Rapper Eminem explicitly denied his retirement reports, telling MTV News: "When I say I'm taking a break, I'm taking a break from my music to go in the studio and produce my other artists and put their albums out. That's called taking a break for me."
In his further denial, Em claims he would one day for sure retire from recording and touring yet he insists, "I never said Encore was my last album. I never said anything yet. I don't know what I'm doing yet. Nothing is definite, you know what I'm saying? Nothing is written in stone."
