With the release of 50 Cent’s new album, Curtis, a mere month away, we sent an editor to interview the rapper yesterday. The full, juicy chat will appear in an upcoming issue of Blender, but there’s one bit that’s too exciting to leave un-shared until then. When we asked Fifty, So what the hell is going on with Eminem? he told us, â€œHeâ€™s got a new album coming. Heâ€™s not gonna tell people that, but heâ€™s making new music. Iâ€™ve heard a few songs, and itâ€™s hot. He wonâ€™t tell nobody heâ€™s working on a new album, but Iâ€™ll tell you: heâ€™s working on new music. And once he locks into it, like, â€˜This is my favorite shit,â€™ itâ€™s gonna come out.â€ Is it angry Em? Wacky Em? â€œBoth,â€ says Fifty. â€œThe whole range. You know, Michael Jordan was supposed to play basketball. Floyd Mayweather was meant to box. And Eminem was meant to rap.â€ Amen!
