Rampant speculation about Slaughterhouse’s status with Shady Records has come to a head, as two of the group’s members have hinted at a possible signing.
The first was Crooked I (@TheRealCrookedI), who wrote, “Jus got great news from @kino1 #MusicIsMyLife I’m bout to celebrate w/ a shot of johnny walker blue.. #Cheers”
Hours later, Joe Budden (@mousebudden) made a similar, more indicative revelation. “UH OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, DONE DEAL …… literally (about time too, i miss rapping, lol)”
The posts could mean that Slaughterhouse, comprised of Budden and Crooked I, in addition to Royce Da 5’9″ and Joell Ortiz, has found a home on Shady Records. Speculation of a forthcoming signing began as soon as as the group was formed, given that it was announced that Eminem and Royce squashed their long-standing beef. The talk greatly escalated with Slaughterhouse’s cameo appearance in the “Forever” video.
More on this as it develops.
