Eminem feels like "a spoilt rapper" after handing production duties of his latest LP RELAPSE over to Dr. Dre.
The Stan hitmaker is set to release his first album since his greatest hits compilation in 2005 - which many feared was an end to his career.
The 35-year-old took a break from music to concentrate on producing - but is now set to release Relapse by the end of the year (08).
Eminem admits he is excited about his new record, insisting he can't wait to "get back out there".
He tells the BBC, "For the last five months I've been working pretty much straight with Dre. There's going to be a lot of material, more so than I've had on an album with him producing before."
And he has handed the technical responsibility of producing his new album to Dre, so he doesn't have to worry about it.
He adds, "Obviously his beats are insane but aside from that I can rap, I can write and not worry about what the beat has to sound like and how loud a snare drum is.
"All those things are taken care of for me. I feel like a spoilt rapper. I get to pick and choose everything."
