The recent announcement of the new signings to the refreshed Shady Records line up is definitely encouraging.
Slaughterhouse signing to Eminem's label has been in the pipeline for a few months now and was sort of expected but the addition of Yelawolf to the roster was definitely a surprise to most including me.
With the success of the Slaughterhouse album, it was Yelawolf who I was uneducated about. I decided to do some research and downloaded his mixtape - Trunk Muzik 0-60. The mixtape features appearances from Bun-B, Raekwon and Gucci Mane. This was the first material I had ever heard from Yelawolf and I got to say, I was pleasantly surprised. I can only see his move to Shady Records as a positive and I'm sure we'll hear some great music from both Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse in 2011.
In related Shady Records news, I heard a rumour from Illseed over at AllHipHop.com that 50 Cent may be leaving the Shady/Aftermath roster altogether. Don't know how true this is.
