The other announcement is arguably bigger. Eminem is working on his next solo album, which he’ll completely delve into after the completion of Slaughterhouse’s second LP.

Shutting down competition for Christmas. With Jay Z most likely dropping an album around the same time, and Kanye and Lil Wayne, its going to be another hot year for hip hop.
