Eminem carved out such a powerful position in the music industry that it will never disappear. Slim Shady’s albums are consistently in high demand, and fans eagerly anticipate every new release. There was a lot of excitement surrounding the release of Relapse’s sequel. but Eminem just confirmed that there will be no Relapse 2.
The lost Holy Grail of “Relapse 2” is one of the most enduring myths in the Eminem fandom. The existence of the project was widely hinted at by management, but it was never published. Marshall has now put these expectations to rest.
Paul Rosenberg sat down with Em during his Paul Pod and asked Eminem how he felt about “Relapse,” which was certainly one of Em’s most cursed ventures. Marshall himself was harshly critical of it. Em may not be as brutal now, but the Relapse atmosphere is not something he wishes to revive.
“I don’t have a problem with some of the rhymes, and I don’t have a problem with some of the verse’s choices lyrically. It’s just the accents. I feel like I sounded so demented in that sh*t, I got cemented in that sh*t. And then I painted back, b*tch, and then I went to scratch itch. It was literally like a f*cking awakening, and it happened in f*cking 5-10 minutes. Listening to some of my older sh*t and going. I need to feel like this again. On the first song I did, the one Mr. Porter did, On Fire”.
Paul wanted Marshall to be explicit about the possibility of a sequel to Relapse. Everyone knows that he had a lot of songs recorded. There must be something left after “Relapse: Refill” Deluxe and enormous leaks. Eminem doesn’t try to deny it. But he is also extremely clear: “Relapse 2” will not be released.
“There is probably enough to make another Relapse 2. But they are terrible songs. And if they didn’t even make it to the album on ‘Relapse’. And you know how I feel about Relapse. It should say something. There is no ‘Relapse 2’.
The fans had high anticipation that Relapse 2 would be released shortly, but Slim Shady has put an end to those hopes. What do you think, should Relapse 2 be released? Let us know in the comments. For further updates, stay tuned to Thirsty.
