Eminem to surprise fans with album

Slaughterhouse stars Royce Da 5′ 9″ and Joell Ortiz think Eminem is keeping quiet about his new album because he wants to shock fans.


Eminem wants to surprise fans with his new album.

 

Slaughterhouse members Royce Da 5′ 9″ and Joell Ortiz – who are signed to the rapper’s own Shady Records label – believe the ‘Not Afraid’ hitmaker is deliberately keeping quiet about his upcoming eighth album because he doesn’t want to give anything away until he’s completed the final edit.

 

Royce told website Gigwise: “Em’s whole thing is the element of surprise. That’s how it’s always been with him.”

 

Joell added: “He gets in to his own world. I too am like him in a way. I like to go in to my cave and get the meat and potatoes of my album done before I venture out because I’ve gotta figure out the sound. So I’m sure that’s probably what he’s doing.”

 

The 40-year-old superstar has yet to announce a release date or a title for the hotly-anticipated record, but photographs of him in the recording studio with comedian Chris Rock and rappers Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar have surfaced.

 

Eminem has also released a track, ‘Survival’, which features on computer game ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ and is expected to make the new album’s tracklist.

 

The hip-hop icon is known for his spontaneous collaborations and recently released a record with Royce as duo Bad Meets Evil, an experience the Slaughterhouse star is already planning to follow up.

 

Royce said: “With the first Bad Meets Evil album – the one we just did – we didn’t plan that one. We didn’t know what was gonna happen and if it was gonna happen.

 

“It could end up being a situation where his album is out and Slaughterhouse’s album is out and we have some free time together. I could see it accidentally happening. But we never plan anything.”
