Once fans migrate over to Em’s website, they’re greeted with the telephone number — 313-666-7440 — and instructed to text “Eminem’s number” to get first access to MMLP20 music and anniversary collections “later this year.”
Handwritten lyrics on scraps of notebook paper are prominently displayed beside it.
As for the listening party, it all goes down on Wednesday (May 27) and Slim Shady will be answering fan questions in the live chat, but the start time is “TBA.”
Other 20th anniversary goodies include newly remastered videos from the MMLP era, including “The Real Slim Shady,” The Way I Am” and both the long and short versions of “Stan” featuring Dido.
