Eminem has hit back at reports he has retired from rap, telling a New York radio station he's in the studio working on a new album.
The Without Me hitmaker interrupted a radio chat with pal and collaborator 50 Cent on Hot 97 on Wednesday (12Sep07) to reveal he's hard at work on his first studio album in three years.
Eminem, who appears briefly on 50's new album Curtis, says, "It feels good right now, the energy of the label. For a while, I didn't want to go back to the studio.
"I went through some personal things. I'm coming out of those personal things."
