Just when you thought the vintage audio fad peaked comes news that legendary rapper Eminem has issued a re-release of his “The Eminem Show” album on cassette tape. This is the third album to get the re-issue – he did a similar re-release for the anniversary’s of his debut The Slim Shady LP, and the certified classic The Marshall Mathers LP.
The Eminem Show was first released in 2002 making this year the 15th anniversary of the album. The cassette tape will be bundled with shirts and signed posters. The poster bundle is said to be available for $30 while the t-shirt bundle is $35. Unfortunately the bundles with both t-shirt and poster, and the bundle with the t-shirt and autographed poster have already sold out.
The offer for any bundle will expire on June 3 and shipping will take place 4-6 weeks later.

The site still has twenty-two days left to go.
