Bobby Creekwater Talks Shady Records

Posted By on March 8, 2010

     What is next for Bobby Creekwater? Now that he is no longer on Eminem's Shady Records, Creek talked about his past with the label during a recent interview with hiphopdx. Bobby talked about what it was like to be signed to Shady Records while Eminem was going through his much-publicized drug addiction,, which saw Stat Quo and Obie Trice leave the label. "It was unfortunate. It was an unfortunate thing that a cast that talented, and all the plans that we had, didn't come to fruition. As far as [Eminem] is concerned, I can't possibly speak on what he was going through at the time. I do know that the industry, and this game, has a lot of pressures, and the higher up you go, the harder it gets. I've never been that high, so I couldn't begin on speaking on the pressures. Being responsible for a label, and being responsible for artists and their dreams. I can say this: it's unforunate that a cast that talented didn't get their shit off."

     "To be honest, I was definitely worried about my status as an artist," elaborated Bobby. "This is what I love. This is what I do. This is how I feed my family. There's always that worry, that feeling in the bottom of your stomach. [But I knew] it was something I had to go through to get to the next level. I'd be lying if I didn't say I didn't get frustrated at times or what have you. But that's normal."

     "Interscope had to pay bills. So they had to go with what they knew would pay the bills: Em, [Dr.] Dre, 50 [Cent]. It was a situation that cause me to…sit still a little longer than I expected, or what I planned for. It was one of those things where I had to go off and create other opportunities for myself, and they were very understanding. They didn't hold me up. They understood my plight, and let me go on my way."

     Creekwater says there is no bad feelings between himself and Shady. "We worked out what needed to be worked out as far as the music was concerned. Everything that I wanted, I was able to keep. Like I said, they were very fair as far as letting me do my thing."
