Posted By on August 23, 2010

     Slaughterhouse member, Crooked I, recently updated fans on the status of the group signing with Eminem's Shady Records, after months and months have passed since it was in the news. Fooling Around, Crooked I says there are contract issues with each member that has to be fixed first.

     "I'mma tell you like this," said Crooked when asked whether the deal had been officially completed. "I don't know about the rest of the group, but I'm on Shady!" he said, before breaking out laughing. "I'm just playin'. This is a note to any up-and-coming artist who's out there…any aspiring rapper or producer: when you sign a contract with a label, make sure that you have certain freedoms. Try to negotiate…We got four dudes, we got separate contracts with different labels, and some labels kinda blocking. They kinda blocking. But we're getting over those obstacles now, and we're negotiating…It's worse than LeBron [James] going to The Heat. It's crazy how long it's taking, but it's going to happen. Absolutely it's gonna happen, and absolutely we will be in the studio with Eminem, recording probably the greatest music of our lifetime."
