Eminem fans have been looking forward to the drop of a new album for a long time now, and late Wednesday (October 25), they may have gotten their first promising beacon of hope via a somehow opaque Instagram post.
Em's longtime manager Paul Rosenberg uploaded a pic of the new Yelawolf album (on CD!) called Trial By Fire, ostensibly hyping it before Friday's release. But fans were more interested in what's in the background: a strategically placed advertisement for what looks to be a pharmaceutical drug called Revival.
Beyond that, a website for Revival exists showing an image that implies the drug could be taken via ear and that it works better than a "bullshit placebo." There's a phone number listed, too: 1-833-2GET-REV. (Call it for a surprise.)
And of course, there's the fact that two of Em's previous albums are titled Relapse and Recovery. Revival would thematically make sense as a related entry.
Em popped back up earlier this month for his furious BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher, in which he called out Donald Trump's endless hypocrisy and genuine despicableness, and via a guest verse on P!nk's song "Revenge." Hey, that's another "re-" word.
