Jul 15 - Em retiring?
 

 
Don't think this has been posted on here yet (I apologize if it has):

DETROIT (Reuters) - Rap superstar Eminem plans to make his last solo performance in Ireland in September, the Detroit Free Press, his hometown newspaper, said on Friday.

Citing sources close to the 33-year-old rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, the daily also said his current album "Encore" would probably be his last as he moves to full-time work as a record producer.

The final solo appearance of Mathers, the best-selling hip-hop artist ever, would be at a concert in Dublin, Ireland, on Sept. 17, the Free Press said.

The newspaper quoted his manager, Paul Rosenberg, as saying no official decision had been made about the future of the Grammy and Oscar-winning artist who has recorded three top-10 albums.

But Rosenberg said Mathers' current multi-platinum album was "certainly the cap on this part of his career."

Mathers' spokesman at Interscope Records in Los Angeles could not immediately be reached for comment.

The Free Press said the rapper, who has sold more than $1 billion worth of records, has grown weary of the media spotlight and may be musically spent.

"Marshall feels he's said everything he can say as Eminem," one insider was quoted as saying. "The idea that he intended this ("Encore") to be his last record is something that everyone on the inside circle has known for a while."

Another source said "Encore," which was released last year, had been an especially difficult record for the artist to make. "Marshall really struggles to write for himself now, to speak through the voice of Eminem," the source said.

"He knows as well as anybody that there comes a point where you risk beating this thing to death."

The cover shot on "Encore" shows Mathers taking a bow, and its closing song is entitled "Curtains Down."

In the album's liner notes, and in his current concert tour, Mathers has also played up the figurative death of Eminem.

"This is how you go out with a bang, baby," Mathers says in one video," after pulling the trigger of a pistol that misfires on himself.

They deleted my post from this morning, (forgot to cut and paste the article) but here is the front page of the Detroit Free Press. They dedicated the front page, and most of Section A of the paper, to this article.

Man, I hope this isn't his last album because it wasen't up to par at all. Didn't he say The Eminem Show was going to be his last album?, hopefully it's just to hype his next one. Plus, I don't like him as a producer.

That's what i was gonna say. this could just be a segway into another persona. cuz remember he was supposed to have a song called the death of eminem with 3 different versions. (i think one with dre one with obie and one with 50) and then he was gonna start a new persona. Paul did say that he said all he could say as eminem.

was thinking the same thing.

I was hopin he put out @ least one more album, to shut all these dudes up that thought he was wack because of his half-assed effort on "Encore."

And he should give something up, I think it should be producing.

He has a much brighter future as a rapper, as opposed to producing. He's too hit or miss to be a full-time producer.
