Eminem 'Refills' Relapse, Enlists 50 Cent & Just Blaze      
Posted: 11/19/2009 7:55:00 AM


Eminem will be re-releasing his latest album Relapse next month under a new title, Relapse: Refill.

According to Rap-Up, the album will feature seven new songs and will packaged as a double disc. The rapper tapped 50 Cent and Just Blaze to contribute to the new material.

Relapse: Refill will hit stores on December 22nd.

Eminem was initially slated to drop Relapse 2 next month but it looks like that will be hitting shelves in 2010.

**** UPDATE ****

MTV article:

Eminem is a man of his word. He promised fans he would drop off two doses of music this year, and it looks like it's happening. On December 21, the rhyme legend is putting out a new version of his Relapse LP, subtitled The Refill, according to RapRadar.com. It will include five brand-new songs as well as the hit "Forever" and "Taking My Ball," which was featured on the Eminem/Jay-Z "Renegade Edition" of "DJ Hero."

And Slim Shady said this is just a taste of what's to come. "I want to deliver more material for the fans this year like I originally planned," Em told the Web site. "Hopefully these tracks on The Refill will tide the fans over until we put out Relapse 2 next year."

Eminem has been working on Relapse 2 for several months now, and in October, he revealed that Just Blaze was one of the producers on the record. During an interview on his Shade 45 satellite radio show last month, he said the sequel will be different from the original.

"[The album] is gonna be a lot different than people expect," Eminem told DJ Tony Touch. "As far as the contrast from the last album to this one, I got a couple of tracks with [D12's] Mr. Porter, two tracks with him so far. Four, possibly five with Just Blaze. The overall basis of this record, I went back to songs that are more emotionally driven. The last record I made, I think I was concentrating more on spitting. On this album, I feel like there's some of that, but I went back to songs with [feelings] to them as opposed to just rap records."



RollingStone article (Em goes into slightly more detail):
As Rolling Stone reported in March, Eminem promised not one but two doses of the Dr. Dre-prescribed Relapse would be released in 2009, but with the scheduling of the first installment’s Refill, it appears Relapse 2 is now slotted for release in 2010. “I want to deliver more material for the fans this year like I originally planned. Hopefully these tracks on The Refill will tide the fans over until we put out Relapse 2 next year,” Eminem said. “I got back in with Dre and then a few more producers, including Just Blaze, and went in a completely different direction which made me start from scratch. The new tracks started to sound very different than the tracks I originally intended to be on Relapse 2, but I still want the other stuff to be heard.”

Eminem has reportedly been hard at work in recent months working on Relapse 2, hitting the studio with producers like Just Blaze and Mr. Porter, so 2 won’t be an all-Dr. Dre affair. “I definitely feel like I’m in a different space right now. With the last record, I think a lot of it had to do with me getting sober, my eyes being open again. With Relapse, I wanted to prove myself that I could still do it. The zany, loony, ridiculous shit, so a lot of that album is rapid-fire punch lines,” Em previously said of Relapse 2. “Now I’m at a point where I’m blessed enough to be in a position where I don’t need to put out records, but I want to.”

If he released this as an EP, it wouldn't feel so much like Interscope squeezing what they can out of one of their top sellers.

I like it when labels cheat the fans by making them pay twice for an album. I respond by illegally downloading the new tracks. No one really loses.

Of course. I mean, afterall... Interscope is the distributer... the financial backer. It's all business for them as a corperation. As for a strictly music standpoint... just between the artist and fans... it seems the only one who cares about that right now on the label is Bishop Lamont.

If the album is 10$ or less people might buy it but if it's more than that they can 4get it.  This shoulda been an EP or a digital release.  If Interscope wasn't to buy half of the shipments, I can only only see this doing 30K tops (and that's lieniant).  I know Em has a strong loyal fan base but fact is that ain't gonna stop people from using their much needed (recession) money on something else, especially when u can just download the 7 songs for free lol... it's pointless and they are gonna lose money from it.

Other sites are saying that this will "replace" RELAPSE 2.

Ehh.  I hope this doesn't actually replace "Relapse 2." My guess is that because "Relapse 2" was pushed back, they still wanted to release something around the same time frame that Relapse 2 was supposed to drop.  And if that's the case, I think this project would be okay for that.  But if this is actually supposed to replace "Relapse 2," I think that would kind of be a cheap cop out on Interscope's part to release a collection of half already-released material in lieu of an entirely new album.

someone just hook up the seven tracks on the 22nd lol.

by the way, these tracks must be average ass tracks for them not to make the Relapse II disc.

it's not like Eminem needs these 7 tracks to be amazing for fans, he has buzz at all times.

Some people are saying that there won't be a R2. If that's the case, than the 7 new tracks may be from the recording sessions w/ Mr. Porter and Just Blaze.

turns out your right

The re-release of Eminem’s fifth studio album includes seven bonus tracks, including the single “Forever”, also featuring Drake, Kanye West, and Lil Wayne (previously found on the More Than A Game soundtrack), “Taking My Ball” (also released only with the DJ Hero video game), and five never-before-heard tracks. “I want to deliver more material for the fans this year like I originally planned” Eminem says. “Hopefully these tracks on The Refill will tide the fans over until we put out Relapse 2 next year”.

WORD UP LF!

for real though, are the 5 new joints all the just blaze and eminem joints that were supposed to be for relapse 2?..who cares, ima download this shit, not even considered buying relapse, so no chance im coppin a refill after the initial version attempt. Though i have to admit i am interested in hearing what blaze and eminem cooked up. Lets see.

By the way, is this being done to help the sales of the original relapse, kinda milk that to the max or would these sales be considered seperate? regardless, more free money for interscope for doing pretty much nothing new.
 

TRG

Dawaun just said that the stuff on Refill are the tracks that were gonna be on the original Relapse II. (but he said dont quote him on that lol)

and the new Relapse II is the Just Blaze contribution.
