Eminem Confirms Signing Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf To Shady Records

After months of back-and-forth speculation, Interscope announces the deal is done. Besides statements, lips will likely remain sealed for a March "XXL" cover-story.

After months of speculation, Interscope Records revealed today that Eminem has signed Hip Hop quartet Slaughterhouse to Shady/Interscope. The formal announcement and full report will be made in the March issue of XXL magazine, a cover-story for the publication. Also revealed is that Eminem has also signed Gasden, Alabama DXnext alum Yelawolf, who will join the five others on the March XXL cover.

Interscope provided the following statement from Eminem: “Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse, it’s kinda phase two of Shady. 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.”

In a statement, Royce Da 5'9" noted the significance of reuniting with fellow Detroit native and former rhyme-partner Eminem. “It's very exciting for me to reunite with Eminem years after our Bad Meets Evil project together. Slaughterhouse on Shady Records will be a force to reckon with.” Along with Royce, Slaughterhouse consists of Long Beach, California's Crooked I, Brooklyn, New York's Joell Ortiz and Jersey City, New Jersey's Joe Budden.

Two months ago, Yelawolf released a retail version of his Trunk Muzik 0-60 on Interscope Records. According to Yela's Ghet-O-Vision imprint, he will remain there, in conjunction with the two high-profile labels. This also marks a return to Interscope for Joell Ortiz, who was signed to Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment, an Interscope boutique label, between 2005 and 2007.

  • Mike Twain

    That's actually ballsy of Em, because Yelawolf is absolutely nicer than him right now. So that's big of him to recognize the talent and let Yela get his. Now if only someone recognizes mine! reverbnation.com/miketwain

  • ?

    yelawolf is white and not 2 bring race into the picture but from a (music)business move we know who is really purchasing the music. respect to both of them but yelawolf will sale more units. and slaughterhouse will be more traditional boom bap hip hop. with an updated production feel to it.

    • Sean Cody Mahoney

      yelawolf is white but also talented, you shouldn't just say his race is all that counts, if that was true there would be a million more white rappers. and what's the point of saying "not to bring race into the picture" and then bring race into the picture????? i hate it when people talk about yelawolf like this, as if asher roth went platinum a million times over. anyway I actually just came here to say SLAUGHTERHOUSE!!!!

  • 3 headed monstah

    If Shady actually puts out the music these guys make then this is good 2011 bout to be Shady/Aftermath, Roc Nation, Strange Music, G.O.O.D. Music, Young Money really tho

  • Chupps

    Roc Nation, G.O.O.D Music and Shady Records need to just completely dominate hip hop for the next decade (atleast) and just put out good quality music on a consistant basis. I'm not too sure how well Slaughterhouse will do on Shady Records, hopefully they're allowed to just put out real music and any mainstream attempts can be kept respectable.

      Ahh, I'm under the impression that Kanye might try and sign Elzhi earlier than the other two. He's been all over the place, lately. Bit worried about whether or not Kanye'd try and monopolize production if he were to sign Elzhi, though. Kanye's ego's mad inflated.

    • Anonymous

      Yela isnt that bad, but a record label is a buisness and Yela has potential to crossover , I live in the south, dudes name is buzzin Besides, aint like 50 was very much of an MC either, and that move turned out pretty good for everybody I think, lol

  • Rick

    I think Em signed Yela a as a business move $$$$$$$ not because of dudes skills. Yelawolf will outsell SH and he knows it. ...hopefully this move motivates EM to start spittin' like his early days. ...Just please Em stay away from the production side of things....Shit let Kalil handle the prduction...and hopefully Dre gets in on this as well....

    • yugang

      U got a point about yelawolf getting signed as a business move but he can rhyme and does make some banging ass music so if it means he'll be able to release an official album then cool. Just hope slaughterhouse will be able to release an album too.

    • Pat Neeland

      @cleezy The reason Shady/Interscope didn't have a good track record with releases this year is because they recorded a lot of albums that were shit. I think Em's trying to switch shit up a bit and go into, like he said "Phase 2". I'm honestly a bit amped to see where Shady/Interscope is headed, even if I'm far from the biggest fan of that label.

      How you're managing to say "fuck Eminem" is baffling to me. Eminem is THE greatest rapper of all time. And this "corny fruity pop bullshit"...remind me of this bullshit you're mentioning, because I have yet to hear anything but greatness come out of his mouth along with shady records as a whole. I'm not sure if you're referring to the music that is played on the radio, but all that is good as well. It's not "corny fruity pop bullshit"...it's radio edited music. so "who gives a shit"...uhm everyone that has a decent taste in music. If you don't like something, don't go out of your way to search for it. I guess the real question is, who gives a shit about you and your opinions?

    aight this is very interestin news considering Yela's signing. Dude is a beast. Hopefully Em'll keep him southern. Good look for tha SH crew as well

  • Normont Terrorist

    So does that make the individual members of SH also Shady Artist or did they get a Wu-Tang deal? As far as Yelawolf good for him I guess. Havent heard much of his music what I have heard hasnt been pleasing to my auditory pallette but I understand I am not the end all be all.

      Em stated that Yelawolf was his favourite artist in 2010. Em was seen rapping Pop The Trunk to himself. Yelawolf is ill. Nuff Said.

      People will soon realize how good Yelawolf is. Em does, and so does interscope. He'll be the next big thing. Say what you want but watch it happen.

    Eminem is at soon 90 million solo album and Marshall Mathers and The Eminem Show are at 23 & 22 millions album sold each.. The only problem is that today it's almost impossible to do that again. Recovery is the biggest album of 2010 and did like 6-7 million WW.
