A representative of Eminem has criticised a publisher for revealing “inaccurate information” about the rapper’s forthcoming memoirs.
Earlier this week a spokesman for Orion Books said that Eminem: ‘The Way I Am’ would provide a unique insight into the rapper, including, unseen photographs and lyric sketches.
It was also reported that the book, described as “one of the books of the year”, would be released on October 16th.
A spokesperson for the rapper, however, has denied the claims, saying that “the book is still in the process of being written and edited."
"There is no firm release date scheduled, although it is anticipated to arrive in the latter part of this year,” they explained.
“The news about the project today came from the U.K. publisher, who is not involved in the day-to-day editing or creation of the book.
“It's unfortunate that someone who does not have intimate knowledge of the book felt compelled to jump the gun on announcing it by delivering partial and inaccurate information."
Eminem’s representative did confirm, however, that the book would contain “aspects of his personal and professional life”.
