It's official Eminem is working on a new album.
It's been nearly four years since Em's latest studio album, Encore, but fans can now have something to look forward too. Dr. Dre's new protégé, Bishop Lamont, recently said the Eminem drought is almost over.
"Em is excited," Lamont told Entertainment Weekly. "He's been quiet too long, and he's got a lot to get off his chest."
While there is no release date just yet, the rapper's label confirmed that Eminem is back in the studio working on his next solo project.
Since the tragic death of his best friend and fellow rapper Proof, the 35-year-old rapper has been dealing with the grief and in the process has been MIA from the music scene.
However, Lamont says this new album will alleviate all that stress. "He went through what he had to go through, and now he's been able to take all the pain and stress and put it out in his music."
Stay tuned for further details.
