With the release date for his new album only a couple weeks away (November 5th), Eminem sat down with Rolling Stone magazine and discussed his new album “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” (MMLP2). Eminem talks about the expectations of the album and more below.

Calling it The Marshall Mathers LP 2, obviously I knew that there might be certain expectations. I wouldn’t want to call it that just for the sake of calling it that. I had to make sure that I had the right songs – and just when you think you got it, you listen and you’re like, ‘Fuck, man! I feel like it needs this or that,’ to paint the whole picture.

It’s not necessarily a sequel, as much as it is a revisitation. So there’s not gonna be, like, continuations of every old song on there or anything like that. To me, it’s more about the vibe, and it’s more about the nostalgia.

He goes on to talk about producer Rick Rubin below.

Getting with him was like, ‘Holy shit!’ As many genres of music that he is able to fuck with, he’s like Yoda. I couldn’t do it. You sit me there with a rock group, I don’t know the first fucking thing about banging on the drums.
