Shady Records could have a big year in 2013. The label is gearing up several new releases in the coming month from artists like Eminem, Yelawolf and 50 Cent.
In an interview with Billboard, Shady president Paul Rosenberg discussed the progress behind Em’s untitled eighth studio album. According to him, Em is “far into the process” and should be expected it sometime after Memorial Day.
“We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He’s been working on it for some time,” he said. “It’s safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we’re not exactly sure when. We’ve got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we’re trying to see what else lines up.”
Rosenberg gave an update on Yelawolf’s sophomore album, too. Catfish Billy recently began recording in Nashville, Tenn. As of now, he released the first offering from his forthcoming mixtape, Trunk Muzik Returns, called “Way Out.”
The imprint also intends on putting out 50 Cent’s Street King Immortal in the first-half of 2013, but there is no definite date yet. Each Slaughterhouse member will release solo efforts before regrouping for their second Shady release.
