Eminem Speaks on Grammy Nominations and Leaked Singles




Shady reacts to his Grammy nominations, and explains the trio of leaked songs that are most likely the byproduct of a 2009 trip to Hawaii with Dr. Dre.

Eminem’s Recovery is currently ranked as the seventh album on Billboard magazine’s Hot 200, and it’s spent 27 weeks on the chart. Recovery is one of three Em albums occupying space on the Hot 200, as the double-platinum offerings Relapse (184) and Curtain Call: The Hits (155) also continue to chart. Eminem has gone on record many times explaining that he was unsatisfied with the direction Relapse took, going so far as to address it on “Not Afraid.” In a recent interview with Billboard, Em addresses the material he made between 2007 and 2010, which would presumably include recently leaked tracks such as “Syllables,” “Cocaine” and “Difficult.”

“I probably recorded about 15 songs,” Eminem told Billboard, recounting a 2009 trip to Hawaii with Dr. Dre. “And I think the latter half of those, probably about the last three or four felt lik, ‘OK, I’m starting to get back to normal again. This feels more like me now.’”

While Recovery boasts international sales of over 5.6 million, the album has enjoyed critical success too in the form of four Grammy nominations.

“I’m obviously happy with the way that people have received the album,” Em added. “As far as what I’ve accomplished with it, I don’t know. I’m just happy to be here. I’m happy to be able to have a career as long as I’ve had.”

It appears that same happiness could also spread to fans in the UK, as Eminem is reportedly in negotiations to co-headline this year’s V Festival with The Arctic Monkeys. The British tabloid The Daily Star cited an unnamed source while reporting that Rihanna was rumored to join Em for a live version of “Love the Way You Lie,” should he finalize the deal to co-headline the outdoor festival. Lineups for the V Fest are still somewhat fluid, but this year’s festival will take place in Staffordshire, West Midlands, and Essex, East England in August.

More information is available at the official V Fest site.

Eminem is obviously not like the way he was back in the day but he's still killing each verse he writes.. Greatest rapper alive in my opinion.
