With Slaughterhouse closing in on their official move to Shady Records, SOHH reached out to D12‘s Bizarre to get his reaction.
Claiming Shady is home to lyrical emcees, Biz co-signed Eminem‘s forthcoming Shady additions.
“It’s all good man,” Biz told SOHH about Slaughterhouse joining the roster. “Royce [Da 5'9] is family man and we’ve been down for a while. Actually, we just did a tour with him and Joe Budden out in Canada last year before Slaughterhouse was even moving like that. It’s all good. We know them cats and it’d be a good addition to the camp man. Everybody over at Shady is lyrical, so, what else could you expect. We got the best over here.” (SOHH)
Em’s manager, Paul Rosenberg, recently revealed the rapper’s focus to rebuild Shady Records.
“I think he’s really focused on the creative side. He’s never been someone who’s set out to have a bunch of different companies out there, sort of playing the system. He’s just not that kind of guy.” The one project Eminem and manager Paul Rosenberg are focused on is the rebuilding of their label, Shady Records. “What we mean by that is finding great new artists,” Rosenberg says. “That’s one of the things he is passionate about.” Eminem has cited underground all-star group Slaughterhouse as his first planned signing, and he says more artists are on the table but not ready to be announced.

Em has also confirmed his intent to work with Slaughterhouse.
“I’m probably gonna go through this album cycle with everything that I got to do with this and then when I get back home, probably jump back in the studio with [D12] and do some things with Slaughterhouse and just keep making music,” Em said in an interview. “[Me and Royce back together,] that sh*t is cool…It feels good to be back in touch with the homie. When I rhyme with Royce, I always gotta step it up because Royce is f*cking ill. He’s one of the illest lyricists to me, out, period.” (“The All Out Show”)
Royce recently said Slaughterhouse has already received in-house Shady beats.
“Em gave me all types of tracks. Dre beats,” Royce said. “Just because the paperwork ain’t done don’t mean we ain’t been working. We definitely been throwing ideas around. [Em] stressed he wants to have a lot of involvement in the project. We want him to be as involved as he wants to be. Anytime he runs an idea by me, I respect him so much, I’m down with it. If he gives me a beat, like, ‘Yo, y’all would sound ill on this,’ I’m going to record it. That’s pretty much what we been doing. He hasn’t did no beats and gave me nothing yet, but he has given me a lot of beats from other producers.” (MTV)
