    Dread or Alive Kamikaze should've been released 3 years ago

    I mean Eminem aside, Yelawolf, and slaughterhouse are crazy talented, but by nature super gritty (like EM in his younger days). Has Em's management destroyed the potential these guys could have had in the last decade?

    D12 and Obie Trice wouldn't have had much (if any) success without Shady
    50 (and G Unit)would have been a star regardless
    Stat Quos an interesting one... He did have a pretty good mixtape run while he was there but I guess there might have been potential without Shady
    Green Lantern seemed to do just fine on his own. Although I would have loved to hear that rumored Shady album he was working on
    Cashis and Creekwater probably wouldn't have gone anywhere anyway
    Yela's career would probably have followed a similar trajectory, although he might have had a better debut
    Yeah, Shady totally f----- up Slaughterhouse. They should have gone the Run the Jewels/Czarface route.
    Surprisingly, great move for Boogie
    Hoping the Griselda deal produces a similar effect as it did for Boogie. Guess we'll find out in June

    overall its up and down, wouldn't say its a death blow. But generally not great.

    I agree with everything Sav said, especially that Slaughterhouse part. d---, I wish they stayed independent. Their first album is one of my favorites.

    You can clearly tell Paul wanted (or Em, who knows) to make them radio, whole Shady 2.0 era was kinda driven by radio plays, idk.

    I just hope we gon get Glasshouse someday.



    :wow2:

    Nah the fact that D12, Obie, Cashis, Bobby and Stat couldn’t carry themselves ruined their careers.

    50 owes Em a lot but he would’ve been fine by himself. Not as big obviously but he woulda made it somehow.

    Yela was f---ing dope as f--- before Shady, then his first album s----d, but he’s pulled it back and carried himself back to being great again.

    Slaughterhouse was a disaster but Em was only trying to help. Joe Budden being a c---- ruined their chances of proving themselves and coming back.

    Boogie is so far so good.

    Obie should have had different singles and more of a push. Cheers is fantastic.

    50 cent was the most hyped rapper to hit the scene.

    Slaughterhouse were a bunch of lyrical dudes that never would if made it mainstream huge huge. Just wast there style

    Yelawolf did decent. I know he gets a lot of hate on here but whatever.

    Cashis county hound ep is underrated as f---.

    Stat quo got over looked because of his single back in the day but he had some good s--- on his mixtapes.

    Cheers was the last Shady Records classic untill Yelawolf's "Love Story".

    It wasn’t rumored, it was a real project in the works. I got a little ad for it when I bought Cheers

    Shady Records has generally been a graveyard for artists, yes. At least as far as a listener is concerned. I'm sure it's more complicated behind the scenes. There's been no momentum behind that label since like 03-04.

    Slaughterhouse were so badly handled that it boggles the mind. The pre-release mixtape was better than the album

    Only 50 and D12 were successful on this label, and that was until 2007. After 2007, the label died and could not be resurrected. These 2 projects were very successful in the United States and around the world. Multiplatinum albums, Top 10 in charts, and so on.

    Obie Trice, Yelawolf and Boogie somewhere at the same level of popularity in their best years. Pretty average level of fame. The potential of these artists was not fully disclosed and they were given little promo.

    Cashis, Stat Quo, Bobby, Slaughterhouse & Hall N Nash practically had no promo, only some mentions and very weak sales.
