Eminem's new album will be more about the past than the present.
"ShadyXV," which the Oakland County-based rapper announced via a trailer for the upcoming Denzel Washington film "The Equalizer" during Sunday night's (Aug. 24) MTV Video Music Awards, will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Shady Records label Eminem co-founded with his manager, Paul Rosenberg. The two-CD set comes out on Nov. 24 and will feature tracks such as the Academy and Grammy Award-winning "Lose Yourself" from the "8 Mile" film soundtrack, 50 Cent's "In Da Club" and material by Eminem's group D-12, his Bad Meets Evil collaboration with fellow Detroit rapper Royce da 5' 9", Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf, Obie Trice and more. There will also be "special guest-artist collaborations" that have not yet been revealed.
"ShadyXV" is preceded by a new single from Eminem, "Guts Over Fear" with Sia, which will be the end credits song for "The Equalizer." The song also accompanies the film trailer and has been released as a single for iTunes.
"ShadyXV" is the label's second compilation, following 2006's platinum "Eminem Presents: The Re-Up," which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
