“And to the fans, I’ll never let you down again I’m back
I promise to never go back on that promise, ln fact
Lets be honest that last “Relapse” CD was ehhh
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground
Relax, I ain’t going back to that now”
EMINEM “NOT AFRAID”
Paul Rosenberg says the set will be “more accessible to more fans. “Eminem had pretty much completed a whole second album worth of material but at some point he took a step back, looked at it and said, ‘I think I want to record some more,’” he says. “But in recording, the album started to sound so different and was going in such a different direction that he decided to keep it going and turn it into a whole new album. The last album was really for the core Eminem fans. I think this record will open that up a bit.”
Listen to his new freestyle below. The beat switches from Drake’s “Over” to Lloyd Banks’s “Beamer Benz or Bentley,” and Eminem sounds as good as ever.
