Swizz Beats Reveals Relapse Details
Posted on November 26, 2008 by Jamie Slaughter
Eminem's Relapse is expected out in 2009, and unsurprisingly he will be working closely with both Dr Dre and 50 Cent, but little else has been revealed about the comeback from Slim Shady. Swizz beats dropped in for a talk with MTV recently, where he leaked a few more details about Eminem's new album and the direction it is heading towards. He also mentioned that he had submitted work on the production side for a follow up to one of Eminem's most successful singles.
"You know how 'Stan' ... was the big [song]?" Swizz asked MTV, referring to the obsessed-fan track which sampled Dido's "Thank You." "So I worked on part 2, and I think it was, like, totally genius."
Swizz told of how he has submitted five songs to the rapper, one of which he feels is destined to be a classic hit, which will feature Em, Dre and 50.
"I don't know the title yet, but it's classic," he said. "It's sounding big."
Swizz also commented that fans will definitely be happy with Em's new work, and that the album is likely to be released early next year, possibly as early as January / February.
"It's different," Swizz said. "Different sound, different mindframe. He's clear. But it's the Eminem that you missed, that you loved, that you need, especially right now in the industry, going into '09. He's coming back to take the cake."
The songs from Relapse will also touch more personal topics, Swizz told MTV.
