Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf x The XXL Cover

Here is the cover for March’s issue of XXL that features Eminem, Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf. The rap supergroup Slaughterhouse consists of Detroit rapper Royce da 5’9, Brooklyn-native Joell Ortiz, Jersey rapper Joe Budden and Crooked I from Cali. Yelawolf is looking to be the next big artist, so signing both to Shady records was not even a question to Eminem.

Eminem & Yelawolf on the signing

“Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse, it’s kinda phase two of Shady,” says Eminem. “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.”

Said 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.”
