Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf to Invade NYC

It’s a Shady-bration, bitches. Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse will take to the stage in New York on September 17 as a part of the Brisk Bodega initiative that’s set to transform an art gallery into a pop-up experience dedicated to all things Shady. Remnants from Eminem’s career, including the “claymation” puppet of the rapper from the Superbowl commercial spot, will be showcased, in addition to a Tristan Eaton-designed artwork from Yelawolf’s tour bus.

The Brisk Bodega pop-up is set to open in Manhattan’s West Village at 159 Bleeker Steet and offer public viewing hours from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Later on that night, Shady Records signees Yelawolf and Joe Budden, Royce da 5’9”, Crooked I and Joell Ortiz AKA Slaughterhouse will perform in the Bodega that Brisk built.

“It’s kinda phase two of Shady,” Eminem told XXL in a March 2011 cover story with his crew. “The new generation of Shady Records. And as we’re trying to rebuild our label. But it’s exciting for hip-hop because everyone in the group is a solo artist, and it’s, like, all these forces are coming together to make a record together, with all of everybody’s ideas and shit.

“Then Yelawolf comes along, and I heard of him and start listening to his shit, and if felt like it made sense,” he added.”
