Chris Rock added fuels to rumor that suggested he would collaborate with Eminem on the rapper's new album. Appearing on fuse TV's new show "United States of Hip Hop", Rock was asked whether or not he made contributions to Eminem's upcoming album.
Rock didn't confirm or deny the question, saying, "Uh, I can't really say." Referring to his appearance on Kanye West's 2010 album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy", the comedian added, "I was on the Kanye record -maybe I'm on the Eminem record. You never know."
The rumor about collaboration surfaced last week after Rock tweeted a picture of him and someone who looked like Eminem working in a studio. The photo came with a caption read, "In the studio with Em don't sleep."
Rumor about Eminem's new album has been swirling for months. Back in March, Eminem's longtime mentor, Dr. Dre, had a radio interview and confirmed that the Detroit-native rapper "is finishing up his project."
Later in April, the President of Eminem's Shady Records, Paul Rosenberg, said, "We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He's been working on it for some time. It's safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we're not exactly sure when. We've got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we're trying to see what else lines up."
