EMINEM SIGNS NEW ACTS

 

1.12.11 - Rapper Eminem is back in more ways than one. The emcee is reviving his Shady Records company, and Wednesday (January 12) he announced the signing of two new acts: underground supergroup Slaughterhouse and upstart rapper Yelawolf.

 

"Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse, it's kinda phase two of Shady," Eminem explained in a statement. "It's the new generation of Shady Records, and as we're trying to rebuild our label, it's exciting for hip-hop, and with all of these forces coming together and with what everybody's capable of on the mic, it's gonna be fun."

 

The four-man Slaughterhouse collective — Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I and Royce Da 5'9" — began talks with Shady Records for longer than a year working on the deal.

 

"I been answering that question for a year and change, ever since that Drake 'Forever' music video," Budden told reporters "It's like, Eminem is a whole nother entity. The guy is nominated for 10 Grammys."

 

Both acts are expected to deliver projects in the coming months.
