50 Cent recently talked about the anticipation for Eminem's upcoming Relapse release and promised fans more quality material.
Confirming Em's aim to release two projects within 2009, 50 stressed his boss' advanced lyricism on Relapse.
"I mean, it's great," Fif promised. "I think you should expect it to go up. Like, I felt like those choices were, personally, I think the first single was one of his better records lyrically. And he put it out and obviously he felt the same way. But he's got some records on this album that are way better to me 'cause there was so much material that he split it into two albums. So they get [Relapse] and then probably in the fourth quarter they'll hear him on the next album." (MTV)
Em's deejay, The Alchemist, also said the project would be filled with Dr. Dre beats.
"I just got back from Detroit, was with Em for like three or four days working," Al explained. "Got a chance to listen to the whole album and man, I love my album and it's coming out in mid-June, when he played his album I wanted to throw mine away, straight up... Like when he was playing me the album, like, I didn't wanna say it 'cause I was like thinking of his whole body of work and I was like, 'This might be some of his best body of work,' in my opinion. It's 16 Dr. Dre beats, it's like Em kinda decided, I'm assuming, when was the last time you heard a full production of Dr. Dre's music through and through, minus one joint, Em did one joint. The attention Dre put on those beats is the equivalent to the attention Em put on to the writing." (The Maguire)
Aside from music, Em will reportedly be featured on an upcoming episode of "Family Guy."
