Eminem has revealed details of his long-awaited new album, "Relapse," in an exclusive interview with Billboard, conducted via email. The set is due next spring from Shady/Interscope.

Eminem is working on "Relapse" with longtime collaborator Dr. Dre, who put his own album, "Detox," on the backburner to help bring the project to completion.

"Me and Dre are back in the lab like the old days, man," Eminem says. "Just him banging away on tracks and me getting that little spark that makes me write to it. I don't have chemistry like that with anyone else as far as producers go -- not even close. Dre will end up producing the majority of the tracks on Relapse.' We are up to our old mischievous ways ... let's just leave it at that."

A handful of songs intended for "Relapse" have leaked online, most recently "Crack a Bottle," leaving Eminem "really heated. It wasn't close to finished, and it even has me doing guide vocals for Dre as a suggestion of how he could lay his verses down. It's like someone catches you peeping in your window before you got the Spider Man costume all zipped up! Nobody is supposed to see that. We are gonna finish it up though and get it out there how it's supposed to be."

Eminem also responded to producer Swizz Beats' recent comment that he'd submitted a track for the project described as a sequel to the hit single "Stan," telling Billboard, "I haven't worked with Swizz on this album.

"There isn't a 'Stan 2,' and there won't be," he says. "Stan drove his car off a bridge and I'm not writing a song as Stan's ghost. That would just be really corny."

While working on "Relapse," Eminem was also writing his autobiography, "The Way I Am," with Sacha Jenkins. The book has received favorable reviews and has spent time in the top 20 of the New York Times hardcover nonfiction best-sellers list.

"For me, writing an album is an entirely different process from making this book," he says. "The album requires a certain focus of mine that I can't really explain -- let's just say it's all I can really do while I'm doing it. With the book, the process was much more spread out, like, 'Let's get you together with Sacha for a few hours next week. Let's go thru these photos and artwork, etc.' The book was a lot more of a focus here-and-there thing as opposed to music, which totally consumes me every second."

Eminem goes into great detail in "The Way I Am" about how much he was impacted by the 2006 shooting death of fellow Detroit rapper Proof, who was one of his best friends.

"Opening the book with Proof's chapter was real important for me," Eminem says. "Everything from my past moving into my future is marked by his passing. It's sort of like life when Proof was with us, and life after -- a real dividing factor. He means more to me than a book chapter could describe, but I'm glad I was able to put him first, like he did for me so many times."

As for Shady Records' 2009 roster, Eminem says 50 Cent's delayed "Before I Self Destruct" will be out in February. "He's still working on it and getting back together with me and Dre next week to finish up," he says. "I have a couple of tracks on there with him. It's sick."

Afterward, Ca$his will release the follow-up to his 2007 "County Hound EP." Says Eminem, "People are going to be surprised what he is capable of. I produced a bunch of records on there as well."

With pictures showing up last week of Eminem at a video set in Santa Monica, CA, many rumors have started about what Eminem was actually doing. No matter what Slim Shady is up to, 50 Cent says he reminds 50 of his grandmother. "It's always a pleasure working with Em for me," 50 said on the set of his new movie "Dead Man Running." "When I leave here, I'm actually going back to the States, to Detroit, to work with him again. You know, me and Em, we work really close together. He's like a relative to me. ... He's done something for me. He's like my grandmother. He's someone that provided an opportunity for me to take care of myself when I couldn't take care of myself. My grandma did it when I was a child, and then Em provided the opportunity for me as an adult." 

    A new Eminem song leaked recently. "Breaking Bottles" [

    In related news, Eminem's mother Debbie Nelson recently was interviewed as she is doing promotion for her new book on her famous son. Check out the entire interview ON da site.

Ripley's Believe It Or Not! has acquired a portrait of Eminem made entirely out of M&M's candy. The portrait, made out of more than 1,000 individual peices, was made by Florida resident Enrique Ramos who used over 8 pounds of chocolate to capture Marshall Mathers in a 40"x30" piece. “Our customers have a pretty good eye for art. They won’t be disappointed by Eminem in M&M’s,” Tim O’Brien, VP of Communications for Ripley’s Believe It or Not! said, “This thing looks good enough to eat.” The Eminem, M&M, portrait will hang along side other weird art pieces like the picture of Princess Diana made from lint and a shot of Micheal Jackson made from gumballs.In related news, Eminem recently told Carson Daily on the finale of MTV's "TRL" that his new album "Relapse" would be hitting stores early next year.

Eminem's latest album, "Relapse," is now headed for an early 2009 release, the Detroit rapper announced during the live three-hour sendoff to MTV's daily video countdown show, "TRL," on Sunday evening. Chatting to former "TRL" host Carson Daly on the phone from the Detroit studio where he's working on the new album, Em said, "We're looking at first quarter next year, which is probably, you know, January, February." The album was previously gunning for a late 2008 release. Em said he's "real close" to finishing "Relapse," his first studio effort since 2004's "Encore." He said he's recorded nearly 100 songs in the last couple of years, "but now we've just got to go through everything, pick the best ones and, you know, put it out." Daly asked what the feel of the new album is and where Em is drawing inspiration, but Em declined to answer, saying only that its title, "Relapse," had multiple meanings. "People just gotta hear it," he said. Along with *NSYNC and Britney Spears, Eminem was one of the stars who helped make "TRL" something of the "American Bandstand" for the Gen-Y set. Sunday's star-studded finale marked the end of a 10-year run for the show. Eminem's video for "The Real Slim Shady" was honored on Sunday as the No. 2 video in the program's history. Reminiscing on when fans filled Times Square for his appearances on the show, Em said, "You try to make sense of it all, and you do the best you can with it." "The vibe of everything was always great there," he said. "I feel like they're kind of tearing down my home." Kid Rock was another Detroit star who was launched into the stratosphere thanks to his exposure on "TRL," and his video "Bawitdaba" was named No. 6 on the show's all-time countdown. Rock appeared in the flesh on Sunday's show, and entered the "TRL" studio puffing on a cigar and drinking a cup of champagne. "If it wasn't for 'TRL,' I don't think I would have had this launching pad for my career," Rock told Daly. "I always said if my music got to the people that I think they would respond, and this was the place where it did get to the people." Sunday's "TRL" finale also included appearances by Justin Timberlake, 50 Cent, Beyonce, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and more. "TRL," whose letters stood for "Total Request Live," premiered in Sept. 1998. Due to waning ratings, its cancellation was announced in September.

An insider told the New York Post that they think Eminem's album will drop early next year but there is still a possibility it might come in December. "There's a 50-50 chance it will be done the end of this year," the source says "But most likely it'll be the first quarter of next year. It's great." The source also told the post "Eminem has been through a lot. He is being a perfectionist and is completely obsessive-compulsive about this album."

The Best Rapper Alive

Over 920,000 votes later, VIBE announces the winner of it’s first annual Best Rapper Alive tournament.
When VIBE decided to let the people decide The Best Rapper Alive, we just wanted to have a little fun. But with a final tally exceeding 920,000 votes, it’s safe to say we touched a nerve. Since the competition began on July 21, the NCAA tournament – style bracket sparked bedlam. T.I.? Nas? Joe Budden? Rick Ross? Decisions had to be – and were – made.
In the early rounds there were few upsets, as most of the higher-seeded competitors triumphed. Until the final eight MCs remained, it looked as though all four No. 1 seeds – Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Eminem, and Andre 3000 – would land in the final four. But then, the bark of underdogs could be heard in the distance.
The lesser of the two upsets took place in the Big Punisher bracket. Andre was defeated by No. 3 seed The Game, just as his album, LAX (Geffen), was impacting nationwide. In the Pimp C bracket, Lil Wayne, the man who many thought would take home the title, lost to Ludacris, also a No. 3 seed. Unfortunately for The Game and Luda die-hards, Cinderella would not be anyone’s date to the big dance. Jay-Z and Eminem easily beat out Ludacris and Game respectively, setting up a titanic final matchup. In the end, Eminem prevailed in a surprising landslide victory. Despite no proper album releases, since 2004’s, Encore (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope), 69 percent of the votes went to Detroit’s native son easily outpacing office favorite Jay-Z’s 31 percent.

“Its obviously an honour to have won the fans’ support by being voted the Best Rapper Alive,” Eminem said in response to his victory. “I don’t think that there is any one rapper that is simply the best though. Everyone who was in consideration and many others are the best at certain things, and at what they do. But since VIBE’s offering the distinction, hell yeah I’ll accept!”
and there could be a party in perang hotel
so just wait theres a party for all of us

But no matter the victor, one thing was clear: The debate about who The Best Rapper Alive is (or is not) lives on. We just might have to do it again next year.

On October 21st, Em is releasing his second book. The Way I Am is a collection of Marshall’s personal stories, reflections, photographs, original artwork, and never before published lyric sheets. In the first printing of the book, there is also a DVD included which contains Em’s personally shot video footage and unreleased interviews.
A couple of my favorite things about the book are the cover and the detachable lyric sheets. The cover is a red acetate film that slides over the traditional book print (similar to Jay-Z’s Kingdom Come CD). The red jacket masks the collage of Em’s handwritten lyrics on top of the underlying photo… you kind of have to see it to really get the effect. Also inside the book in the back are several perforated pages which one can pull out of the book. On these pages are reproductions of Em’s actual lyric sheets for songs like “Stan” and “Lose Yourself”. I fought hard for the book to have the pages detachable because there is something special about being able to hold the actual page in your hand and turn it around and around to decipher what Em’s semi-legible writing is saying. (Somehow he reads right off of the pages with ease and can see the song there). Again, you have to really see the lyric sheets to fully understand what I’m describing.
So, there are two ways to do that! First, of course, you can buy the book when it comes out on 10/21 everywhere in the U.S. Second, you can enter the Sirius Satellite Radio Shade45 contest for the book by clicking here. Grand prize winner will receive a all-expense paid trip to NYC for the book launch event along with other special prizes.

Ludacris is going to be a busy man this fall. He's completing the final tracks for his sixth Disturbing Tha Peace/Def Jam album, Theater of the Mind, due October 21st, and that month will also co-star in Max Payne (10/17), adapted from the popular videogame, and Guy Ritchie's RocknRolla (10/31).
Theater of the Mind comprises tracks envisioned as short plots from movies. And in Ludacris' special brand of musical theater, the featured guests -- including T-Pain ("One More Drink"), the Game ("Call Up the Homies") and T.I. ("Wish You Would") -- are billed as co-stars. Producers include Dre & Vidal and 9th Wonder as well as members of Three 6 Mafia ("Let's Stay Together"). The official lead single, "What Them Girls Like," co-stars Chris Brown and writer/producer Sean Garrett and features a video inspired by the Mel Gibson movie What Women Want.
"Theater of the Mind is all of my albums put together," says Ludacris, who still hopes to hook up with Eminem for the album. "There's the funny Ludacris, the serious Ludacris and the story-telling Ludacris as well as the movie-making Ludacris."
Max Payne finds Ludacris playing deputy police chief Jim Bravura. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg in the title role and veteran actor Beau Bridges.
"This adaptation takes the storyline and the characters to a whole other level," Ludacris says. "This is the first time I've played any kind of police role. It's funny ... in most movies, Mark plays the dominant role but my character is the dominant one over Mark. That was a power thing and I absolutely loved it."

Product Description For the first time, one of music’s most popular—and headline-making—rap artists shares his private reflections, drawings, handwritten lyrics, and never-before-seen photographs. Fiercely intelligent, relentlessly provocative, and prodigiously gifted, Eminem is known as much for his enigmatic persona as for being the fastest-selling rap artist and the first rapper to ever win an Oscar. Now, in The Way I Am, he shares his private thoughts on everything from his inner struggles, to the trials of being famous, to his love for his daughter, Hailie, creating a book that is every bit as raw and uncensored as the man himself. Illustrated with never-before-seen photographs of Eminem’s home and life along with original drawings, The Way I Am is filled with reflections on his greatest hits, previously unpublished lyric sheets, and other rare memorabilia. Providing his millions of fans with a personal tour of Eminem’s creative process, it is poised to be hailed in much the same way as Tupac’s The Rose that Grew from Concrete, Bob Dylan’s Chronicles, and Journals by Kurt Cobain.
