Dr. Dre Reaffirms Eminem Is Working on Eighth Studio Album


Even without a name or release date, Eminem’s next studio album has got high expectations. Recently, we placed Em’s project at number five on our 35 most anticipated albums list of 2013. According to a recent interview by Dr. Dre, it sounds like we’ll be getting it soon.

While talking with Big Boy’s Neighborhood about his Beats Music Service, he revealed that Em is wrapping the album. He also shared Em’s work ethic has inspired him to get back into the studio. If that means more beats by the Compton producer or finally readying the release of Detox, either way we are excited to hear him in the lab again.

“Em is finishing up his project. And for me, man, I’ve just gotten inspired again to go back into the studio, so I’m just really having fun with life and having fun with being creative and trying new and different things with myself, just trying to stay active,” he said. “As you know, it’s been almost 30 years for me in music. It’s a little bit difficult to keep getting inspired to get back in there but you know, music is my first love and I’m going to continue to do that as long as I can.”

Dre’s production credits last year include 50 Cent’s “New Day,” and has appeared as a guest on Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city. Listen to the interview below.
