Eminem protege Cashis recently spoke on the recent departure of Shady Records' artists Obie Trice and Bobby Creekwater and explained the importance of having patience with the company.
While saying his relationship with Trice is still good, Cashis attempted to explain what likely caused the ex-Shady rappers' exits.
"That's probably it they didn't want to wait any more," he said in an interview. "Patience is a virtue like you could be upset with your momma, but at the end of the day that's not what you feel. I can't really speak on their situation like why they left or whatever. Obie is my partner straight up he's a real dude. He's doing good so some things are meant to be but I can't speak on other peoples situation. I support them in whatever they do and no one has ever left Shady Records talking really crazy so it's always a mutual split." (Q The Question)
Atlanta rapper Bobby Creekwater recently announced his departure from Shady Records.
"We parted ways, it was a business decision," Creekwater revealed in an interview. "Just so you know, labels, in some cases, can choose to be a**holes, hold the artists on the label -- put an artist through a whole bunch of bullsh*t to get free but they didn't. They understood my plight and I appreciate [manager Peter Rosenberg] for that, him and Em...I'm officially off of Shady...Basically it was this, Em, or Shady had to pay some bills. They had released some projects that didn't do as well as they planned or what have you so Em had to go and make that right. In Em making that right, Creekwater would have had to do more waiting and it's one of those things as an artist, you're your first concern...I couldn't afford to do any more waiting. It was the time to move on." (YouTube)
With a roster including 50 Cent and D12, the label previously released artists Stat Quo and Obie Trice last year.
"Shady Records has agreed to allow Obie Trice to pursue his craft in a different forum free from the constraints of the current major label model," Em's manager Paul Rosenberg said in a statement. "Eminem will continue to support and work with Obie on many levels of his career. He remains a close friend and member of the Shady family." (Rap Basement)
Redman previously spoke on the possibility of joining Em's record company if given the opportunity.
"Even like Shady, even to have that idea, or Eminem to even have that idea like thinking Redman was gonna be off Def Jam and he coming through is a privilege," Red explained. "Like, I will leave right now and go over there to Shady. I don't care, 'cause they still doing hip-hop and I love it. Anybody supporting it, I'm there. Big up to Shady though, but I ain't off Def Jam yet, f*ck. But I'm there though. I'm still rockin'. Come get me for a record though, let's make it happen." (Dog & Pony Show)
