Rapper Eminem has started work on his memoirs which will be published later this year, it has been claimed.
Has been keeping himself low profile these days, Eminem is back on the spotlight with a plan to publish exclusive memoirs. The rap icon has started working on his memoirs and will have the first set published later this year.
Is still prepping his fifth studio album tentatively titled "King Mathers," Em is having his highly anticipated memoirs, to be titled "The Way I Am", published by British publishing distributor Orion Publishing Group on October 16 later this year. In it the rap star will share his journal notes, drawings, hand-drawn art and lyric sketches and other unseen photos as well as a narrative and introduction he himself has written.
Speaking on Eminem's tome, Commissioning editor of Orion Books, Ian Preece, said "Everyone has their own take on Eminem. Because of where he is from, people think they know where he is at, what kind of person he really is. This book cuts through all that and gets to the source." Ian, furthermore, added that he believed Em's memoirs will be one of the books of the year.
"The Way I Am" itself actually is Eminem's second single from his 2000 album "The Marshall Mathers LP" which was chosen by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 Greatest Albums of All Time.
