Eminem will introduce new music from Stat Quo, Ca$his and Bobby Creekwater on
an upcoming album Eminem Presents: The Re-Up."So
much wrong information has gotten out," Eminem said about reports of the
project. "It’s time to set the record straight." According
to the multi-platinum rapper, the project started off as a mixtape, but has since
blossomed into a full-fledged album, to be released on his Shady Records imprint.
of putting it out there rough and unfinished, I thought we should add some other
new tracks, make it a real album, and put it in the record stores to give these
new artists a real boost," Eminem explained. Eminem,
who executive produced the album, also produced most of the songs contained on
the album. Production was rounded out by Shady’s newest producer, The Alchemist.The
first single and video from the new album is "You Don’t Know," which
features Shady’s Ca$his and Eminem and G-Unit’s 50 Cent and Lloyd Banks.The
rapper shot down tracklistings and reports that have appeared on the internet
claiming that the mixtape was a tribute to slain D12 member Proof."The
D12 album and those unreleased songs with Proof are coming," Eminem stated.
"But The Re-Up is about these new artists and these new songs. It isn’t fair
to them or to the memory of Proof to mix them up."
