After much anticipation, Slaughterhouse officially signs to Eminem’s label, Shady Records. And an even more surprising addition to Slim’s artist roster is Alabama emcee, Yelawolf.

[twitter=Eminem]Eminem[/twitter] explains the new generation of Shady records:

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.

Yelawolf speaks on his new venture:

Considering where I’m from and the shit I’ve been through, it’s hard to put into words what partnering with Shady means to me, my team at Ghet-O-Vision, and my state of Alabama. I can tell you that when you’re willing to give yourlife up to see a dream through, the reward is great. And now that I’ve become an apprentice to one of the greatest artists in the world, my potential reaches beyond anything I ever imagined. Let’s kill this shit.

Eminem and his new artists will grace the March edition of XXL Magazine.
