Eminem close to finishing new album
First announced around this time last year, rap superstar Eminem is reportedly finishing up his eighth studio album.
Confirmation was given earlier today when producer/rapper/long-time friend Dr. Dre spoke on Big Boy's Neighborhood show on Power 106 FM. Word was given prior by long-time Eminem collaborator Royce Da 5'9” via AllHipHop, who is also rumored to work with him on the upcoming album.
The full Power 106 FM interview is available below, which contains Dre's confirmation.
“Em is finishing up his project. And for me, man, I’ve just gotten inspired again to go back into the studio, so I’m just really having fun with life and having fun with being creative and trying new and different things with myself, just trying to stay active,” he says. “As you know, it’s been almost 30 years for me in music. It’s a little bit difficult to keep getting inspired to get back in there but you know, music is my first love and I’m going to continue to do that as long as I can.”
