Eminem's third studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP, turned 20 on Saturday, May 23rd, and to celebrate, the hip hop heavyweight has blessed his fans with a ton of exciting surprises, including a listening party taking place next week. Em announced the special event on Twitter, quoting a lyric from one of the album's tracks, "I'm Back," along with a visual set to "The Way I Am."
"'I used to give a fuck / now I could give a fuck less,'" he wrote. "Stan drop, Listening party and I got a new number. Hit the site for more info on the 20th Anniversary of The Marshall Mathers LP.”

The website also informs fans that the listening party will be taking place next Wednesday (May 27th), although an exact time has not yet been specified.
