Get Ready for 50 Cent, Eminem, and Dre
G-Unit's Tony Yayo and DJ Whoo Kid reveal plans behind new projects for hip-hop's power trio. Plus: Eminem unveils the title and first single for his album.
It’s been years since Eminem, Dr. Dre, and 50 Cent collectively ruled both the hip-hop game and the charts. But according to G-Unit’s Tony Yayo and DJ Whoo Kid, the “three-headed monster” is set to return — with Eminem’s album arriving shortly after 50 Cent’s Before I Self Destruct, which drops in December. What’s more is last night in radio interview with Sirius Satellite Radio’s Shade 45, Eminem unveiled the title of his new set (Relapse) and its first single (“I’m Having a Relapse”).

“My reality is 50, then Eminem, because I know that’s definitely coming out next [after 50]… Eminem is definitely next. You heard it from my f*cking mouth.” Whoo Kid told MTV.com. As for Dre’s long-awaited Detox, well, fans may have to wait a little longer, says Kid. “[It’s] iffy on Dre. But Eminem is definitely coming out.”
“I heard four joints, and I tried to Bluetooth it, and I got caught at the door,” Kid said of Slim Shady’s new tunes. “There’s no way to get an Eminem joint unless they officially leak it…You’re gonna be wilding — I wish I could play it out my head right now.”
“50 album and an Em album and a Dre album. That’s the focus,” Yayo added. And after Dre’s Detox drops — whenever that is — the trio are also planning a return to the stage with a “G-Unit/Shady/Aftermath tour,” Yayo explained.
Dre, seriously, hurry up!
