He has signed Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf.
Rapper Eminem has opened up about his intention of reviving his record label “Shady Records.” Back in 2000, his label not only was fully functional, but also it made it big, as it counted among its signees with platinum-albums sellers from the likes of 50 Cent and D12.
The Detroit-born artist has talked to MTV News about his intentions towards the label: "The whole Slaughterhouse thing and what Royce was doing when they formed that group, it was exciting to me just because, aside from the Detroit connection that I already had with Royce, to me it's just exciting for hip-hop because it's so new and fresh and different.” He continued: "And also, at the same time, I feel like I'm kinda taking this year to try and reestablish and rebuild the label back too."
Eminem is definitely excited about his two new signees and describes the new energy around the label as a "very fun, competitive-type atmosphere."
