LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 13: Rapper Eminem performs onstage at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on April 13, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.

Guess who’s back…with a beard?

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, is returning to the music scene with a new look.

He’s growing facial hair! In a recent Instagram photo, the 44-year-old rapper captioned, “Just a couple of guys from Compton and one from Detroit. With a beard.”

The normally clean-shaven Eminem doesn’t seem to be bragging too hard about the beard. The post comes off as very nonchalant and casual. If anything, it’s his fans who are going wild!

And now, Twitter is weighing in. While some of his fans approve the beard, others aren’t too keen on his scruffy new look, saying he doesn’t look like Eminem anymore, that he could pass as a dad or the lead singer of Nickelback.

We have to wonder. Either the “Lose Yourself” star needed a change or he’s too busy bustin’ out rhymes and working on a masterpiece of an album to remove the beard. Guess we will find out soon!

Do you think the singer should shave or save the beard?
