In an interview with DJ Whoo Kid on his SiriusXM station Shade 45, Eminem confirmed that he’s begun work on his eighth full-length album. Though the album isn’t that far along, Slim Shady confirmed that he would be once again collaborating with long time producer and mentor Dr. Dre.
When asked about the album’s progress, The Detroit-based rapper said: “I’m not that far along in the process as far as like figuring out. Of course Dr. Dre will be involved. I don’t have anything with him yet. What I usually do is I’ll get going you know and kind of start going in a certain direction or whatever, and just record what I’m feeling or whatever. I get a few songs, and then I get kind of a direction, and then I’ll go see Dre and fill in some of those pieces.”
He continued: “You know, Dre will listen and I’ll see what he thinks I’m missing or you know I might come to him and say ‘I think I’m missing this kind of record’ or ‘what if I went in this direction’ or whatever.”
Eminem’s last album release was 2010’s Recovery and his most recent recorded material was a collaboration with rapper Royce da 5’9′ last year as Bad Meets Evil.
