Back in 2005, Eminem released his greatest hits compilation, Curtain Call: The Hits. The project was filled with his popular singles like “My Name Is,” “Stan,” “Lose Yourself,” “The Real Slim Shady,” and more. Curtain Call: The Hits arrived amid retirement rumors around Eminem as even the rapper himself was unsure of what direction his career would go at the time. As we now know, he returned four years later with Relapse, and the following year he dropped the Grammy-winning Recovery. Almost 17 years after Curtain Call: The Hits, Eminem is ready to release his second greatest hits compilation.
