Eminem Talks Relapse, Return To The Big Screen On Shade 45

Eminem is in full promotional mode. Earlier this morning (April 23) the Detroit superstar appeared on Angela Yee’s Lip Service show on his own Shade 45 Sirius Satellite Radio channel. During the interview Em hinted at his return to the silver screen, revealed more details on his upcoming comeback album and talked about his new single.

With Relapse, his first solo album in close to five years, hitting stores in the coming weeks, Shady told Yee that he is already preparing to drop another song from the project. Two weeks ago, MTV premiered the comical “We Made You” clip, which found Em following his familiar tactics, playing dress up and making fun of several pop culture mainstays like Lindsay Lohan, Amy Winehouse, Jessica Simpson and Kim Kardashian, but for his new single Em plans on going in a different direction.

The song, titled “3 A.M.,” “ is a lot darker than ‘We Made You,’” Em said. Adding, “ the whole album is different from the single.” The rapper said the video, which was shot in his hometown of Detroit, MI, is already done and will be dropping soon.

Asked if he tried any different approaches musically this go-around Em said with Dr. Dre producing most of the album, he was allowed to focus more on being creative with his vocal presence. “Dre made a lot of tracks,” he explained, “and I would get to pick through ’em and I tried to pick the ones that would challenge me rhythm wise. I tried to experiment with a bunch of different flows, “ he admitted. “I try to do that every album, but this album I actually got an opportunity to sit down, and go all out with, and try to make every flow different and just pick unique beats.”

Aside from Relapse, whose cover art recently spilled onto the Net, Em’s longtime manager and business partner Paul Rosenberg told listeners that the rapper will be making a cameo in a movie this summer. Without giving any further information Rosenberg said, “It’s kind of like a big deal.” Em added that he’s open to returning to the film world, “We’re definitely open to scripts and I’m definitely looking to get back into it soon,” he said enthusiastically.

Em graces the cover of the new XXL magazine as Marvel comic book character The Punisher, which hits stands on May 5. Relapse is set to come to shelves on May 19, with the sequel to the disc to be released sometime later this year. – Elan Mancini

  • mario

    i Fucking hate “We Made you” worst em song ever made I’m waitiing on that XXL in the mail and that Album hell yeah and make 50′s ass hurry the fuck up with the album.

      I disagree. I believe he lyrically and rhythmically took that song to another level. Most of his songs (well, his first singles/funny songs) are in either ABAB, AABB, ABBB, BBBB, etc. mode. But he attacks this track through triplets, which takes some skill to do. I understand you wanting him to spit his life out, but you gotta understand, he’s gotta be funny for his first single AND he’s gotta be a bit more upbeat since Proof’s untimely departure.

  • maCaso

    We Made You is the worst Eminem song ever! but its still FIYARR Hope he disses Rick Ross in Relapse or Relapse 2

  • RWord

  • Mutada al sader the king

    ^ No its not, his flow is sick on that song. Its just not what we expected. The quirky beat and the chick on the hook and some of the old news in the lyrics is what kind of made it wack. But its not that bad.

    AsherEM who ?

  • Tre

    He said he always releases that type of song to catch the folks, then the album. But I’m looking forward to it.

  • Curtis75Black

    Ya’ll making it like Em is a Coke dealing Cousin, selling to your Mom. “It’s the worst you shit you’ve ever done but it’s not THAT Bad, since you’re fam”. A wack track is a wack track regardless who made it. Outdated “POP”events being talked about is trash even from your favorite emcee.

  • Tre

    Yeah well…. Like I said, he puts those tracks out to catch the people, then he drops the album. I’ve always skipped the single once I buy his album.

  • ChRi$

    i hope 3 A.M. iz a straight hood / grimey ass hardcore track

  • ukkh

    we made you isnt wack, if em wants to talk about something thats already happened he can, is there a law where he has to speak about things that are happening now? NO! he’s been away for a while and he probly wanted to touch on a few things that he wasnt around to speak about. Dont know what yall bitchin for anyway you gonna be the first person to jump on his dick when he drops his album

    I love how ya’ll look at the bright side of steppin’ in shit. “At least the man cleaned his bowels !!”. Next time you hear a track from ya’ll less than favorite emcee who constantly drops a club banger, Love song, Gangsta Track or Poppy R& B Collabo with the Hottest singer at the time when you know you want what they can deliver, A Lyrical Tirade over a Funky Beat, Have these same responses. Look forward to hearing the rest of the cd instead of writing it off as wack from a single he dropped.
