Bass Brothers want to make sequel of “The Slim Shady LP” with Eminem




On this day, (February 23, 1999), Eminem released his major-label debut, critically-acclaimed, chart-topping, multi-platinum and Grammy-winning album “The Slim Shady LP,” mostly produced by legendary producers from Detroit, Mark and Jeff Bass, also know as Bass Brothers.

Jeff Bass is considered as one of the most influential people in Eminem’s incredible career. Although Interscope Records marketed Dr. Dre as Eminem’s major producer, the Bass Brothers have in fact produced more individual tracks for Eminem than Dre. Jeff Bass performed the “Public Service Announcements” that introduce both The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP.

Most of Eminem’s chart-topping hit singles have been either produced by Dre (“My Name Is”, “The Real Slim Shady”, and “Just Lose It”) or Jeff Bass (“Without Me”, “Beautiful”, and “Lose Yourself”). Both have won Grammy Awards for their work with Eminem. Jeff Bass won a Best Original Song Oscar in 2003 for co-writing “Lose Yourself” from the No. 1 box office movie, 8 Mile.

Although the brothers no longer do significant production for Eminem, Slim Shady has stated that they maintain a positive and close relationship as they have attended Eminem’s recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony. As it appears, Bass Brothers are down to the idea of making the sequel of “The Slim Shady LP.” Few hours ago, Jake Bass, who is a son of Jeff Bass, shared the initiative statement on Twitter: “The Basses are still making music and they say they’d love to work with Eminem again. Jeff relishes the idea of Slim Shady LP sequel.” In the caption, he wrote: “It’s time for a sequel @Eminem.” You can check the post below:
