Eminem Said He Doubted He’d Release Any More Music After Reaching 50

Eminem Said He Doubted He’d Release Any More Music After Reaching 50

Eminem dropped his first single in over a year yesterday, Thursday 16 June. But could this track mark one of his last available to the public?

Well, according to previous comments made by rapper, that could well be the case, as the 49-year-old hinted he may stop putting out music after turning 50 years old. 

In an earlier interview with VIBE, the 'Real Slim Shady' rapper - then 37 years old - admitted he wasn't sure 'how much longer [he had] in [the] game'.

He said: "I’m always going to love hip-hop. But how much longer am I going to still do it? I couldn’t really give you an answer. But the day that this is not better than the last will probably be the day I stop.

"I do love it so much. But even if I was rapping at 50 [years old], I don’t know if I would put it out. I know it always makes me feel better to lay things to tape, and—'Lay the tape.'

"See, I’m old school. The fans might say the shit is garbage. You don’t how long people are going to want you around . . . Realistically, if I don’t rap, what the f*ck am I going to do? It’s too late to just be unfamous right now at this point."

Eminem joked that he 'hope[s]' he doesn't need the money to have to keep going. However, he also reflected how he wants to just be 'regular'.

He said: "I don’t consider myself a star. Obviously, I know I’m a celebrity but I don’t look at myself in that light. I’m just me, man. It’s one of the reasons that I stay here [in Detroit].

"I don’t want the attention. I don’t like the attention. I don’t like all that shit. Yes, I love the respect and the admiration that some people show me but I don’t thrive off that whole thing."

Eminem's latest hit 'The King and I' also features 'F**k You' singer CeeLo Green.

The release has been met with widespread excitement from fans, with one dubbing Eminem the 'Rap God'.

Meanwhile, another called for the star to release the album.

However, if Eminem meant what he said in his 2010 interview, then he doesn't have long to get cracking and release what would ultimately be his last publicly available album.

Eminem is currently 49 years old and his birthday is on 17 October, giving him just four months to squeeze out a potential final release.
