EZ Mil joins 50 Cent as only the second rapper to be signed by both Eminem and Dr. Dre. The hip-hop legends took to Instagram to announce that they have signed the Filipino lyricist to Shady Records, Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records. In addition to the announcing the signing, a press statement revealed that EZ Mil and Eminem will release a song together on August 11 titled “Realast.” You can read the full announcement here.
“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.”
Congratulations to EZ Mil!
