D12‘s Mr. Porter has updated fans going nuts over Eminem’s long-awaited Marshall Mathers LP 2 reaching completion. The Detroit native has cleared up widespread speculation about the project’s status.

Porter recently stepped up to reveal he joked about Em wrapping up the studio release.

Complex reached out to Denaun Porter, who said that his statement that Eminem was “done” with his new album was simply him joking with interneters who kept asking him about status of the long-awaited project. “They trolled the shit out of me the whole time,” he explained. “Anytime they come in there, they can expect to get trolled with any kind of question like that,” the producer said. “I’m never the person to give up that kind of information. I might say, ‘Hey, we’re working on it’ or ‘Hey, we’re close.’ But I’m never going to be the guy that gives up the information. But they can get trolled.” (Complex)

Recently, film director Allen Hughes revealed Dr. Dre is quietly putting together Eminem’s next album.

“Dre still records. People don’t know this: Dre records every day. Literally, he’s in there recording songs every day. He’s like Picasso in that way. He’s always painting. Right now he’s producing, in the 11th hour, a track for Eminem’s latest album. So Dre’s still real active in music, you know? But I hear what you’re saying. It’s the truth.” (UPROXX)

In June, Em raised eyebrows after he hooked up with G.O.O.D. Music’s 2 Chainz.
