Two years after his smash hit, Recovery, Grammy-winning rapper Eminem is getting his Shady Records back on track. In a recent phone interview with Nick Craig on Chanel 95.5 in Detroit, Slim Shady discussed his involvement in the production of Slaughterhouse’s album and his relationship with 50 Cent. He also revealed that work on his new solo album is already underway.
The rap legend, who is very “hands on” with Slaughterhouse’s Welcome to: Our House, said that the project is finally complete.
“I’ve kind of been really hands-on with this album for the past year. This has kinda been a pet project for me. I’ve kind of been executive producing, producing, co-producing, mixing—very hands-on with it and just really involved. We’re actually finishing up today. We’re handing the album in today.”
Welcome to: Our House is slated to drop on August 28.
As for his own highly anticipated new album, Slim Shady revealed that he is prepping his solo material, but he hasn’t been fully immersed in it yet because he has been thoroughly focused on the Slaughterhouse project.
“I actually started my album, but I haven’t fully went in yet because I’ve been finishing up this Slaughterhouse record.”
The Detroit rapper didn’t elaborate on his plan for a release date just yet.
On another note, Eminem mentioned how he and 50 Cent are close even outside of business. He also praised 50 for his business skills and showed the respect he has for the G-Unit founder.
“Ever since we started making music with Fif, it was always like a mutual respect thing, and we became friends outside of the music. 50 is very big on the business aspects of his career. I would consider him a smart businessman. Not saying that I’m not, but I don’t get into as much of the technical aspect in the business sense.
