Following a week of rumors, Eminem makes it official by unleashing Side B, the deluxe edition of Music to Be Murdered By. The album contains the original 20 songs, plus 16 brand new tracks, with appearances from Dr. Dre, Ty Dolla $ign, Skylar Grey, White Gold, and DJ Premier.
“Uncle Alfred heard you screaming for more… enjoy Side B,” tweeted Em after Friday’s surprise drop.

Along with the album, he has released a video for “GNAT,” directed by Cole Bennett. Dressed in a yellow hazmat suit, Em sprays a bottle of Lysol while dropping coronavirus-inspired bars before taking a bite out of a bat.
“See these bars are like COVID, you get them right off the bat,” he raps over the d.a. got that dope production. “And it goes from Marshall to human, that’s how the virus attacks / They come at me with machine guns / It’s like tryin’ to fight off a GNAT.”
The original Music to Be Murdered By was released without warning back in January featuring Juice WRLD, Anderson .Paak, Young M.A, Don Toliver, Royce da 5’9″, and more.
Shady has been keeping a low profile, but earlier this month, he made a surprise cameo in “SNL’s” parody of “Stan” starring Pete Davidson.
