By Soren Baker
Eminem's first album since 2010's Recovery is on its way, and at least one rapper seems ready for the new material.
Machine Gun Kelly posted a video of him rapping Eminem's "Lose Yourself" in front of Saint Andrew's Hall, one of the clubs in which Eminem honed his MC craft as a struggling artist in Detroit.
Later in the clip, MGK performs Eminem's lyrics from one of the MC battles Eminem participated in his semi-autobiographical film "8 Mile."
Machine Gun Kelly's Black Flag mixtape should be released soon.
As for Eminem, the Shady Records artist has been working on a new album that may be available as early as next month.
"We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013," Shady Records President Paul Rosenberg said recently. "It's safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we re not exactly when."
Rosenberg also said that Eminem will be performing in Europe in August.
