Eminem New Song 2017 Update: Is the “Rap God” too busy with other things to work on another album?
It has been three years since Eminem came out with ‘Marshall Mathers LP 2’. Fans have been looking forward for his next album dubbed “Success”…although it looks like they have to wait.
According to Ecumenical News, the album release may be moved to 2017 instead of 2016 because there was no official announcement yet. The article also states that the album reportedly has 21 songs with collaborations from famed artists like Adele, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Rihanna. These rumors have garnered mixed reactions from fans. There are some who are excited while there are those who are doubtful that so many collaborations could happen in one album.
No Eminem new song 2017? What is he up to?
Eminem has been making appearances in other artists’ concerts. One notable appearance was during fellow rapper Drake’s Summer Sixteen tour in Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. After performing their 2009 hit “Summer”, Eminem came up the stage, shocking fans.
In addition to that, Eminem also performed “The Hills” by The Weeked and the first live of his song “Fack” in his 2005 compilation “Curtain Call: The Hits” in Lollapalooza, Brazil.
His recent Instagram posts also indicated that he was doing philanthropic work as well. The Marshall Mathers foundation collaborated with Flint Community Schools and Kids in Need Foundation to donate backpacks filled with school supplies to students. Dave Smith, the executive director of the non-profit organization Kids in Need Foundation, approached Eminem for help and the rapper provided a check to buy school supplies for the children.
Artist’s Block: Another reason for the delay?
Aside from the side activities, theories that Eminem was simply uninspired to write songs also sprouted. According to Australian Network, it can be that the rapper was taking his time in creating new content for his upcoming album. For a rapper whose career has been established all throughout the years, writing songs is not an easy thing to do. Inspiration is the key to creating great rap lyrics and sync it to a matching beat.
Although the rumors of his upcoming album had stirred both his fans and the music industry, Eminem remained mum to the rest of the world and did not give any confirmation about the release date.
