Eminem working with DJ Premier

That’s right. Perhaps having Premo spin for Shady 2.0’s infamous BET Cypher rubbed off on Eminem. According to DJ Premier, speaking on Sway in the Morning, he’s headed to Detroit for some serious recording sessions with none other than Marshall Mathers.

If this actually leads to released material, this is great news for fans of Slim Shady and hip hop alike. While the MC’s lyrical skills have improved steadily over the past few years (save some lazy guests appearances), his taste in music has seemingly degraded, preferring to work with mainstream pop rap producers, rather than true beatsmiths.

Hence, Premo could be exactly what Mathers needs. Chances are we won’t hear any tracks from these sessions for months, but perhaps we finally have a reason to get excited over Eminem again.
