The 'Rap God' star says the album is more of a 'revisitation' of the original record.
Eminem has teased his new album 'The Marshall Mathers LP' and clarified that it is "not a sequel" but more of a "revisitation" to his 2000 release.
The 'Berzerk' rapper says it continues "the vibe" of his originally release and explains that he wouldn't have titled the record as 'The Marshall Mathers LP' without thinking seriously about it first.
"[It's] not necessarily a sequel," the US rapper revealed to Rolling Stone this month. "As much as it is a revisitation.
"So there's not gonna be, like, continuations of every old song on there or anything like that," Eminem added. "To me, it's more about the vibe and it's more about the nostalgia."

Calling it 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', obviously I knew that there might be certain expectations," he explained. "I wouldn't want to call it that just for the sake of calling it that. I had to make sure that I had the right songs, and just when you think you got it, you listen and you're like 'F**k, man! I feel like it needs this or that', to paint the whole picture.
Eminem is set to be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on 2nd November with his album 'The Marshall Mathers LP' dropping on 4th November.
