Not an actual Eminem CD, Eminem Presents: The Re-Up is a mixtape of new material and booming remixes featuring more than a dozen artists — including 50 Cent — who are affiliated with the Detroit MC. There’s plenty of unfocused bluster here, but enough taut cuts to make up for the cameos from Eminem’s hometown sidekicks D12. The two Slim Shady solo tracks are the high points: ”Public Enemy #1” is two minutes of paranoia, while ”No Apologies” finds him spewing a breathless rant that is as gripping as it is disturbing.
