Ahead of the “Marshall Mathers LP” listening session, Eminem invites fans and Stans alike to hit his line with messages.
And to think, the titular Stan once thought to call “Mr. I’m-Too-Good-to-Call-Or-Write-My-Fans.” How the tables have turned, as Eminem has recently launched a new campaign to directly interact with his listeners. Today, Em has doubled down on the initiative, taking to Instagram to once again invite fans to reach out and message him at the number “313-666-7440,” which can be done right here.

“Dear Stan, I meant to write you sooner, but I just been busy,” he writes, alluding to the classic track that went on to spark a “Stan” movement. “Text me, ill hit you back.” For those unaware, Em actually kicked this movement off in honor of the Marshall Mathers LP’s 20th anniversary, which transpired on May 23rd. That’s not the only fan interaction he’s got planned; this Wednesday, he’ll also be attending an online listening session for the Marshal Mathers LP, where he’ll be engaging in a Q&A with those in attendance.
Given that Em is one of the biggest artists in the world, it’s hard to imagine he’ll be able to directly correspond to every message. Yet you won’t know until you try, so channel your inner Stan and get to jotting. Are you planning on firing off some thoughts to Slim Shady?
