Eminem and Dr. Dre has recently signed Las Vegas’ own young rapper Ez Mil to Shady, Aftermath and Interscope records.
“We’ve never been out there signing a lot of artists, and one of the great things about how we built Shady is how selective we’ve been,” commented Eminem. “And it’s even rarer that Dre and I sign something together – but I heard Ez’s music and was like, ‘this is really special” so I took it to Dre. We both agreed it would be a great fit and we wanted to work with him right on the spot.”
Dr. Dre added, “I’m really only interested in working on shit that sounds different from anything else going on out there, and only then if I feel I can really bring something to it. Em played me Ez and I had that feeling…that thing that happens when we both know we’ve found something special. And that was it….let’s get to work.”
Eminem and Ez Mil already announced the first joint single “Realest” which drops on August 11. Yesterday, the song was previewed on Ez Mil’s social media accounts.
In the snippet of the song, the Shady Records signee namedrops his new boss: “I done got hit on the head, barely survived that s–t. / Minus a nine from ten, Eminem’s spot still sits / But f–k a position, I’m tunin’ him in / Let all you rock out with it, I ain’t ever gonna be an opt-out mission / Get the Glock out with it, get to poppin’, dip out and smoke / With the homies we mobbin’, while I’m / Cleanin’ the stash of my calibers / Some of them might got ya name on ’em.”
