But MTV News' 2010 Hottest MC in the Game also reveals he's considering 'taking a break.'
Eminem branched out on his hit comeback Recovery, taking a break from working mostly with mentor Dr. Dre and bringing in a whole new slate of producers who twisted up his sound and helped Slim Shady put together what is so far the best-selling album of 2010.
But after that brief detour, the Detroit MC is back to his old tricks, hooking up with Dre to record some new tracks. The rapper called in to Angela Yee's "The Morning After" show on the sixth anniversary of the launch of his Shade 45 Sirius satellite channel on Thursday and revealed that he and Dre are working on music together.
"I'm in the studio with Dre now, let's just say that," Em said, reluctant to cough up details on where the songs the pair are recording might end up. "Pretty soon he's going to make a beat and I might rap on it."
Dre, of course, is still working on his years-in-the-making purported rap finale, Detox, and when pressed to confirm that he's working on tracks from the album, Em said, "Other than that I can neither confirm nor deny."
Despite being on a major roll with Recovery, and his wildly received co-headlining dates with Jay-Z on the Home and Home Tour in Detroit and New York, it sounds like Em is slowing the train down again. He said he's "taking a break" for now, though he also revealed that he will release a third single from Recovery, though he declined to say which song it would be.
