Eminem’s ‘Curtain Call 2’ album cover roasted online

Eminem’s latest greatest hits album is causing a stir almost a month before its release date.

Following up on 2005’s ‘Curtain Call’, his latest compilation will highlight his work from 2009 to present and will be released on August 5th.

Fans will recognize numerous references to his past album artwork on the cover of Curtain Call 2, including the fighter jet from Kamikaze, the devil horns from The Marshall Mathers LP 2, and buildings from his hometown of Detroit, among others.

But a closer look reveals the kind of childish jokes that have made the 49-year-old rapper an easy target for criticism in recent years. Flip the cover over and the numbers reveal crude calculator jokes: “558008” becomes “BOOBSS”. Wrap it all together in a clumsily colored pinball-themed cover and you’ve got the latest Eminem-themed Twitter fodder for the day.

“This has to compete with some of the worst album covers,” said one user wrote.

“As an Eminem fan, I can say that the Donda album cover is better than the Curtain Call 2 album cover,” another wrote, which refers to the plain black square Kanye West used as his “Donda” cover art. “I’m sorry, it is what it is.”

On June 24, Eminem teamed up with Snoop Dogg for “From the D 2 the LBC,” which sees the pair riffing their hometowns of Detroit and Long Beach to pounding drums. The week before, he hopped onto the “Elvis” biopic soundtrack and teamed up with CeeLo Green on “The King and I.”

Both new songs will be included on Curtain Call 2 along with a previously unreleased track.
