Eminem Goes Blonde and Opens up about Marshall Mathers LP 2
Going blonde again is only the lesser of world renowned rapper Eminem's news. He's about to release his brand new album, Marshall Mathers LP 2, and he is finally opening up about it.
“I don’t know if I ever feel totally great about a record when I put it out," he told Rolling Stone when asked how he feels about the release of his new album. "With every record that I put out, someone has literally got to come pry it from me because when I listen to my own music, I just hear flaws in it.”
“I feel like right now I’m probably working harder than I’ve ever worked in my life,” Em said. He also spoke about the album's name, saying, “Calling it The Marshall Mathers LP 2, obviously I knew that there might be certain expectations. Like, I wouldn’t want to just call it that just for the sake of calling it that. So I wanted to make sure that I had the right songs to be able to call it that.”
Also stating that the second Marshall Mathers is not a direct sequel to his masterpiece, Marshall Mathers LP, the 41-year-old stated, "So there’s not gonna be like, continuations of every song or anything like that. To me, it’s more about the vibe and the nostalgia. One of my favorite new things to do is experiment with new, older breakbeats and sounds and sh*t like that. You know, retro sh*t, and try to make it current, like bring it up to date.”
When Referring to his new track “Rap God,” Rolling Stone asks whether Eminem feels like he is on top, or as more of an underdog. He responded, “I think everything switches back and forth from hour to hour, day by day with me. That whole ‘Rap God’ record pretty much from top to bottom is tongue in cheek. So I mean, do I want to feel like that? Maybe sometimes.”
