The highly anticipated eighth studio album from the "King of Rap" will be released on November 5th, but Eminem may not be quite as ready as fans are to hear the new track. Eminem is reportedly still working on the album, giving it his complete attention to make it the best comeback known to man.
"Right now, I'm probably working harder than I've ever worked in my life, aside from around the time ofThe Eminem Show, when I was also doing the 8 Mile movie and soundtrack and score and shit like that." Eminem told Rolling Stone while drinking a Red Bull. "This is probably the equivalent of that, but all focused on the record".
Three songs have already hit the public from his newest album "MMLP2", his platinum-selling "Berzerk", the 'Call of Duty:Ghost jam', "Survival", and the latest leaked, "Rap God", which is the ultimate tell all story of what he has come to do with his new album. "MMLP2" was created through an abundance of aritists such as ; Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Skylar Grey, "Fun" lead singer, Nate Reuss, and of course Eminems mentor, Dr. Dre. In making "MMLP2", Eminem knew that this album had to chart them all, and the songs had to match the name of the album with its creativity.
"Calling it The Marshall Mathers LP 2, obviously I knew that there might be certain expectations," Eminem said. "I wouldn't want to call it that just for the sake of calling it that. I had to make sure that I had the right songs, and just when you think you got it, you listen and you're like, 'Fuck, man! I feel like it needs this or that,' to paint the whole picture."
Relating back to his 2000 album , "MMLP", Eminem considers that his best piece of work, but states very clearly that this is not a sequel to the best selling album. "MMLP2" is the album that is going to teach, and have people regain the respect for the 'King of Rap'.
"[MMLP2 is] not necessarily a sequel, as much as it is a revisitation," Eminem said. "So there's not gonna be, like, continuations of every old song on there or anything like that. To me, it's more about the vibe, and it's more about the nostalgia.".
