Eminem (http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/about/Eminem) says his comeback album will have a "lot of material" after five months of solid work on the record with Dr. Dre. As previously reported, the set is titled "Relapse" and is expected before the end of the year via Interscope.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, Eminem said, "For the last five months I've been working pretty much straight with Dre. There's going to be a lot of material, more so than I've had on an album with him producing before."

He added, "Obviously his beats are insane but aside from that I can rap, I can write and not worry about what the beat has to sound like and how loud a snare drum is. All those things are taken care of for me. I feel like a spoiled rapper. I get to pick and choose everything."

The rapper said he has no plans to tour at present and, referring to his previous success, has "no desire to be that big again."

Asked about his voting intentions next month, Eminem said, "Yeah, I will vote for Barack Obama. I can't get too political honestly because I don't know enough about everything to know what's going on.


"I know we're going into a recession and pardon the cliche, but we need something to change. I think Barack would be a breath of fresh air to get what's left of the Bush administration out the door."

Eminem's memoir, "The Way I Am," hits stores internationally this week.


...could be nice.

did em and royce ever truely squash it? ... it seems like royce kind of still holds a grudge ...

i hope his new shit isn't too much like his old shit either ... i don't want to hear him in his mid 30s rapping like he did before it wouldn't sound right ... like all those old rappers coming out rapping how hard they are

he's a dope story teller i wouldn't mind hearing some story rap ... i donno what to expect from him though

If I get songs the quality of Mosh, Like Toy Soldiers or Yellow Brick Road, I'm happy.
