Grammy–winning rapper Eminem recently confirmed
plans to start working on a new solo album and said fans can expect him
to hook back up with longtime producer Dr. Dre.
"Yeah, of course he'll be involved," he said. "I usually get
going and kind of start going a certain direction and just record what
I'm feeling. Then I'll go see Dre and fill in some of those pieces." (Shade 45)
In May, Slaughterhouse's Royce Da 5'9 hinted at Em's return to music–making.
"Em is fantastic," Royce said in an interview with radio personality Tim Westwood. "He's in the studio right now, in between mixing our stuff and working on his solo stuff. He's keeping hisself real busy." ("Tim Westwood TV")
Back in February, Em's 2010 solo effort, Recovery, hit four times platinum status.
Following two diamond plaques in 2011, Eminem has earned yet another feather in the cap as his 2010 album Recovery
has earned a 4x platinum certification from the RIAA. Apart from this,
his single 'Love The Way You Lie' is 2011's highest certified song with
sales exceeding 5 million. Does he have any competition? (Hip Hop N More)
In summer 2011, Interscope Records' Vice Chairman Steve Berman announced Em made history with his last LP.
This record–setting career milestone comes just one week
after the artist landed at No. 1 with Hell: The Sequel, the release from
Bad Meets Evil, the duo formed by Eminem and fellow Detroit native
Royce Da 5'9." This marks the first time in the last five years an
artist has scored two No. 1 albums within a 12–month period. "Recovery
selling 1 million digital albums is an incredible achievement by an
incredible artist," says Interscope Records' Vice Chairman Steve Berman
in a release. (USA Today)
