The only news about this is that if’s finally official and this is the signing day. Other than that, this was pretty much a done deal. I think more than anything is that Yelawolf joined the fold and is now apart of Shady Records. I think Yelawolf’s style will mesh well with Shady. And if you caught the “Session One” track with Em and Slaughterhouse, you already know what these guys can do together. You can catch the full story in the March 2011 XXL magazine releasing February 8th.
“Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse, it’s kinda phase two of Shady,” says Eminem. “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.”
Bringing together the East Coast, West Coast and Detroit in the middle, Slaughterhouse consists of Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Royce da 5’9”. Most recently, Slaughterhouse was featured on “Session One,” a bonus track on Eminem’s 2010 blockbuster Recovery album. Eminem is expected to be personally involved in Slaughterhouse’s sophomore album scheduled for release in 2011.
