Eminem's album delay

Eminem's album is unlikely to be released until next year because the rapper is being too "obsessive-compulsive" about it

Eminem's album is unlikely to be released until next year.

The rapper's hotly-anticipated new record - which was originally scheduled to be available in December - has been delayed because Eminem is being too "obsessive-compulsive" about it.

A source said: "Eminem has been through a lot. He is being a perfectionist and is completely obsessive-compulsive about this album. There's a 50-50 chance it will be done by the end of this year - but most likely it'll be the first quarter of next year.

"But it's worth waiting for - it's great."

Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, confirmed earlier this year he is working on new material, the first since his 2005 greatest hits compilation 'Curtain Call'.

He said: "I always do side projects and produce for artists on my label. I'm concentrating on my own stuff right now - just banging out tracks. The more I keep producing, the better it seems I get."


The hip hop superstar returns to perform 'My Name Is' and 'The Real Slim Shady', along with recent hits 'Monster' and 'Rap God' to his legions of fans. All you other Slim Shadys are just imitating.
