As previously reported Slim Shady is already working on a follow up to the album, Relapse 2 due for release later this year.

Eminem said: "A lot of people were expecting Relapse to drop last year - I was one of them."

"We were on such a roll; we wound up with a ton of new music produced by Dre.

"Putting out Relapse 2 will let everyone get all of the best stuff."
