Eminem enlisted his mentor Dr. Dre to produce his highly anticipated return, Relapse, in May, and with Relapse 2, he has enlisted someone else — that being Just Blaze.
According to a report from TheBoombox.com, the Detroit rapper has called on the services of superproducer Just Blaze to handle the bulk of the production for the upcoming album.
Just Blaze, who has crafted hits for the likes of Jay-Z, The Game, and the list goes on, discussed his relationship with Em in a recent interview, where he revealed how much they’ve been working together.
“We are working on Relapse 2 pretty heavily,” he said. “As of yesterday, we’ve done about six or seven records. I go back in with him in a couple of weeks and do three or four more maybe. I’ve been quietly goin’ back forth from New York to Detroit the past two months, just gettin’ a feel for it and gettin’ a feel for working with each other.
“He hasn’t worked with too many people outside his camp. I haven’t worked with him before. We got a good working relationship now, a good friendship now, so the records is comin’ out good,” he continued
While Eminem returned was highly anticipated, fans are also anxious to hear new works from Just, who has been quiet as of late, aside from an occasional gem, such as T.I.’s “Live Your Life.” His production was absent from the most recent album from Jay-Z and Fabolous.
Relapse 2 is expected to drop late this year.
