Slaughterhouse member Joell Ortiz recently updated fans on the long-awaited record deal between Slaughterhouse and Eminem's Shady Records. During an interview on SiriusXM satellite radio broadcast, Joell said there was no doubt that his group would be under Eminem, even if it took some time.
"We're right now in talks with Shady Records and we are going back and forth with some legal stuff," Joell explained in a video. "Yes, we will be signing to Shady. Is it finalized now? No it's not but it is in the workings. Eminem is excited, the group is excited so you can really expect a Slaughterhouse release with Shady Records. I'm excited about that because shoot, being a dude that came up listening to real lyricism, real emcees, Mr. Marshall Mathers is one of the top notch there. You understand? And for him to show interest in myself and my group, it's just a beautiful thing and a blessing. I'm looking forward to that just as much as you — the answer to your question, 'Are we going to sign to Shady,' is yes we are and it's in the workings right now so be on the look-out."
