Believe it or not, Eminem's monster of an album The Eminem Show is 15 years old this year! It was the Detroit rapper's fourth studio album when it was released in 2002, and went on to be his most commercially successful record ever. In addition to being the best-selling album of 2002, it won the Grammy for Best Rap Album, and was ranked #317 on Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. 

To mark the iconic record's 15th anniversary, the rapper has just released four very special anniversary capsules, with each set including a cassette tape of The Eminem Show. Each of the four options are up now for sale on Em's website

The set with the cassette and a poster feature handwritten annotations of the liner notes, including one where Eminem says the album's concept was inspired by the 1998 Jim Carrey movie The Truman Show and the album artwork was inspired by Carrey's 1999 movie The Man on the Moon. A second set available includes the cassette and a T-shirt.  

Meanwhile, Eminem also recently made headlines by helping to raise over $2 million dollars for the Manchester terror attack victims. While the rapper isn't normally very active on social media, a tweet following the attacks outside an Ariana Grande concert in England to Em's 21 million followers linked to a crowd-funding page that was subsequently flooded with donations.
