After appearing on several tracks on Shady Records’ mixtape/album The Re-Up over a year ago, Bobby Creek has been seldom heard from. Recently, the Atlanta native with HipHopDX at the A3C festival to discuss his current situation at Shady Records:
â€œEverything’s beautiful, man. Em’s working on his next project, and everybody’s getting’ geared up for that. So everything’s beautiful.â€ Creek continued, â€œI’ll say thisâ€¦everybody over at that label takes music seriously. They’re perfectionists, and they understand that first impressions are everything. If our projects take a little longer than people would like, just know that we’re making impactful [sic] music so we can make the impression we need to make. The music is going to be worth it for the fans â€“ the wait will be worth it.â€
The rapper spoke on his upcoming projects as well. â€œI’m working on A Brilliant Mistake, Em is working on his LP, and we’re having talks about possibly doing a â€˜Re-Up 2.’ My mixtape series Anthem 2 Da Streetzâ€¦volume 3 [is] coming out soon, sooner than everything else. Shady Records, we got a lot comin’. I can’t speak on everything because I don’t want to spoil the movie for ya’ll â€“ this is a motion picture. There’s a lot to look forward to. D12, they’re working. Obie [Trice], he’s working. We’re all working.â€ As for a release date for his album, Creek offered only that the label is “pushing for a…fall release.”
Finally, Bobby Creek addressed rumors about label head Eminem’s supposed massive weight gain. â€œ[There] must be two [Eminems], because the Em I just saw is in perfectly good shape. [I] saw him recently playing a pickup basketball game, so I don’t know much about the 250-pound Em; I missed that, I didn’t see that guy. No truth to those rumors whatsoever.â€
â€œHe’s focused, basically,” said Creek of Eminem. “He understands he’s been away for a while, and that he’s got to come back that much harder. He’s focused â€“ 110 percent. Y’all should expect that; he’s been away for a while, and he’s got a statement to make.â€
