It's no secret that Eminem's hugely-anticipated new album Revival was a critical flop, earning the rapper some of the worst reviews of his career. But it's for the first time he's faced such backlash from a record drop; 50 Cent has revealed in a new interview that Em scrapped plans for the followup to his 2009 album, Relapse, after facing similar heated criticism. Listen below from the 30:54 mark.

Appearing on radio show Big Boy’s Neighborhood to discuss his new movie Den of Thieves, 50 Cent says that “Being criticized about the music actually effects him. We had a whole other album when he did Relapse. He didn’t like the response so he didn’t even put out the whole Relapse 2. So it’s like, if he doesn’t like the response, he can change it.”

He continues to discuss his resentment of what he sees as disrespect from the younger generations toward Eminem, saying that “I never heard a new R&B singer come out and say Prince wasn’t hot. The new guys should pay homage to Em. He’s a big part of why we grew as fast as we grew.”

If history is any precedent, seems like any plans Eminem may have had for a sequel to Revival are now safely scrapped as well. Revisit Revival's lead single "Walk on Water" featuring Beyoncé below.

In other music news, clips have emerged from the upcoming AWGE Vol. 2 DVD that include A$AP Rocky freestyling with T-Pain. Watch them all right here.
