Eminem al­bum to ar­rive in au­tumn

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Eminem's new al­bum will re­port­edly be re­leased in au­tumn. The 44-year-old rap­per - whose last record was 2013's 'The Mar­shall Mathers LP 2' is among names in­clud­ing Tay­lor Swift and Sam Smith who are ex­pected to put out new records later this year on Univer­sal, web­site HITS Daily Dou­ble re­ports. It comes af­ter the hip-hop icon's man­ager Paul Rosen­berg took over as the CEO of Univer­sal Mu­sic Group's Def Jam Record­ings la­bel. Ear­lier this year, it was re­vealed that Dr. Dre, a long­time col­lab­o­ra­tor of the '8 Mile' star, is work­ing on a track for the 'Lose Your­self' hit­maker's "lat­est al­bum". 2 Chainz has also recorded a song for the al­bum, but he didn't re­ally be­lieve the rap leg­end wanted to work with him when he first found out. He said: "I've heard it all, you know what I'm say­ing? I've heard it all. You know, this like rap talk. It's like, you see a rap­per in the club and you're like, 'Let's do one.' "It's cap, you know what I mean? So you know, he's like, 'The boy wanna do some­thing with you.' And I'm like, 'What­ever.' " The pair met up at pro­ducer Rick Ru­bin's house to team up on a song which was ini­tially go­ing to be a remix be­fore 2 Chainz in­ter­vened. He said: "I tell him straight up ... 'Eminem, what would you need a remix for? Remixes are used to carry records to num­ber one spots. When have you ever did a remix for some­one or for your­self?' That's cap at it's finest." 2 Chainz feels he has fi­nally made it in the genre now that Eminem - whose real name is Mar­shall Mathers - has asked to record a track with him. He added: "That's how I know I can rap. He didn't want to talk about noth­ing but rap­ping. That was a great phone call to get." Eminem re­leased his de­but solo al­bum 'In­fi­nite' in 1996, but he re­ally hit the head­lines in 1999 when he dropped 'The Slim Shady LP', which spawned Grammy Award-win­ning hit 'My Name Is'.
