Eminem has announced his 2013 return to the game via a Detroit Tigers-inspired cap on his website. Em’s online shop is selling a snapback featuring a backwards E on the front, with a list of years on the side “dedicated to the landmark Eminem solo albums.” And not only does that panel include the year 1996 for his largely ignored debut album Infinite, but it also lists 2013. Which means Shady’s follow-up to 2010′s Recovery is on the way.
Earlier this year, Em confirmed he had begun working on his next album. Since releasing the disappointing Relapse in 2009, the Detroit rapper has rejuvenated his career by getting a little bit more serious and ditching some of his Shady shtick. Recovery was a return to form which earned him two Grammys and a chart-topping single, and in 2011 he released the gritty Hell: The Sequel with Royce Da 5’9” under their moniker Bad Meets Evil.
