Eminem hinted that something new would drop soon, revealed to be ‘Mom’s Spaghetti’ sauce in a jar, leaving fans disappointed as they were expecting new music.
After teasing on social media that something new was in the works, Eminem unveiled the release of Mom’s Spaghetti sauce — in a jar, and not on a sweater, thankfully. The sauce, which will be available later this week, pays homage to his 2002 hit, “Lose Yourself,” and the “mom’s spaghetti” memes that permeated the internet in the years that followed.
But the rapper’s fans were disappointed that the new release wasn’t any new music, and they weren’t shy about letting him know in the comments: “Marshall, the sauce we really want is the album,” wrote one. “Bro dropping sauces instead of an album,” commented another. “Drop the bomb tracks tho, Marshall,” said a third.
The Rap God’s last release was “Music To Be Murdered By” in 2020, his eleventh studio album, which featured appearances by Royce da 5’9”, Don Toliver, Ed Sheeran, the late Juice WRLD, and many more. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, although it received mixed reviews from fans and critics.
Eminem became one of the highest-selling artists of all time, according to data from ChartMasters, surpassing Led Zeppelin after achieving over 207.26 million total sales, combining album sales, singles, and streaming data. He is the only rapper in the Top 40, with Drake coming the closest at No. 41, with over 120 million sales. Kanye and Tupac are the only other hip-hop artists in the Top 100, at No. 61 (98 million) and No. 73 (84 million) respectively.
Among his other recent accolades, the Detroit native became the most certified artist in RIAA history last year, with 227.5 million gold and platinum certifications, as well as the most diamond certifications in hip-hop.
