Eminem, Dr. Dre Collaborate With Trick Trick on New Album
Detroit-native Trick Trick got a little help from his 8 Mile cohort Eminem on his upcoming release, 'The Villain.' Eminem -- who hasn't released an album of new material since 2004's 'Encore' -- lent his vocals and production skills to Trick's 'Who Want It,' and according to the underground rapper, Eminem's still got it.
"He's still the coldest that ever did it," Trick told MTV. "The game needs his album." Trick also comments on rumors that the rap star now weighs over 200 lbs. "Em just picked up some weight, that's it," Trick explained. "He's nowhere [near] 250 pounds or anything like that. He picked up a little weight. He ain't walkin' around obese or some sh-- though. He can still run two miles if you want him to and still out-box the majority of them. My man still gets down."
Dr. Dre showed Trick Trick some love on 'The Villain' and produced the track 'Hold On.' 'The Villain' also features 'Together Forever,' the last verse recorded by D12's fallen soldier Proof. The old-school-themed track, which Trick says is reminiscent of a Run-DMC song, features a rapping Kid Rock and "acid" rapper ESHAM.
