are what tip the scale in Ems favor when arguing about who the best lyricist, or the g.o.a.t.

  • avillalobos

    @ Mr Gimik Your an idiot. Royce is a monster, absolute beast but c'mon...better than Em? I don't care where your from, there is not one thing that Royce can do better than Em. Industry fire? Fire is fire, Em's catalogue is enough to squash anybody's. One thing that Royce can do better...I'll wait. And whoever said Pacewon is better, please go take your Med's.

    • LifetimesofSC

      catalogue? Lets' push things forward...haha douchebag. you spelling like your international but you as globalized as em's old trailer..so please mobilize. Euroanobody.

  • Rapologist

    Nobody is a better rapper than Eminem. He'll do anybody like he did them in 8 Mile.. Just like they said on XM Radio, "Tiger took golf, Shady took rap.. get over it."

      @LIFETIMESOFSC "you couldnt determine the orgins of a beat" I know more music history, within hiphop and outside of hiphop than you probably do " you prolly dunno the Firm clique. thought so. end argument. " mothafucka Nas is my favorite rapper, who do you think your talking to. You're makin some wild assumptions based on my opinion of Eminem which makes me think you are a Stan who got emotional over my post. you did see that i said he was top 10 right Stanley?

    • LifetimesofSC

      rap is like a sport but keep the two separate. you couldnt determine the orgins of a beat. Em been freestyling over the Firm instrumentals, etc. but today's fans are not aware of yesterday's soundscams. you prolly dunno the Firm clique. thought so. end argument. plus what makes em special his the underdog variable. so when a white rap fan wants to be a playa chances are they will remain a dick ryder. Plus how many rappers you know that battle in the underground scene at a REAL city. not some talent show shit. know your place.

    • gynecologist

      nah, Em is top 10 undeniably but he aint all that. he'll take most anyone in terms of battle rapping like 8 mile. his discography tho... not so much. very hit or miss. plus ill lyrical skill in terms of rhyming but no lyrical content, nothing to say. how long can we listen to him rhyme about rape & incest in different ways?

  • mr. gimik

    royce is better then eminem. real talk. im from detroit. royce is real fire. eminem is industry fire. im sick of em. theres way to many rappers from detroit that are shades above shady n wont ever get their jus do. whatever though bigups to royce n slaughterhouse. hopefully they dont get obied stat quoed or cashisd tho.

    • Chris S

      what can Royce (or any rapper ever for that matter) do better than Eminem? i'm from suburban detroit, and i think Royce is an absolute beast. probably top 5 rapper at this exact moment. his flow and rhyming skills are amazing. but in reality, he can't hold a candle to Slim.

    • c/gaddic

      You obviously are true hip-hop head that embraces the crazy unheard talent underground But saying Royce is better than Em is a little carried away Okay Royce is doper punchline for punchline But Eminem's wordplay is out of this world did you even listened to the lyrics on Relapse Em is on a major he needs to make hits and do good numbers Don't hate none of Royce's albums can't even go toe to toe with Em's two first classics! We all know Nickel's an underrated talented rapper but Don't overate him!!!

    • JasonCTown

      Pacewon IS dope....that Pacewon and Mr. Green album is tight.

    • LifetimesofSC

      bad meets evil. ok. Pacewon is better than Eminem. Hence why Pacewon called himself, ''low down and shifty'' half a decade b4 em did. Em really stole his style and ran with it. i know rap. irap. stat quo is gone. obie who? exactly...obie aint on mixtapes and is no longer material in the rap game. cashis? i rather hear trick trick's shitty ass lyrics. i hate joe budden..pump pump it up. he you tubes videoes and argues about top MCs in the game. who does that? The south is took over.

  • YOUAJOKE

    Royce said Em dont have twitter so I guess its somebody from Interscope doing it

  • spitfire

    The news is... that there is some big news coming soon???? WTF

  • Drucifer1983

    If you listen to the new Royce/Bun B/Crooked Track that dropped a few hours ago, Royce makes it pretty clear that he's signing with Em "rom now on, every time you see the whiteboy, you gonna see me" "Shaaadyyyy..........Dont that sound great comn from me" and some other shit, only thing I'm not clear on is whether or not its Royce solo or the whole Slaughterhouse that signed..........Expect an official statement by the end of the week

    • YOUAJOKE

      I would guess its all them because both Budden & Ortiz been taking shots at E1 for stopping them signing with Shady.I would mind if it was Royce but I think all 4 of them are crazy and deserve a chance to bring back rap. Shady, Slaughterhouse, Dre & even 50/G-Unit.... niggas better watch out

  • moh112
