Eminem is back “Officially” – News of the World article

HIP hop, yer don’t stop—especially if you’re still SLIM SHADY.

That’s right rap fans. Throw ya hands up in the air, and wave ’em like you just don’t care . . . for I can reveal that the Em-pire will strike back this Christmas.

After years out of the rap game, the world’s most popular lyrical gangster EMINEM is back and spitting dope rhymes in the studio again.

I understand that Slim Shady will stand up in style with a new album called King Mathers.

Slim, real name MARSHALL MATHERS III, revealed: “I’m writing and producing again, banging out tracks—and the music just gets better and better.”

No doubt, homie . . .

The 35-year-old megastar has sold a staggering 80 MILLION records and now his label Interscope Records can’t wait for his new release by the end of the year.

My source tells me: “It’s exciting times and, of course, there’s massive expectation surrounding this new record.

“But the fans need not worry about its quality. Most of the music’s being mastered at the moment. There’s a real belief the album will go stellar.”

The 8 Mile actor has teamed up with fellow hip hop rhymesayer 50 CENT in the studio. I’m told the pair have been spending hour upon hour at the mixing desk in Em’s Detroit home perfecting one of the biggest comebacks since the SPICE GIRLS.

“Eminem is out to realise his full potential,” adds my man in the recording suite. “The volume and quality of music he’s producing is prodigious.”

It’s good news for the controversial rapper after years of hurt. The star who brought us classics like Way I Am and Stan, confronted an addiction to sleeping pills in 2005.

But the doting dad—still embroiled in an ongoing slagging match with mum Debbie Nelson—has revealed that the worst is over and he can finally concentrate on his music, which is great news for his legion of fans.

He says: “For a while, I didn’t want to go back to the studio. I went through some bad times but I’m coming out of those. It feels good.”

Benzino talks again about Eminem & 50 Cent

Trick Trick talks about albums from Eminem, himself

Eminem’s new album will feature the full-fledged return of Em’s celeb-skewering alter ego Slim Shady, according to Em’s pal Trick Trick.

“Everybody gets it. No one is safe,” says Trick, a close friend and cohort of Eminem. “He is showing no mercy. Slim Shady is a (13-letter curse word), and he’s back.”

Eminem set aside his Slim Shady persona, effectively killing him off on “When I’m Gone,” a track from his 2005 greatest hits set “Curtain Call.” A resurrection of sorts would seemingly signal a return to the days when Em savaged pop culture targets such as the Spice Girls on 1999’s “My Name Is,” *NSYNC and Christina Aguilera on 2000’s “The Real Slim Shady” and Moby on 2002’s “Without Me.”

There is still no release date for Eminem’s still-untitled album, his first studio LP since 2004’s “Encore.” It is expected to be released before the end of this year, though there has been no official word from his label, Interscope Records.

Trick Trick says that Eminem was in the studio last month in Orlando, Fla., working with Dr. Dre when Dre’s 20-year-old son was killed in Los Angeles. Though Dre’s long-in-the-making “Detox” LP was also penciled in for a fourth quarter release this year, it is unclear what effect, if any, the death of Dre’s son will have on either his or Em’s albums.

Trick Trick, meanwhile, is set to release his new album, “The Villain,” on Oct. 28. The follow-up to 2005’s “The People Vs.,” the album features a cavalcade of A-list guests, including Eminem, Dr. Dre, Kid Rock, Ice Cube, Lil Jon and more.

Eminem raps on one track, “Who Want It,” and produced three of the album’s cuts. Dre produced “Hold On,” while Kid Rock raps on a cover of Run D.M.C.’s “Together Forever” alongside E-Sham and late Detroit rapper Proof. The track has an appropriately old-school feel, and while previewing it for The News on Wednesday at his Livonia studio, Trick tightly clutched the diamond-studded cross around his neck during Proof’s verse, which Trick says was recorded only two days before his death in April 2006.

Trick recently shot a video for “Let It Fly,” a song he recorded with Ice Cube, on which Cube cracks a joke about former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s text-messaging scandal. Trick also recently shot a video in downtown Detroit for “I Luv It,” which acts as a tribute to his city and features scenes shot in front of Comerica Park and downtown headwear emporium Henry the Hatter, among other Detroit locales.

“The Villain” — which also features an assemblage of Detroit rap talent, including Paradime, Guilty Simpson, Marvwon and Fatt Father — is Trick’s tribute to the Motor City, he says.
“This album is me letting the world know that this is Detroit,” says Trick, born Christian Mathis. “This is what we are. This is who I am, and I’ll show them what Detroit is. Eminem did his thing. He’s the number one rapper in the world, and he’s from Detroit. I’m just backing that up.”

Eminem ‘Banging Out Tracks’ For New Album

After years away from the limelight, Eminem may be releasing a new album this year.

The MC admitted he’s been producing for his Shady Records artists and himself during a recent appearance on his Sirius satellite radio station, Shade 45, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Delicious Vinyl Records. Eminem also interviewed MC Masta Ace, who he’s long noted as an influence.

“I’m concentrating on my own stuff right now -just banging out tracks,” Eminem said. “The more I keep producing, the better it seems I get. I start knowing stuff, learning the boards like the back of my hands.”

A representative for Interscope says there is no official release date nor a first single, but confirms that an album may come before the year’s end. Eminem’s last effort, “Encore,” was released in 2004.

In addition, 50 Cent spoke to BBC’s Radio 1 this week and said fans will be “seeing [Eminem] shortly. He’s working. I spent the weekend at his house. Even though he tries to relax and stay home, it’s impossible for him to stay in.”

Eminem’s Mom Sets Date To Tell All

Eminem’s mom is planning to release her ‘tell all’ book on November 1st, according to Amazon. With a title almost as long as the book (“My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem: Setting the Record Straight on My Life As Eminem’s Mother”), the book is being sold as Eminem’s mothers side of the famous story of her son. 

As we previously reported, Eminem’s mother, Debbie Nelson, was sued back in April by a man who said he was her literary agent. The man, Neal Alpert, claimed she went behind his back to release this book, saying the book was his idea.
