Brookline Stand Up

Guess Who’s Back, Back Again? (In June)

Looks like Eminem thought we needed a little controversy.
(Props if you got the reference, sorry I know it’s corny.)

I read earlier today on hiphopdx that Eminem announced via Twitter that he was stopping production of his highly-anticipated follow-up album Relapse 2. Of course, as a public relations major, I immediately thought: another Eminem publicity stunt. I mean, Relapse sold 608,000 copies in its first WEEK, so it wasn’t surprising that a simple tweet saying “There is no Relapse 2” caused a ruckus.

He later clarified that rather than sacking the project altogether, he’s just changing the name of the follow-up album to Recovery. Phew. And, according to hip hop producer Just Blaze, it’s going to be sick.

Well, if this whole thing was supposed to be a publicity stunt, it worked. Not only has it generated significant media coverage surrounding the album and its impending June 22 release, but I know it’s gotten me to re-visit my old Em tracks and wonder what to expect from him next. He’s a pretty unpredictable guy.

What are you hoping to hear on Eminem’s Recovery?
