Eminem’s newest album, Shady XV, is due out November 24th and in advance of the release – and to celebrate Shady Records’15th birthday – he has released a short titled “Birthday Clown” as part of a video series to promote the new album.
The 30-second black and white animated short was released on Facebook and features a juggling clown. Knowing Eminem, you can expect things don’t exactly turn out to well. In the post he goes on to mention “more coming soon”, indicating there are more videos – in what he is calling Shady XV Quinceañera – on the way.
WARNING: the video below isn’t for everyone and viewer discretion is advised.
Shady XV is due out later this month and the two-disc album will feature 12 new tracks on the first disc, and the second will be a greatest hits compilation from the Shady Records label. New tracks from D12, Slaughterhouse, and Eminem – including his recently released “Guts Over Fear” – will appear on the album. The second disc will include fan favorites such as 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” and Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”.
