Dem Jointz almost got in trouble for sharing Eminem’s Side B cover early

Back in 2020, when there were strong rumors that Eminem was dropping the deluxe edition of his Music To Be Murdered By album, producer Dem Jointz fired up fans all over the globe with an innocent Instagram post where he accidentally confirmed Music To Be Murdered By: Side B really existed.

In the caption of his Instagram post, he wrote: “Even Thru The S**t-Storm, Thank God For Another Successful Year!! . . . #ProducedWrittenMixedByDemJointz.”

In a recent interview with HipHopDX, the Compton native producer was asked if he got in trouble for “prematurely” unveiling Eminem’s Side B album cover art.

“I mean … I would not say I got in trouble, but I did have to explain myself. I did not see it as a big deal. I saw the full tracklist and I was like, ‘Oh s**t. So this is the B side plus the existing track list from the original.’ And when I looked online for it, that came up, the B side cover. And to me, it was just as plain as day. So as far as I am concerned, it is already out. No one gave that to me — it was online. So I was like, ‘Oh s**t. I guess the news is out then, right?’ No, it’s not. No one knew. But I did not look for this. I did not go hunting for this. This is right here, right in front of my face.”

“I do not know if anyone necessarily had a problem with me to where I got in trouble. I just think that it called for an explanation as to where I got it from. And I was just like, ‘Yeah. Well, it was already out.’”
