Guess who's back, with a beard.
Update: Em has clearly appreciated the beard hype.
Eminem once closed off "Business" by saying he'd be in the game "till we grows beards, get weird and disappear into the mountains." Well, it appears that day has finally arrived.
During the premiere of the Dr. Dre & Jimmy Iovine centric biography The Defiant Ones, Eminem posed for a few pictures sporting a new and rare beard. It's a far cry from his usual manscaping (or lackthereof), and since this is Eminem we're talking about, Stans have been analyzing every last hair follicle for a clue about his next album.
Fred Wreck, Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar.
Dre, Jimmy Iovine, Eminem.
Perhaps the rapper is undergoing a playoff beard-esque ritual, in which he will only shave once his album is finished. Or perhaps his beard represents the new, "grown-man-shit" direction his music has taken. Or maybe he just got lazy and neglected to shave, like so many bearded men before him.
Either way, the Internet have been enjoying Em's new look. Personally, I respect it.
