Eminem is already planning to release the 2-CD compilation album Shady XVon November 28, but now word has gotten out that the lyrical legend’s Shady Records will also drop a new mixtape as well. DJ Whoo Kid spoke about the upcoming project on the Rap Radar podcast.
“You guys gave me 130 records,” said Whoo to fellow guest Shady’s Paul Rosenberg. “Physically you can’t put all of them on 80 minute CDs, so we had to do a double disc.”
The parties involved were not completely open about all of the particular tracks that will be included on the Whoo Kid mixed Shady Records tape, but Rosenberg did mention he went back and listened to tracks like Obie Trice’s “Hey Lady,” 50 Cent’s “I Get Money (Remix),” and Eminem’s version of “Wanksta.” There will be 66 songs on the mixtape totaling nearly three hours of music.
“The first CD is like 80 [minutes] and the second one is like 70 [minutes],” revealed Whoo Kid. “Some songs are like five artists, especially the Slaughterhouse joints.”
The Shady Records mixtape will hit the internet sometime next week.
