Eminem Begins Work on Seventh Album-
Talking with interviewers in New York City, Mr. Mathers spoke on the end and beginning of some projects he’s been working on lately.
Eminem didn’t want to give too much away (maybe because he doesn’t know it himself yet) but he did mention that he had begun work on his new and seventh album, at the same time finishing up the album for the main group on his Shady Records label, Slaughterhouse.
“Right now, I’m finishing up everything on the Slaughterhouse album and kinda getting into my next record a little bit,” he explained.
Still not trying to get into details, Em only said he was “starting to toy” with the upcoming EP.
Slaughterhouse debuts Welcome to: Our House in June. No word on when Eminem wants to release his new album.
