(AllHipHop News) Eminem recently spoke to DJ Whoo Kid during a Shade 45 interview about a number of topics, including his work or lack thereof so far with Dr. Dre on his upcoming eighth studio album, his appearance in Ice-T’s Art of Rap documentary, an upcoming tour of Asia, and more.
About his currently untitled, new album, Eminem told Whoo Kid, “I’m not that far along in the process as far as like figuring out. I mean, yeah, of course [Dr. Dre] will be involved. I don’t have anything with him yet.”
“What I usually do is I’ll get going you know and kind of start going in a certain direction or whatever, and just record what I’m feeling or whatever,” he continued. “I get a few songs, and then I get kind of a direction, and then I’ll go see Dre and fill in some of those pieces.”
When pressed for more information regarding his working relationship with Dre, Eminem said, “You know, Dre will listen and I’ll see what he thinks I’m missing or you know I might come to him and say ‘I think I’m missing this kind of record’ or ‘what if I went in this direction’ or whatever.”
As the topic changed to Eminem’s appearance in Ice-T’s recently released Art of Rap documentary, longtime manager Paul Rosenberg revealed that there would be more unseen and extended footage of the two Hip-Hop icons released later this year. ”That documentary was fun because doing sh*t like that, I can talk about Rap all day, so I probably could have went on and I think I actually went on longer then that actual piece was.”
