However, the video took an unexpected turn when it transitioned to a page displaying an unannounced Eminem album for the year 2024. Just as fans’ anticipation reached its peak, a simulated explosion filled the screen, revealing Eminem dressed in a space suit adorned with the word “Infinite.”

The final reveal showcased the album cover for ‘Even More…Infinite,’ a clever homage to Eminem’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Infinite’ from 1996. The caption “Out Now♾️” further fueled the illusion, creating a playful yet tantalising atmosphere for fans eagerly awaiting new music from the rap icon.

While the prank left fans wanting more, it also entertained them with Eminem’s signature humour and creativity. This stunt wasn’t entirely out of the blue Dr. Dre confirmed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that Eminem’s 12th studio album is indeed in the works and scheduled for release “this year.” 

Although specific details remain under wraps, fans can anticipate new music from Eminem shortly, adding to the excitement and speculation within the hip-hop community.
