Saturday, Oct 3, 2009 6:36PM
Eminem has broken his silence on the highly-anticipated Relapse 2 album and said fans should expect to hear 50 Cent on the project along with production from Just Blaze.
While not naming any song titles, Slim Shady said his collaboration with the G-Unit leader features them exchanging eight bars.
"Me and Fif did a couple of records, couple of months ago in Vegas, one song for my record and another for his," Em revealed in an interview. "We just wanted to like, I just had an idea to like 'Yo, why don't we do something we ain't done yet.' And kinda go back and forth, we've kinda done it on other records but not to the extent of what we're doing on this one...The way that it's going now, K'Naan has two [produced] tracks on the record and Just Blaze has four, possibly five...I definitely feel like I'm in a little different space right now. I don't know, with the last record, it felt like a lot of it had to do with me being sober...With Relapse 1 -- a lot of that album, I wanted to rap at fire and do punchlines." (Shade 45)
DJ Whoo Kid recently spoke about what rap heads should anticipate from Relapse 2 and promised a return of the "old" Slim Shady.
"What I really laughed at was the Mariah Carey [diss record]," Whoo Kid said in an interview. "That was funny. But that's nothing compared to Relapse 2. What I heard, that's just 2 percent [of the intensity]. Eminem from back in the day has returned. The crazy, lyrical, maniacal Eminem is back. Maniac! He was maniacal, but that was like, 'Let me come back now. Let me get my sh*t situated. Who I gotta go at? Let me see what's going on. Let me get comfortable.' Now that he's comfortable, now he's gonna be like [a monster] in Relapse 2. Good luck, people." (MTV)
