Eminem is back in the studio working on his sixth studio album, the follow-up to 2004’s Encore.
“Em is excited,” rapper Bishop Lamont told Entertainment Weekly. “He’s been quiet too long, and he’s got a lot to get off his chest.”
The Detroit-born MC lost his best friend Proof in a 2006 shooting. “He went through what he had to go through, and now he’s been able to take all the pain and stress and put it out in his music,” Lamont added.
No release date has been set for the album.
