One my my all-time favorite rappers has signed one of my favorite up and coming artist Yelawolf, along with the super group Slaughterhouse (consisting of rappers Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Royce da 5'9")

Eminem's Shady Records announced the signing of Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf. Em and his new members will appear on the cover of the March issue of XXL. See what Em and Yelawolf had to say

Eminem said:

"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 said:

"Considering where I'm from and the sh*t 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 sh*t."
