What are Eminem’s ‘Curtain Call 2’ Easter Eggs?

The album cover of “Curtain Call 2” revealed by Eminem features a host of things that all give clues to his previous projects. Since the album is going to be a compilation of some of his greatest hits released after 2009, fans on Reddit guessed the various easter eggs pretty easily. If we talk about the fighter plane featured on the center-left of the cover, it clearly refers to the cover of his 2018 album “Kamikaze”. The buildings spotted right in the center below refer to his native Detroit. Therefore, the song ‘Detroit vs Everybody’ should make a cut in the album. The main image in the middle where Eminem can be seen posing with his hands like devil horns is associated with his “The Marshall Mathers LP 2”.

Eminem holding a shover while digging a grave is an ode to his album titled ‘Music to be Murdered By’ as the ghost appearing in the top right apparently refers to his ‘Bad Meets Evil’s Hell: The Sequel’ CD. The words “Game Over” spotted on the cover may refer to an upcoming diss on rapper The Game. A few on social media also spoke about the numbers spotted on the album cover. While some speculated it was album sales from his previous projects, it turned out it was actually words like “Bobbs”, “Hellish”, and “A**hol”. “. According to several reports, the new album will contain only one unreleased song and the rest of the songs will be from 2009’s ‘Relapse’, 2010’s ‘Recovery’, 2013’s ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’, 2017’s ‘Revival’, ‘Kamikaze’ from 2018′, and ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ and ‘Music to Be Murdered By – Side B (Deluxe Edition)’ from 2020.’

Hip-Hop Fans Decode ‘Curtain Call 2’ Cover Easter Eggs

Social media users quickly took to Reddit to decode the easter eggs, as one user said, “The Revival reference is in the way the title is written. Also, these stars that represent America. Always a Revival reference. While another posted, “The ghost is Bad Meets Evil CD.” The next said: “I think the pills the numbers are on are meant to represent relapse.” And, another added: “The one in town is Recovery without a doubt.”

One Reddit user posted, “The ghost thing being old Eminem could also apply to any other old Eminem album. So that’s a weird explanation for it being a reference for Relapse. I would say maybe it’s because of the Horrorcore vibe or as a reference to songs like 3 am. The Revival thing actually comes from Recovery. If I’m right, it’s the shape of Detroit, which is shown in the alternate album cover you can find inside the CD (maybe also on vinyl?). The SHADYXV reference might be correct, but it’s also Shady’s old school look. While the following shared, “I actually think the flags and stars under the title are meant to represent Revival. The pills with the numbers on them are supposed to represent relapse, it seems. I also saw on Twitter that the ghost by his ear was the same ghost on the Bad Meets Evil Hell: The Sequel CD.

One user said: “The city is clearly Detroit. Detroit vs everyone is definitely going to be here” as, another mentioned, “Ghost is blatantly a Bad Meets Evil reference. Check the disc for Hell: The Sequel. One of them discussed the numbers on the album saying, “6 is a credit or laps = 6 albums (mtbmb was a double). 1 player out of four lot up is a solo artist not a band. It is a 1 player game. 70 is the reference that I don’t see.
