The King Is Giving Credit: T.I. Salutes Eminem & Gives Dap To Shady Records

Since being released from prison this past September, Atlanta’s rapper T.I. (The King of the South) have been busy recording tracks for his upcoming album Trouble Man, which will be released February 2012. T.I.’s first post prison released single “I’m Flexin’” proved that he is indeed back. So far, T.I. already recorded 45 tracks for his eighth studio album. Some of those tracks include the recently surfaced club banger “Pyro,” and the title track, which features a sample of Marvin Gaye‘s 1972 Motown hit “Trouble Man.” Below are some excerpts from Part 2 of T.I.’s interview with Billboard.com The Juice:

On Eminem being an enormous supporter.

I haven’t had a chance to speak to Em since I’ve been home,” T.I. said. “I heard that while I was down, he was trying to get in contact with me, but I don’t know if the dots just didn’t connect. [Eminem] overcoming his own adversities, winning the battle against his own demons and continuing to break the mold and re-set the standard of what it means to be the most successful hip-hop artist in the game … I salute that to no end.”

 Giving dap to Em’s Shady Records.

I love what he’s doing with Slaughterhouse. I love the move that he made to sign Yelawolf. And the record with him and Royce da 5’9″… that record is going h.a.m. He killed that BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher. I’ve been peeping the move[ment].”

Don Bleek Exclusive: Dirty Jerz Emcee Joe Budden Is Signing A Solo Deal With Eminem’s Shady Records?

Dirty Jerz gold-selling recording artist Joe Budden is rumored to be signing a solo deal with Eminem’s Shady Records. Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Crooked-I & Royce Da 5′ 9″ are signed to Em’s Shady Records a group (Slaughterhouse). It is being reported that the Jersey City native approached Em and with the idea of signing a solo deal; and Em is giving him the green light. Budden recently released his new mixtape Mood Muzik 4.5. In my opinion, Budden is one of the most lyrical emcees in the game. Besides Fabolous and Cassidy, I don’t think it’s another rapper touching Budden lyrically.

I’m so proud of Budden. We’re both from Dirty Jerz. He’s from the North side and I’m from the South side.

Did 50 Cent Leave Shady/Aftermath Records?

I am not sure how true this rumor is but I’m hearing that Queens rapper 50 Cent recently departed away from Shady/Aftermath Records for unknown reasons. Allegedly, some form of confidentially was signed. Below is how AllHipHop is reporting the story.

Rumor has it 50 Cent has left Shady Records and, I believe this includes Aftermath too. The rumors out there are that this is its a very very complex deal and there may be some form of confidentially clause going on. They don’t want anything out there in the marketplace, especially via Twitter, the rumor says. On the other side, there is great energy at Shady with the addition of Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse. This is all rumor material, but the source swears by it.

Eminem Covers XXL March Issue, Plus Signs Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf to Shady Records

After months of rumors and speculations, the deal is now finalized. Eminem recently signed Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf to Shady Records. Below are some excerpts from the cover story which features, Em, Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf.

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.”

Royce Da 5′9″: “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.”

Yelawolf: “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.”
