He is at home on doctor-mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love." On Saturday, Wayne tweeted, "Thanx for all the prayers! I am good.
Eminem plans to release a new album in 2013...according to a hat the Rapper is selling online. A new ballcap being sold on Eminem's website lists a series of dates on the side of it, "dedicated to the landmark Eminem solo albums. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Marshall Mathers Foundation." The years listed correspond with Em's album releases over the years, but 2013 is listed as well.
