Eminem dismayed by new album ‘Relapse’ leak

Rapper speaks about online leak of his next effort

Eminem has spoken of his dismay at finding out that songs from his forthcoming new album, ‘Relapse’, have leaked online.

One track, originally thought to be called ‘Number One’, leaked last week (December 7).

Speaking to Billboard.com, Eminem said he felt “really heated” after hearing that the track – which he named ‘Crack A Bottle’ – was online.

“It wasn’t close to finished,” he said, “and it even has me doing guide vocals for Dre as a suggestion of how he could lay his verses down. It’s like someone catches you peeping in your window before you got the Spider Man costume all zipped up! Nobody is supposed to see that.”

Eminem had previously confirmed that ‘Relapse’ is set to be released in early 2009.
