Slim Shady may be about to disappear into the shadows. Sources inside the Eminem camp indicate he may be about to retire. Marshall Mathers apparently is growing tired of the spotlight and wants to quit on top. Not that he'll have to worry about his finances, as he has sold a billion dollars in recordings as well as producing other acts such as 50 Cent.

Like many people I've been less than impressed with Mathers' offstage antics. I've never bought any Eminem albums. Yet I have enjoyed some of his singles. It will be interest to see if he actually does stay retired, or if a few years down the road we'll see him try a comeback, and as is often the case with comebacks inflict some subpar single on the world.
