Eminem Says “Dr. Dre Will Be Producing The Majority Of ‘Relapse,’” Denies Working W/ Swizz Beatz

In an interview with Billboard, reclusive rapper Eminem has finally shed some light on his highly anticipated, upcoming album, Relapse. Saying him and Dr. Dre are “back in the lab like the old days,” Em cleared up the recent reports about working with Swizz Beatz on the project.

According to Em, the dynamic duo are back at it as Dre will be be providing the beats for most of the album.

” I don’t have chemistry like that with anyone else as far as producers go — not even close,” he said. “Dre will end up producing the majority of the tracks on Relapse. We are up to our old mischievous ways … let’s just leave it at that.”

Recently New York producer Swizz Beatz told MTV News that he has submited five tracks to the Detroit rapper and hinted that they put together a sequel to Em’s 2000 hit, “Stan.”  Shady refuted the claim.

“I haven’t worked with Swizz on this album,” he said. “There isn’t a ‘Stan 2,’ and there won’t be. Stan drove his car off a bridge and I’m not writing a song as Stan’s ghost. That would just be really corny.”

During the interview Em also addressed the leak of an unfinished song called “Crack A Bottle” that he’d apparently been working on with Dre. On the leaked version, which also appears on mixtape DJ Big Mike’s “4th Quarter Pressure,” fans can hear Slim using his vocals as a reference point for Dre. And Em’s not too happy about it reaching the public prematurely.

“It wasn’t close to finished, and it even has me doing guide vocals for Dre as a suggestion of how he could lay his verses down,” he said. “It’s like someone catches you peeping in your window before you got the Spider Man costume all zipped up! Nobody is supposed to see that. We are gonna finish it up though and get it out there how it’s supposed to be.”

Relapse, which was originally supposed to come out at the end of ’08, is now scheduled for a Spring 2009 release. – Jesse Gissen

    I could care less on who this cracker gets his beats from. I just hope he’s working with a ghostwriter this time around because his last few albums sucked monkey balls.

    And if he doesn’t have a ghostwriter, I hope the ghost of his dead homies proof and that other no name nigga from d12, comes back to help with wigger out or something.

    em is the best rapper alive way better than that guy from new york or the one from new orleans. can’t wait for the album!

    • I AM BARAK OBAMA

      M&M is no where near the best rapper evwer.Really what does he talk about,killin his mom and baby momma,overdosing on drugs,a fuckin fan named stan,all that is white boy shit. Thats why he fell off,because he dont have anything relevant to talk about especially reagrding black people,who run hip hop and started it.M&M was cool when he first came out but he is garbage now.What he goner talk about on this new album? Killin his mom and baby momma again,opps no more faggit ass stan songs. This dude dont even rap about bitches,or growin up struggling.He is corny and only appeals to white people or square ass black people.Real niggas in the hood dont bump M&M. It is easy to battle this nigga,all you got to do is talk about real shit and he couldnt compete. M&M is a comic book rapper or a comedian rapper. He can say funny shit but real shit, hell no,well nothin I relate to. M&M is trash,he helped out hip hop alot by openin doors but all he did was open it up for more corny white guys.White middle class people should not be able to rap or especially if you cant talk about real street shit.Because hip hop came from the streets and these dudes do not represent the streets. Trailor parks and the suburbs do not count.How muck extacy he gone rap about,how many times he gone wish to kill his mom and baby mom,? Is he gone diss anyone and im not talkin about Jarule or Jermaine Dupree. You suppose to be a lyricist and you waisted time on them clowns. M dont want to battle Royce 5’9,or any other dudes with lyrics.Even though I hate to say it,but The Game will eat M&M on some battle shit.Who else M&M dont want it with is Jadakiss!(Fuck everyone who got a problem with it)Basically fuck Marshall,and tell him stop writing for Dre and also have him drop 50 off the label. Aftermath/Shady biggest dissapointments in the last couple of years.50 flop,the Re-up album,never heard it(flop).Detox,we will never hear it(How the fuck you Dr.Dre,suppose to be the best producer ever and it takes damn near 10 years to drop an album?)I know he got a library of dope shit!What the fuck is goin on?Fuck Dre too!For that bich ass shit.Im 25 and the Detox is goin to drop when I have grandkids.Everything fell off for the Aftermath camp when Dre turned his back on his hometown dude The Game..Since then Aftermath,Gay-unit,Shady,aint done shit.. M,50&Dre are all butt buddies…All faggots. Dre is a lipstick wearin,M&M is a make up wearin,and 50 is the buff gangsta tight shirt wearin faggot on a magazine cover ass nigga…They all bitches.Aftermath is a rap,its over.oh yea!Whatever happened to Stat Quo.HaHaHa!!Oh yea Busta was a flop,Eve who dropped on Switzz Beats and Dre label flopped….Dont yall see the trend..Fuck Shady and evryone down with him..And if you want to be down with Shady fuck you too..Dr Dre fuck you too….All you mothafuckas..

        Ok I hear you on the “N” word that tom said.
        IMO NO ONE should used that word, point blank period!!!

        Do not over look the fact that “hate hate and more hate” used the very negative low blow “cracker”.
        Every action has a reaction.

        Its going into 2009 cant we all just let the negative be put to rest?!!?

        I promise you there is MUCH more to life then focusing on race,hate,favorites.

        “”You only get from life what you personally put into it”"”

      • your hella dumb

        dude, although u make extremely good points about eminem only rapping about dumb shit like his mom and kim and shit like that…. but dude u cant tell me he has no talent…and he cant rap about the shit gangstas rap about cuz hes not a fuckin gangsta. hes rappin about what he knows and about his life. as for dre and 50, i agree, 50 is a flamer, and dre aint much of an MC but a dope producer. but come on man, dissin busta? what the fuck is up with that shit….

        and dont try and hate and say i dont no real hip hop, im a wu tang fan forever, wu tang is true hip hop….

  • valdez

    I ain’t a wayne fan and Jay isn’t my favorite by any means, but honestly… I’d rather listen to either of them all day as opposed to Em. Em definitely has wordplay, but that shock rap is played out. No one wants to hear his psycho-babble.

    He has tight lines, but in the end his content is about a whole bunch of nothing. Not to involve race, but Em is for the white boys. Yeah, that’s that white boy rap. I liked MC Serch & Pete Nice (3rd Bass for the youngins) better.

    • tony grand$

      As long as Em goes back to what got him fame, he’ll be good. As soon as he stepped away from the comedy, shock value, and dementia, he fizzled. He was the illest rap dude when he touched down, & him & Dr r hella tight as a team, but he started producing his own shit, bitched and whined and complained on every song, & stopped soundin like a crazy ass white boy, which actually sounded crazier than he did when he was really a crazy ass white boy. I think a ‘Stan 2′ as Stans ghost would be nice. That’s the old Em that needs to resurface. We’ll see what his plan is for todays funny style ass rap arena. I’m gonna fuck with him just outta curiosity, but if this album sucks, I’m officially done with dude.

    • Moi

      i don’t know, people often say that, but marshall mathers, chronic 2001 era eminem had appeal all over, at least in what i know and saw. i mean, maybe it’s true, but the list of black rappers who are for the white boys is pretty damn long, like basically any gangsta rapper who ever existed (exemption made for Kool G Rap).

  • ee-city

    stans stans and more stans, I like how dudes jump in read the article then begin with the hate all of u gon have copies, so stop the nonsense, only the last album was iffey, because he used them dope beats for joke raps which i didnt even think he was feeling but if its like the eminem show or the marshal mthers LP then this shit should be dope.

  • Manka Cat

    Don’t not make a song because it might be corny. Ghost of stan? Yeah, that sounds pretty fuckin’ cheesy. But not as cheesy as Ass Like That.

    If you’re not doing Stan 2 (And the whole I am, no i’m not, yes I am thing with Em is classic. It would be just like him to throw it on last minute or as a hidden track or somthing. Make it, leak it, leave it off the album tyre shit), then don’t do it because you don’t want to, or because people are too obsessed with that song, not cause Stan’s ghost would suck. It would. But you could easily do Stan before he wrote those letters. Have him obsessed with someone else. Like a pre-eminem fascination with another rapper, and get him on the track. Or flip the bitch around in true Slim Shady form and have it be Eminem. He really did kill his girlfriend in a car wreck, but in his head. Stan is the fourth side to Eminem/Slim Shady/Marshall Mathers. Fuck, theirs a million ways to do it, just don’t NOT do it for a stupid reason.

    1996 to INFINITE

    • tony grand$

      I agree w/ Manka, that shit’ll be a hidden track, produced by Swizz Beatz lol.

  • Fireforreal

    That means dre won’t come out until summer then he’s gonna push it to fall then winter then next year. I like eminem but I’m looking forward to Dre’s project way more because of this 6 year waite. This better be the best album in music history because he’s gonna get it hard if one track isn’t fire.

    • venemez

      Detox is a myth… I lost hope on it dropping last year.

  • STEP
