Eminem Preps Autobiography

Though Eminem is still prepping his fifth studio album tentatively titled King Mathers, he has another current project in store that does not concern the booth; his memoir.

Eminem will share his journal notes, drawings, and other unseen photos in the book Eminem: The Way I Am. He will pen the introduction, along with a narrative for the book that describes the pictures and notes revealed from his personal collection.

The book will be published through Orion Books, a British publishing distributor. Commissioning editor of Orion Books, Ian Preece, spoke of the ordeal with enthusiasm saying it will be one of the better books to come out this year. Not only that, Preece warned of its raw clout. He stated “this book cuts through all that and gets to the source. It has an edge,” when speaking on Eminem's true demeanor.

Though there have been several books written on him, and even a few with contributions from Eminem himself, this is the first one to come out since his “retirement” from the rap game
