Eminem is currently crafting a new album, according to 50 Cent. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the G-Unit head honcho confirmed he’s working on a song for Slim Shady’s next LP.
50 was speaking to THR to promote his hit series Power, which is in the middle of its final season, and discuss the show’s spinoff Power Book 2: Ghost. He mentioned his contribution to Eminem’s album after reflecting on their most recent collaboration: Ed Sheeran’s “Remember The Name” single
“I got another record from Em he sent for his new album,” 50 said around the seven-minute mark.
50 previously mentioned working with Eminem on a new song during an appearance on Real 92.3 in Los Angeles. While he didn’t explicitly say the track was for Slim Shady’s next LP, he appeared to acknowledge it was when radio hosts Bootleg Kev and DJ Hed inquired about it.
“He sent me a record now, he working now,” 50 said about 29 minutes into the conversation. “He got some things, man. Still the highest rap-selling artist in the world.”
Eminem’s latest album, Kamikaze, unexpectedly dropped without any promotion in August 2018. Even producers involved in the project, such as Grammy Award winner S1, didn’t know it was being released when it did.
“I literally looked at my social media timeline and I saw somebody’s post say, ‘The Eminem album is out now,’” S1 told GroovyTracks last year. “I said, ‘What?’ I had wind of it because they started asking to do paperwork on some joints and usually during that stage when you start doing paperwork, you know that the album is getting to a closing out point. But as far as the release, I had no idea. They kept that from … I guess they had to keep it really secret so it wouldn’t get out. They didn’t even tell us, the people that were working on the album. They kept it pretty private.”
50’s comments have, at the very least, put Eminem fans on alert for another album. But he’s not the only talking. Veteran radio host Big Boy recently revealed Em’s been back in the studio with Dr. Dre too.
