[artist id="1061"]Dr. Dre[/artist], [artist id="502642"]Eminem[/artist] and [artist id="860639"]50 Cent[/artist] — dubbed "the three-headed monster" by the G-Unit star — are all set to put out albums within weeks of one another this year. And, according to 50, the rollout plan should be starting very soon.
Fif told HollyScoop.com that Em's album is "almost done."
"[He's] currently mixing his album right now," Fif said. "So it won't be more than maybe two weeks before [the label] starts figuring out the scheduling of the release of his actual project."
Eminem's upcoming album, Relapse, will feature the single "Crack a Bottle." The song, previously labeled "Number One," leaked on numerous mixtapes and then popped up again online earlier this month with Dre and 50 contributing to the number. Dre spit the already-existing second verse, and Fif landed cleanup duty.
50 said he's planning to be "all over" Relapse. "You don't think I'll take advantage of that opportunity for everybody to look at me and listen to me?" he asked. "Yes, I will."
The Queens rapper is also putting the finishing touches on his next album, Before I Self Destruct. 50 just put out the single "I Get It In," produced by Dr. Dre. The song follows his underground track "Play This on the Radio," on which the bullish star takes shots at [artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist].
Dre's long-awaited Detox album is also slated to be released soon. The super-producer has broken plenty of promises about the album and at one point said he was shelving it completely. But at the 2007 Video Music Awards, the West Coast hip-hop architect proclaimed Detox would, in fact, finally see the light of day.
All three LPs were among our most-anticipated albums of 2009.
