Report: Eminem Working on Fifth Album, Label Says
Rapper Eminem is officially back in the studio and working on his new album, a label source tells Bishop Lamont, another protÈgÈ of Eminem and Dr. Dre, said, ìEm is excited. Heís been quiet too long, and heís got a lot to get off his chest.î
Itís been four years since Slim Shady released his last studio album, Encore. In the time since, one of Eminemís closest friends, rapper Proof, was shot and killed, leaving Em emotionally devastated. There were also reports late last year that the 8 Mile star suffered a mild heart attack, thought people close to him said he just had the flu.
ìHe went through what he had to go through, and now heís been able to take all the pain and stress and put it out in his music,î Lamont added.
No release date for the Marshall Mathersí fifth album has been announced.
