Eminem announces his “Curtain Fall”

The rapper fuels speculation over his retirement.
Eminem has fuelled speculation that he plans to retire by announcing the release of a career retrospective.

The greatest hits collection ‘Curtain Call’ is set to be released on December 5, and will feature “at least two” new songs in addition to hits such as ‘Stan’, ‘The Way I Am’, ‘My Name Is’ and ‘Lose Yourself’, according to the his Aftermath/Interscope label.

The star has reportedly been working on the album since early summer.
According to Billboard, Eminem said: “I have some songs that a lot of people like. I have some songs that only I like. This album is obviously for the ‘lot’ of people.”

The Detroit Free Press published an article earlier this summer claiming that the rapper would retire after his Anger Management tour with 50 Cent and that 2004’s ‘Encore’ would likely be his last LP.

Eminem was forced to cancel the end of the tour to seek treatment for an addiction to sleep medication.

At the time of the rumours regarding the rapper’s future, a source told Billboard: “‘Encore’ was the close of the first chapter in his career. Beyond that, who knows?”

The star is continuing to work out of the spotlight, including producing Redman upcoming album ‘Red Gone Wild’. The track ‘I C Dead People’ features raps from the late artists, Big Pun, Big L and Notorious BIG.
