Eminem sprung a surprise on fans this week with the arrival of ‘Music To Be Murdered By: Side B.’
The rapper’s eleventh LP serves as an expansion of the like-titled release, which arrived in January.
Comprised of 16 additional tracks, the set features appearances from Ty Dolla $ign, DJ Premier, Skylar Grey, Dr. Dre, and more.
With the surprise ‘Kamikaze’ back in 2018, it’s clear Slim Shady has a penchant for the unannounced.

While solid, it doesn’t look like it’ll be enough to snatch the top spot from Taylor Swift, whose ‘Evermore’ is set for another week at #1 with over 100k.
Still, decent for what effectively functions as an expansion pack of tracks.
