Slaughterhouse's own Joel Ortiz recently talked about the status of his group signing to Shady Records saying he's already been in the studio with Eminem. "We in the ninth inning of it, we just keep changing pitchers," Ortiz said in an interview. "I don't know, man — it's a lot of hold-ups. I thought on my end I was straight, but I wasn't. We're going back and forth with the people I'm working with. Joe [Budden] had some issues had some issues or whatever. The interest is still there. Everybody is excited about it, it's just a lot of people involved in this. Four artists, four separate managers, label situations — a lot of black and white that gotta get settled for it to happen, but verbally, we're on Shady! Eminem is excited, the whole group is excited. The world is excited. I can't even do a show without somebody asking that. Without them being, 'You ripped it, what's up with Em?' Everybody is waiting on this, so it's going to happen. It's going to happen. We got in the studio with Em already. We traded bars and stuff with all of us."
