There’s not much known about the forthcoming, highly anticipated return of Eminem with Relapse, aside from the facts that he’s working heavily with Dr. Dre and also with 50 Cent. All we know right now is that it’s coming in 2009.
However, Swizz Beatz caught up with MTV recently, revealing a little bit more about Em’s new, unheard body of work. The producer revealed that, he to, has submitted tracks to the rapper. One, in particular, is the sequel to one of the white rapper’s most popular tracks.
“You know how ‘Stan’ … was the big [song]?” Swizz asked MTV, referring to the obsessed-fan track which sampled Dido’s “Thank You.” “So I worked on part 2, and I think it was, like, totally genius.”
Swizzy says he’s submitted five songs to Eminem, including one he calls a classic, that features Em, 50 Cent and Dr. Dre.
“I don’t know the title yet, but it’s classic,” he said. “It’s sounding big.”
The producer goes on to say that — from what he’s heard — fans will be pleasantly surprised with Eminem’s next album, which will be coming “probably January, February.”
“It’s different,” Swizz said. “Different sound, different mindframe. He’s clear. But it’s the Eminem that you missed, that you loved, that you need, especially right now in the industry, going into ’09. He’s coming back to take the cake.”
He also added that most of the songs from Relapse have a more personal subject matter.
