Last night, Eminem’s Twitter displayed a message saying that Relapse 2 was no more, presumably because of a name change. It made sense because at first Relapse 2 was going to be comprised of all the songs that were created at the same time as Relapse, but that didn’t end up on the first project. But then they went and threw all of those songs on The Refill. Now that (what was once) Relapse 2 has started to take the shape of a full body of work, they’ve decided a name-change will reflect that this is now a project that can stand on its own, but is still somehow linked to Em’s last album.
The first single is produced by Jim Jonsin, and as of right now, the album also has production by Just Blaze, Boi-1da and DJ Khalil.
