Eminem Calls Off ‘Relapse 2’

Unless his Twitter account has been hacked, it appears as though Eminem has canceled plans to release the sequel to 2009’s Relapse. “There is no Relapse 2,” the rapper cryptically tweeted in the early hours of Wednesday morning (April 14). No further explanation was given.

Slim Shady hinted at a major announcement on Twitter last month. “And don’t worry. Some big news is coming. Soon,” the tweet read.

Eminem’s seventh studio LP Relapse 2 had been anticipated for release this year. There is speculation that the material he has been recording could be packaged under a different title.
