Shady Records President Paul Rosenburg confirmed to Billboard.com this week that Eminem is “far into the process” of recording his untitled eighth studio album. He also noted “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.”
Paul and Shady have a lot on deck in 2013 with Yelawolf’s sophomore album and 50 Cent’s “Street King Immortal”, both expected to be out in the first half of this year, so lets hope everything lives up to expectations!

Following the release of Elzhi‘s “ELmatic” which was regarded as one of the best tribute projects to a classic album ever, the former Slum Village lyricist returns this summer with a brand new worldwide tour, and news about a forthcoming solo album which will be released this autumn. Elzhi released ELmatic as the sophomore to his debut “The Preface” (2008), which was the catalyst for a UK and European Tour towards the end of 2011. Elzhi hasn’t released the name of the new album, but promises an autumn release date, and Hip-Hop Kings will be posting the updates and news as soon as it becomes available.
