Will the real Slim Shady’s true motivation please stand up?

Yesterday, subscribers of Eminem‘s YouTube account were alerted to new music being uploaded, only to discover what one would consider a strong deviation from Mr. Mathers’ typical output.

Titled “The Real Slim Shady” and listing a credit to “PhilipJones16,” the track sounds like pure smooth jazz. There’s lots of sax, and no lyrics – whereas on the typical Em song those ratios are completely flipped.

Em’s no stranger to cryptic roll-outs. While 2018’s Kamikaze came out as a complete surprise, 2017’s Revival came with a months long campaign for a fictitious anti-depressant that shared the album’s name.

What do you think the upload means?
