The end of this year may witness the releases from big artists in the Hip-Hop realm. Eminem, according to some reports will drop his highly-anticipated album since 2004's "Encore" in relatively the same time when 50 Cent and Dr. Dre release their own efforts.
Former G-Unit affiliate Sha Money XL said on his blog that Eminem's record will be called "The Empack" and that it will come before year 2009. At the same time he announced that 50 will release his "Before I Self Destruct" and Dr. Dre will drop his long-delayed album "Detox". All albums are backed up by Interscope Records and the first release is slated to arrive in the second week of 2008. In that case, 50's LP which is scheduled to arrive on December 9, is expected to be the first.
On a somewhat contrary report, News of the World revealed exclusively last week that Eminem's record will still be titled "King Mathers". But the estimated time of release matches, which is before this year wraps up. "It's exciting times and, of course, there's massive expectation surrounding this new record," a source told the site. "But the fans need not worry about its quality. Most of the music's being mastered at the moment. There's a real belief the album will go stellar."
Dre's "Detox", similar to Eminem's LP has not had any specific street date yet, but is said to follow in the next two weeks.
