“Am I working on Eminem’s album? No,” Mr. Porter said in the video. “We are done. How about that?”
It’s unclear when the album will hit stores or when Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, will release a single from the album.
Eminem’s last full-length album, “The Marshall Mather’s LP 2,” was released in 2013. His last single, “Campaign Speech,” was released last year.

WASHINGTON — Rep. Warren Davidson, R-Troy, said President Donald Trump’s decision to launch a retaliatory strike against Syria for using chemical weapons against its own people was “unconstitutional.”
“There is no authority to do that,” Davidson said during a meeting with the Dayton Development Coalition. He said while it’s appropriate for Trump to launch a pre-emptive strike if, for example, an attack on the U.S. was imminent “our founders addressed this.” He said the founders made it clear that the key difference between a king and a president was that while both command the Army, the king can make war, “but in the United States, the legislature makes war.”

— Two black men arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks last week after the coffee shop’s manager called 911 to report them for trespassing spoke publicly for the first time Thursday.
Police detained the men after Starbucks employees said the pair was denied the use of the store’s bathroom and refused to leave, police Commissioner Richard Ross said.
Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that they were arrested while waiting to meet with a potential business partner at the Starbucks at 18th and Spruce streets. They said they arrived 10 minutes early for their scheduled 4:45 p.m. meeting. A manager called 911 to report that the men were refusing to leave at 4:37 p.m., according to “Good Morning America.”
FULL INTERVIEW: "This is something that has been going on for years...everyone is blind to it."

Robinson said he didn’t believe officers were at the coffee shop for him and Nelson when he first spotted them last week. Nelson said it became apparent when the officers asked them to leave.
“There was no question of, you know, was there a problem here between you guys and a manager? You know, what happened?” Nelson told “Good Morning America.”
The men said they were not read their Miranda rights before they were handcuffed and put in the back of a police car. A bystander recorded footage of the arrests that was later posted on social media, sparking criticism and raising questions of racial bias.
“This is something that has been going on for years and everyone’s blind to it, but they know what’s going on,” Nelson said. “It’s not just a black people thing, this is a people thing. And that’s exactly what we want to see out of this … true change.”
Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson apologized to the men in a private meeting with them Monday, a Starbucks spokesperson told CNN. The spokesperson declined to elaborate on what took place during the meeting.
Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard Schultz apologized Wednesday morning for the incident in an appearance on “CBS This Morning.”
Johnson apologized for the incident in a statement Saturday and pledged to investigate.
More than 8,000 Starbucks stores will be closed nationwide May 29 for a one-day training aimed at educating employees about racial bias. Company officials said nearly 175,000 employees across the country will receive the training, which will become a regular part of the company’s onboarding process.
Johnson said Tuesday that the planned racial-bias training “is just one step in a journey that requires dedication from every level of our company and partnerships in our local community.”
“While this is not limited to Starbucks, we’re committed to being a part of the solution,” he said.

PHILADELPHIA — A retired nurse aboard the frightening Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 on Tuesday jumped into action when flight attendants called for medical help for an injured passenger who was almost sucked out of a broken window.
One of the jet’s engines exploded in midair about 30 minutes after the plane took off from New York’s La Guardia Airport enroute to Dallas, sending metal shrapnel into the plane and fatally injuring passenger Jennifer Riordan.
Peggy Phillips and an EMT on the flight tried to save Riordan, performing CPR for 20 minutes until the jet made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.
“My training was awesome and I just did what I do. It kicked in and I did what needed to be done, what any registered nurse would do,” Phillips said in an interview with ABC News.
“It happened so fast,” she told WFAA. “If you can possibly imagine going through the window of an airplane at about 600 mph and hitting either the fuselage or the wing with your body, your face, then I think I can probably tell you there was significant trauma.”
And there was. Riordan died from her injuries. The Philadelphia medical examiner ruled Riordan’s death an accident and said she died from blunt force trauma.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the accident.

RALEIGH, N.C. — A 7-year-old cat given away by his family walked 12 miles back home -- only to be given away again.
“When he arrived, he was met with heartbreak,” the post said. “The family he thought had loved him took him to a shelter and asked staff to euthanize him. The shelter called us at the SPCA to ask if we could take him in and help him find a new family. Of course we said YES!”
The animal shelter said it took Toby in from a county shelter at the end of February.
Toby was adopted by his new mom, Michele, on Friday the 13, SPCA of Wake County communications manager Tara Lynn said in a blog post.
“It’s funny. He’s very sweet, but he didn’t get along with his (feline) roommate,” Lynn told People Pets. “We thought he’d need to be adopted out as the only cat in a home, but his new family has two other cats and he’s fine with them. He’s just been through a lot and wasn’t settled yet.”
Lynn told People that she wasn’t sure if Toby, who is FIV-positive, was given up by his family because of his disease, but it didn’t seem to impact interest from potential adopters.
“It’s cool, people were interested in him despite his FIV,” Lynn said.
Toby’s life with his forever family is captured on his own Instagram page, a.cat.named.toby. The page has more than 15,000 followers and includes a post supporting the SPCA of Wake County’s annual Dog Walk, which benefits all animals in the shelter.
