Eminem is working on new material and planning a comeback, according to his former protégé 50 Cent.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat, 50 Cent said Eminem was planning to return from his musical hiatus soon.

"You'll be seeing him shortly. He's working. I spent the weekend at his house. Even though he tries to relax and stay home it's impossible for him to stay in," he declared.

50 Cent suggested, however, that Eminem was not happy with much of the new material he's recorded recently.

"A lot of material he wrote prior to this [announcement] is being scrapped. He's got to feel like it's just happened, it's new and it's current. That's just how he is creatively as an artist."

The Detriot rapper hasn't released an album since 2004's 'Encore'.

Earlier this year, Eminem phoned into his own US radio station, Shade 45, pretending to be an unsigned artist in order to prank call LL Cool J, who was a guest on the station.

He went on to reveal his identity to Cool J, before telling listeners: "Everything is good. I'm just in the studio right now working on songs and stuff like that."
