Rapper confirms sessions have begun...

Eminem has confirmed that he has begun recording sessions for his next studio album.

Eminem remains a near peerless global icon. Capable of drawing massive crowds at each show, the Detroit rapper commands an audience which dwarfs almost any other comparable figure in hip hop.

If an interview with Hot 97 is to be believed, a new album from the seminal rapper might not be far away. Chatting with presenter Peter Rosenberg, Eminem explained that recording sessions recently got under way.

"I'm kinda getting into my next record a little bit," he explained (via Rolling Stone). If sessions are successful, the new album would be Eminem's first solo record since 2010's 'Recovery'.

Alongside this, Eminem is seemingly working on the new album from hip hop supergroup Slaughterhouse. Numbering Royce da 5'9", Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Crooked I, Eminem is set to oversee sessions as executive producer.

"He'll come in and say 'Maybe change a line here, change a verse there, maybe move this around, let me add an instrument here,'" Royce told Rolling Stone. "That's just what an executive producer does . . . From day one, Marshall was hands-on."

Here's 'Without Me'.
