The rapper, who delayed the U.S. release of his album Curtis from 26 June until September, insists he still loves making records, but will take his time to craft any new work.
He says, "For me, right now, I feel like I love music, so (fans) should expect me to make music afterwards.
"But I'll make it organically, like (Dr.) Dre makes a record. It may take five or seven years. ... They'll be looking for my record, like, 'Yo, come on, when you making a record?'
"Em ain't put out an album in five years. It builds anticipation because he's away. And he really doesn't enjoy what comes with the success. He likes to just be away a lot more, just be shy toward people. And then the less common you appear, the bigger your celebrity. So then he isolates himself, (and) he becomes more popular. People are more excited."
