Eminem Fans Spot Rude Detail In His New Album Cover

The artwork for Eminem's latest album cover has left fans in stitches over a series of hidden, and rather rude, messages.

While some may have been trolling the art for its bold use of colour, others have looked deeper into it and realised some of its concealed - and hilarious - messages.

The rapper may be 49 years old and have previously stated he doubts he'll make any more music once he turns 50, but he's proven he still has the humour of a Year Nine student bored in a Maths class.

If this is his final release, at least he's gone out with a bit of banter.

Now, the biggest excitement when you upgraded to one of those fancy calculators in school was never the fact you could use the symbol for PI or work out the square root of a number, but you were able to write rude messages on your device as you tittered away to your friends.

The unofficial teachings at the back of maths appear to be the lasting messages Eminem took from his school days. Who needs to know pythagoras' theorem in day-to-day life anyway?

A fan of the rapper took to Twitter to point out Eminem's inclusion of the school jokes in his cover, which shows a series of neon calculator numbers. One reads: '800 855' ... which, as everyone who went to a British secondary school knows, is also known as 'boobss'.


"No way Eminem snuck the middle school calculator joke into his Curtain Call 2 album cover," they said.

Fans have been left howling in amusement over the calculator jokes.

"Bro has had the same sense of humor for like 30 years," one said.


Another questioned other's disappointed or confused reactions: "Why are people surprised this is the most Eminem [thing] I've ever seen."


The other neon numbers on the album cover reads: 'A**hol', 'Helish,' 'Hesill' and 'Olg'.


Some fans have questioned whether the lines of calculator code could be the title of songs set to feature on the album.

However, the album is reported as being a compilation of the rapper's best hits, featuring tracks such as 'Relapse' from 2009, 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' from 2013 and 'Kamikaze' (2018).

Although it will include one previously unreleased track.


While it has yet to be confirmed whether the school calculator references are merely jokes or actually hint details about the album, fans are pretty certain about some other easter eggs.

The artwork has been analysed as referring to Eminem's 2018 album Kamikaze with the image of the fighter plane.

From the age of 11, the rapper grew up just out of Detroit, which is referenced with the buildings featured on the right hand side of the cover.

Eminem's pose for the cover has been linked to 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2'. The calculator-style numbers are also set within what appear to be pills, which some fans think points to the inclusion of the tune 'Relapse'.

The record is currently set for release on 5 August, 2022.
