Eminem To Release ‘Stan’ Merchandise; Posts Promo Pic on IG [PHOTO]
After dropping nine albums and being in the game for almost two decades, Eminem seems incredibly focused and locked into his career. He's added some new acts to his Shady Records roster in Westside Gunn, Conway and Compton's Boogie. He also performed that scathing Donald Trump diss that folks are still talking about, and it seems he's about to drop a new album as well.
Now, the lyrical legend is offering "Stan" merchandise, inspired by his famous 2000 hit of the same name. Posted on Eminem's Instagram Wednesday (Nov. 1) was a photo of a white hat on a sink with a caption that read: "Stan [n]: An overzealous or obsessive fan of a particular celebrity" - Oxford Dictionary.
The word "stan" was officially added to the Oxford Dictionary back in June. The song, which features Dido, is based on a crazed Eminem fan named "Stan," who is dangerously obsessed with his favorite rapper and commits a horrible crime. The name has become a slang term in the years since.
People can also head to Em's website to fill out a form and get early access to the merch.
Meanwhile, we recently reported that Mr. Shady will be the musical guest on an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live, with Chance The Rapper as host. And 15 years after it's release, we gave the 8 Mile soundtrack a spin and selected five songs that have made an impact and stood the test of time.
Hopefully, we'll get a chance to see more of the "Stan" pieces soon. One would assume there's a chance that Em will rock one when he plays SNL next month.
