Eminem Calls "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" A Revisitation

Eminem talks about his upcoming album, saying it is not necessarily a sequel as much as it is a revisitation.

Eminem, who is readying the release of The Marshall Mathers LP 2, recently discussed the album's expectations.

"Calling it The Marshall Mathers LP 2, obviously I knew that there might be certain expectations," Eminem says in an upcoming article by Rolling Stone. "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."

Eminem continued, saying the album is "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," Eminem says. "To me, it's more about the vibe, and it's more about the nostalgia."

Eminem Discusses Respect For Rick Rubin's Range 

For The Marshall Mathers LP 2, Eminem is working with his longtime producer-mentor Dr. Dre. He has also added Rick Rubin as a producer for the upcoming album, a producer who has worked in a variety of genres with artists such as Red Hot Chilli Peppers, System of a Down, LL Cool J and Beastie Boys. 

"Getting with him was like, 'Holy shit.'" says Eminem. "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."

Eminem is slated to release The Marshall Mathers LP 2 November 5. The album is slated to include Skylar Grey, Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar.

    He's done this for commercial reasons. A lot of people with highly-rated hip-hop albums have done so. But don't be too quick to write it off - whilst this has Rihanna, the first had Dido. Wait and see.

    Godfather 50 is one of the most coldest ruthless kingpins the world has ever seen The way he had Juelz and Jimmy at his shows while the Cam beef was goin on was just epic Our Godfather will break you down psychologically Jimmy Henchman crying in the pen like a bitch after he tried to go up against The Godfather The GAME is a bum being sued by bums, he should have never tried to front on our Godfather 50 takes no prisoners, not even lame white nerds on youtube, even they face the wrath of the menace You have to admire the moves of the The Godfather And all of you who dare talk shit about 50, I guarantee if you were in a room with him one on one, you wudnt say a word, he'd box ur head off.


    An old man that tries to make pop rap music. its just embarrassing. Holy grail all over again.

  • Cealix

    I don't even know what the hell "pop" means anymore on this website. Em used to sing in his courses a lot but no one called him a pop artist, but when he has other pop artist do it for him, he's considered pop...? I think I've figured it out: Once you've had a lot of platinum albums, you're either considered pop, washed up, old news, and/or irreverent right? But if you put out an album once every couple of years because you're constantly having trouble with the government and/or money issues, you're a legend, right?

  • pp

    Than why call this album the MMLP2 as if it was a sequel? It has nothing that sounds like The MMLP with the 3 songs that are out. This album won't contain the same kind of material, it won't have the same vibe, won't have the same flow, it will have lot's of pop features, basically it will have nothing to do with the MMLP and will sound nothing like it!!! He probably chose this name because it's his album that was the most successfull and he wants to make sure this one sales. So what if he mentions a couple of things that were talked about in the first MMLP? This album will have nothing to do with it and calling it the MMLP2 is a big fail and a good way to disapoint his fans who were really hyped because of this title. This album will be a massive fail...It would probably not be if he had called it something else so people wouldn't have so much expectations. Big fail, these are one of the worst singles he's released for any album and the album will probably be his worst too. I'll listen to the album, and if it does indeed suck, well he's officially done in my book at least.

    • jerry tallsack

      few bars from Eminem's rap god: Oh, he's too mainstream. Well, that's what they do when they get jealous, they confuse it. It's not hip hop, it's pop, cause I found a hella way to fuse with rock, shock rap with Doc.

      Also the album was hip hop, not Pop Recovery style bullshit. And it didn't feature 5-6 different pop acts.

    • pp

      You do realise Elton John wasn't on the album, don't you retard? Elton John only replaced Dido for a song at the grammys in which Eminem was trying to prove he wasn't a homophobe. Dido was the only pop singer and the song was a classic because it had some real meaning and content. He put dido on there for a reason. It was actually samples of a song she had released before. It was no Rihanna or Pink type bullshit. The album had D12, Dr dre, Sticky Fingaz etc.. If you can't admit the difference, than you sir are an idiot.

    • blahblah

      Pop like Dido and Elton John you mean? =) Oh that was different you say? Shuddup...you'll be the first one dying, rushing to hear it.

  • imho

    idk why all the hte for eminem rihanna collabs..some of ems best work was with pop singers but it is disappointing seeing only 1 rapper compared to 5-6 pop stars. doesnt make sense if your trying to 'bring it back to hiphop'..well see.

      Nice reply, i agree. As far as the singles go, i'm very dissapointed too. Let's hope the gems are in the album and not the singles. We can at least expect a couple of dope songs. Usually his singles aren't nearly as good most of the songs on his albums. Let's hope it's the same with this one. The many pop features do bother me a lot though. I don't really expect much from this album really, way less than any of his albums. I at least hope i can really enjoy 3 or 4 songs.

    As I see it, MMLP was Eminem hating his new status as a star whereas MMLP2 will be Eminem assuming himself as a PopStar.

    • Anonymous

      He's known worldwide. He's the most selling artist of the past decade. He is a part of pop culture, there I can safely say he is a popstar.

    • uu

      Technically he's not a pop star because he's one of the most lyrical rappers out there. Pop stars don't focus on rhyming words. But a lot of his beats and songs are more pop i have to agree.

  • industry insider

    Eminem is making a wack album on purpose to make kenny look like a descent lyricist. Interscope and their marketing schemes. Lol

    • ll

      But again, you are probably a 16 year old teenager who knows nothing about rhyming skills and hiphop. You probably wore diapers when Eminem came out too.

    • ll

      I know you might be a hater Crip4life and i can tell by all of the comments you post on here hating about Eminem. I'm no stan, but you do realise Eminem could have retired 10 years ago? Do you also realise that he really doesn't need more money and probably doesn't care about having a couple more millions? Also, how is he not passionate or hungry? Why would he even waste his time going to a BET rap cypher? Or do freestyles? Why would he even release an album with Royce da 5'9 just spitting technical rhymes and shit knowing it's not going to sell? Untalented? If he really was untalented, why do so many people like his music? And if that to you doesn't matter, than why does he has so many accolades from the most respectable rappers in the game praising him about his lyrical skills? Nas is not nearly at the level EM is at, and if Nas had sold so many records, over 100 mili like EM did, i'm pretty sure he wouldn't give a shit about going to a BET cypher or innovating and trying to make new music. It's not a question about money, if you really think Em is still in for the money than you are a retard.

    • Crip4Life

      ever heard of main stream rap music?? notice how the majority of them suck to people that actually know music? lol Eminem is CLEARLY untalented but he makes so much much money because all of his fans are retarded and brainwashed by the mainstream media...he doesnt give a fuk about his fans lol... all the fans are doing is supplying his pocket with cash that he always raps and yaps about... Nas on the other hand he never changed he was hungry when he sold over 20 mill and still is..

    Admin you gotta come in here and clear some of these posts up, a lot of racism going on. How can possibly you tell a persons colour by the music they listen to??!! Has nobody seen the Art of Rap? Like it or not, Eminem is one of the best rappers to ever do it. Although some of his songs may feature an artist who is considered to be "Pop" - such as Rihanna or P!nk - not one of these songs can be considered a "Pop" record. Eminem has always said exactly what he wanted to on a record and has never pandered to any sort of "Pop" audience. I'm looking forward to this album. One of the few Rap artists these days that I still get excited about when they release a new record. I can bet that for all those who are talking bad about the album, whoever YOUR favourite rapper is, they're certainly worried about Eminem dropping this record.

    Been reading a lot of ppl hating on Em lately even after dropping rap god, idk how you can call yourself a hip hop head or even say you have any knowledge about hip hop and not respect what he's doing on that song, have you actually listened to the words? Give it a few more spins, flow, delivery, lyrics were crazy idk what you're looking for from him. Lyrically he would murder all your favorite rappers, yes even King Kendrick, and that's not a shot at him I think Kendrick is one of better dudes out there lately but idk just a bit confused on these comments it's either hate or love, where's the inbetween? I wasn't feeling Bezerk a whole lot Survival ok but Rap God is just insane.

    Revisitation would imply a return to 2000's style beats and dissing, rather than collaborating with pop artists. Revisiting would mean another d12 track and maybe a dido feature. Revisiting would mean including skit, not rihanna features. If it is a revisitation of anything, it would be revisiting recovery.

      thats your opinion and no one gives a shit about it. you mean nothing to anyone in here, we dont know u. your worthless compare to someone who is as rich as eminem. he hasnt released one pop song yet so where is the comment coming from? i dont see any just loose it like songs, no real slim shady songs and the song stan with pop star dido was an amazing song. i dont get u haters, you obviously dont get the music industry and cant just listen to something with a clear open mind. a rap artist today releases a pure hardcore hip hop album with no pop or anything on it and it sells shit, artist makes no money and the time to make the album is wasted on poor sales. hes got like 20 songs on this album and u heard 3 all of which are singles for radio. its rare for a great hip hop song to come out nowadays its all lil wayne artists and 2 chains and shit like that, i thought all three eminem songs were decent.. one is a old school beastie boys like song, survival sounds like it came off bad meets evil album, and rap god is 6 minutes of straight rhyme styles that change with complex lyrics. none of them are pop in my opinion.

  • Eminem sucks donkey testicles!

    Most Eminem fans are airheaded teenagers, degenerates, rednecks, racists, people who have some sort psychiatric disorder like anti-social personality disorder or borderline personality disorder, homophobes, criminals and people who only listen to pop music. 98 percent of his fan base fits into one or more of those categories.

      where the hell are u getting your statements from you jackass. 98% of his fans are this and that,your made up statistics show how beyond dumb you are. if criminals listen to his songs then wouldnt that make him the opposite of a sell out and hed get tons of respect in the streets? pop music is just any top 40 stuff basically since pop means popular. i never understood why all top lyricists in the game respect eminem but people like u just find the need to hate on them all who become popular(pop)... fucking jealously of success? probably the same people who hate on companies like apple,bose,beats by dre etc.. because they are giant successes while your a failure and have to put them down to feel better about yourself and your pathetic life. im so tired of people hating on success, back in the day everyone loved michael jordan, today lots of people hate Lebron despite the fact he hasnt done anything wrong.. jordan was cocky as shit when he was in his 20's, gambled tons of money etc.. todays america really is a shitty place with people like u throwing negativity into it.. if you dont like his music fine move on and stop wasting our fucking time, get a life seriously. you came into this article and typed all your info and email and comment just to hate on someones music you dont like. congrats your life is shit

  • slums

    come on Slim. I knew ever since the tracklist was out, that there would be some talk like that - "it's not a sequel", "it's a whole other thing" & shit. You name the boat like that, you gotta make sure it's gonna sail the same direction. Now you got Rihanna on board again - WTF? It's just disrespectful for many fans. Another pop album for everyone to swallow & forger in a year. Guess Interscope's dick is way too long to get off.

      To me it sounds like you guys have listened to the album already because you guys seem to know 100% that is a pop album. Wait for it to come out before you slag it off. Also, how many pop artists do you see making jokes about homosexuals? Not many right? Actually NONE.

    • Jermaine Please STFU

      You are in here glory-riding for Em like a mug, but just be a little constructive here.. why wouldn't he listen to the album? Once you heard the TITLE of the album, we all got in our heads an image of what we think the album will sound like based off the initial MMLP, alone! So please, shut your cock glazer for a minute! People are going to say it's wack regardless, and people will say it's what Hip-Hop has been missing. Get off Em's jock strap for a sec.

    • Jermaine

      It's no point of listening to the album because you already have the negative mind set that it's not going to be good. That's what different about music these days. They give the fans to much info(tracklistings,album covers,song leaks,production credits, features, etc.) which creates an opinion before the album is even on shelves. As for me I go into albums with a clear mind. When Em's album drops I gurantee the comment section is going to be filled with people saying"I already knew it was going to be wack". Yeah because it was wack before it came out.

They're legendary rappers but because theyre popular they're bad. Oh, and that goes for kendrick too, he just made a song with robin thicke. I guess that makes him terrible.
