Eminem's new album may not be surfacing until the fall, but there are two possible album titles floating around the Internet, NiNE and Redemption.

The more credible of the sources of these names is directly one of the rapper's producers and friends, Denaun Porter, who is also known as Mr. Porter of affiliated rap group D12. A follower of his tweeted the question, "Can u at least Tell us the name of the album?" to which he replied, "Yes its called NiNE."
However, the fan tweeting the question never referred to Eminem while posing the question, therefore, it does not directly have to be about the Michigan-born rapper.
Recently an image of Eminem with the word "Redemption" underneath has spread on Twitter. The image is most likely fake, but the title and image align perfectly with his last two albums.
Redemption would complete the story he started telling on Relapse and then continued on Recovery.
"We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He's been working on it for some time. It's safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we're not exactly sure when. We've got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we're trying to see what else lines up," said Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg in a public statement back in February.
The good news for fans of the rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, is his upcoming performance on Aug. 7 at the G-Shock 30th Anniversary Party. He will be performing some new songs at the show, according to KPopStarz.com.
Eminem will be embarking on a small European tour with Kendrick Lamar and Tyler, the Creator starting on Aug. 15.
A new documentary film, "How to Make Money Selling Drugs," will also feature Eminem talking about his past as a drug abuser and how he beat it.
"My name is Marshall. I'm an addict," he says in Matthew Cooke's movie.
