Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf Join Eminem’s Shady Records

January 12, 2011 Leave a comment

It’s going down! After a couple months of speculation, Slaughterhouse’s deal with Shady Records/Interscope has now become official. Except via XXL:

“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.”

Joining the foursome on the Shady Roster is none other than Yelawolf, who had already inked a record deal with Interscope last year. Here’s what the Alabama rapper had to say about the signing to Marshall’s label:

“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 your life 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.”

The latest issue (March) of XXL is set to hit newsstands on February 8th.

Eminem Covers Rolling Stone + Excerpt

November 9, 2010 Leave a comment

Eminem graces the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone hitting newsstands everywhere this Friday. Peep an excerpt below:

Rolling Stone Josh Eells sits down with Eminem at his Detroit recording studio for a revealing interview about the rapper’s long battle with prescription drugs, his difficulties with women and the pain of being abandoned by his father at six months old, as well as his incredible musical comeback.

Do you think it’s hard for you to trust women?
I have trust issues. With women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are. I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever. Right now, that works for me. I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years. I kind of feel like I’m just now finding my footing. So I want to make sure that’s secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while.

What about your love life? Do you date?
Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movie—I just can’t. Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t? It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.

Yesterday some preliminary numbers dropped (via Hits Daily Double), but here’s the ‘final’ sales numbers for Marshall’s Recovery. According to Billboard, Em’s latest album sold a whopping 741,000 copies in its’ first week. This becomes his 6th straight #1 album. Congrats to this dude!

“Recovery’s” debut week sales surpasses the first week of Eminem’s last set, “Relapse,” which began at No. 1 in 2009 with 608,000. It also beats the opening of 2005’s “Curtain Call: The Hits” which entered at No. 1 with 441,000 in 2005.

Eminem’s new album also wows digitally, as downloads made up 255,000 of its first week. That’s the second-biggest digital week for an album in history. Only Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends” notched a larger frame, when it debuted with 288,000 downloads in the summer of 2008.
