Eminem beats Fiddy for Dre’s attention

50 Cent has revealed that his new album, ‘Before I Self Destruct’, is currently being delayed by Eminem’s comeback LP, ‘Relapse’.

The problem is Dr Dre, who is working on both albums in a producer capacity. It seems Dre can only cope with one protégé at a time, and he’s prioritising Slim Shady.

Fiddy told Associated Press: “Right now I’m on the train and the Em choo-choo car goes first. See, what happens is, I think that people forget that I’m actually Eminem’s artist because I’ve had so much success on my own and I moved away from it… I said my goal was to fit in with Eminem and Dr Dre”.

“I didn’t mean to fit in under Eminem and Dr Dre – I meant to fit in as an equal party. And that’s what I achieved over this time period. So, because Dre is mixing Em’s album, Em will be completed entirely before we get a chance to finish up the pieces me and Dre did together”.
