Many people have revered Eminem for his lyrics and wordplay, and now it looks like his music and persona will be put under the critical microscope in a new book.

This original treatment will be appreciated by Eminem fans and cultural scholars alike,” according to the book’s description on Amazon.
Scott F. Parker, who’s written ‘Conversations with Ken Kesey’ and ‘Revisted: Notes on Bob Dylan,’ curates the piece, while Talib Kweli provides the foreword.
