Is Eminem Dropping His New Album in November?
If the rumors are true, this would be the Detroit native’s full-length project since 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Slim Shady is also set to appear on Pink’s song “Revenge” from her upcoming album, Beautiful Trauma, due out this Friday (Oct. 13).
No further details were provided in the HITS Daily Double article. Previously, 2 Chainz revealed that he recorded a song with Em that could appear on his new Shady project. “He let me hear this song and it was funny,” said Chainz. “I heard some things in there where his vernacular was 2 Chainz-y. It was crazy.”
Filmmaker Allan Hughes, who directed the Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine documentary, The Defiant Ones, revealed that Dr. Dre is working closely with Eminem on his next project. “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,” he said. “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?”
In addition to the Eminem album news, his manager and co-founder of Shady Records, Paul Rosenberg, is set to become Def Jam’s CEO in January 2018.
Finally, Em and Dr. Dre are creating music for the battle rap film Bodied, which premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
