The new version comes with some unreleased tracks, and previously leaked tracks. The edition also contains live performances from 1999 to 2001, along with instrumentals of some of the hits from the album.
Paul Rosenberg, Eminem’s longtime manager shares some details about the unreleased song “Jimmy, Brian and Mike”, which was scrapped from “The Marshall Mathers LP”. “20 short years ago today we released Eminem’s third Aftermath/Interscope album THE EMINEM SHOW! There was a song that Proof and Denaun Porter always loved and begged Em to release, called “Jimmy, Brian and Mike” that for whatever reason he just never finished beyond demo stages. A couple months ago for this EXPANDED EDITION release Em went back to the lab, recalled the sessions, finished the chorus and put the touches on it so that it could be included in the Bonus Tracks added to the album – along with some previously unavailable for streaming gems like “Stimulate”, freestyles, instrumentals and live performances including Eminem’s legendary first headline NYC show at Tramp’s and others. Please sit back and enjoy the show,” he wrote.
