Joell Ortiz Rages Against The Machine

Last night, Joell Ortiz vented about his situation with E1 (Koch Records). To hear him tweet it, the label’s preventing him and his Slaughterhouse brethren from inking a deal with another entity. That’s just shady.

    Fuck Koch/E1/The Graveyard!

  • Moose

    I wonder who’s the other bozo involved from letting the best rap group get their shine? Go SlaughterHouse!!! And I hope it’s not that idiot from Amalgam up in Bean Town

  • PC

    Amalgam is holding back the Shady deal also. They don’t want to let go of Joey and E1 doesn’t want to let go of Joell. That’s some bullshit, fuck the industry.

  • ctg

    I see that industry rule #4080 is still in effect.

  • RapMusic23

    Fuck,i want them to sign for Shady!

  • Post no billz

    Dam industry politics always fuckin the game up.I think some these rappers need to start ruffing up these execs like it was the 90s..(like cube did in beef 2 lol)

  • Truth_City

    They gon’ get em’ if he don’t be quiet, watch….

  • Tego

    So signing with those crooks at Koch was a bad idea? I can’t believe nobody warned him.

    Damn Slaughterhouse cant win without losing. Hopefully they can get this worked out & move on (no pun). If I were Joell, I wud start naming names. Put the pressure on em!

    Lol @ that pic. Dude look like he just found out he was adopted.

  • jamdawham

    Unshackle slaughterhouse!

    i don’t see things being that much better on Shady go ahead and finish up your deal then go

    “Lol @ that pic. Dude look like he just found out he was adopted.”

    ^^^ LMAO!

    That’s messed up for Joell though…. and Slaughterhouse…. damn shame. I could see those guys doing some big things on Shady.

    Peace.

    Very unfortunate, yet… this is how the machine was designed from jump… The chances any of us will see the success that artists had 10-15 years ago, is slim to none. You gotta have paper to be able to get what you want in the rap game now. Artists like Joell would be better off, being completely independent, and funding their own distribution than messing around with all this E1, Amalgam Digital BS…. I believe 50 warned niggas about this 2,3 years ago

  • Theloneus

    LOL @ Shady Records hint in post. Never liked slaughterhouse. Never will. Don’t really give a fuck is Em’ collaborates with them.

  • B. Digital

    Fuck Koch and Amalgam Digital.

  • Drucifer

    Tragic, Slaughterhouse on Shady would be incredible for both parties, Give Slaughterhouse a capable mentor and Give Em some Hungry talent to keep him on his toes

  • Interscope Employee

  • ayoooooooo

    Fuck Slaughterhouse. All them niggas is washed up and overrated, period. What’s a deal with Shady going to do with their careers? If they can’t drop classics now, they never will. Slaughterhouse has no appeal to be in the mainstream, they can’t sell with their style like this. Royce/Crook are too old and ghetto, Budden is too bipolar, and Ortiz is too fat (naa lol, he got skill). I don’t know why everyone wants them too Shady, like wtf is that going to do?

  • dev

    E-1 isnt exactly a top noch label they wanna suck all the money they can out of slaughterhouse while they are hot now. now that their top artist dj khaled has fell off their desperate.

  • King JuggaNott

    @ ayooooooooooo In my opinion it’s in hopes that if they get to Shady Eminem will tour and they can be on tour with him. Right now I don’t think many artists are worried about record sales. They want that show money.

  • MisterUpgrade

    This definitely boils down to his management and attorney dropping the ball. No matter how dope you are, if your business sense is lacking, your growth (artistically, fiscally), will be stunted.

  • ROC_NY_2012

    After all the shit people give 50 Cent, he warned the whole industry that Koch would do this and it’s Fif that gave Koch the nickname “The Graveyard”. I feel bad for Slaughterhouse because they would do amazing under the Shady label. Guess this is an example for everyone in the industry.

  • sway-z

    This is why I can’t stand when niggas get on that “Fuck Puff, Jay they leeches” type of shit, cuz when you try to slide away from a contract with other labels, they ain’t havin it.

    All that let the Lox go and Mase running up on Puff in radio stations don’t work with no other labels, you just hate niggas like him, 50 & Jay for being all over the tv all the time but it’s these cold ass white execs you never see who be the worst ones

  • Drucifer

    @ Ayoooo

    Slaughterhouse might not be your style but I bet they could at least go gold with Em’s backing

  • Chipped Tooth Condition

    Just imagine how much gwop these niggas will get IF they opened for Eminem on a worldwide ARENA tour. Not some small ass clubs down the block.

    That’s a big IF tho since Em don’t like touring on a big scale.

  • melix

    lol@you guys thinking Em will tour again, Em’s already set for life in money, why does he have to exhaust himself in touring anymore? he always said he wants to spend time with his family, not touring.

  • P

    Does anyone else see the irony in 1/2 (Royce &
    Ortiz) of Slaughterhouse having already been affliated w/ the Shady/Aftermath camp and now trying to get back under the umbrella? Joe Budden was on a major label too. If these cats couldn’t do it the first time, collectively are they going to be able to have the artistic freedom they’d like & still be able generate the album sales a major label would want this time around?

  • mike

    JOIN VENTURE BITCHES

  • Yooo

    @melix you’re a retard if you think Em won’t ever tour again.

  • YOUAJOKE

    I AINT A SLAUGHTERHOUSE GROUPIE BUT THESE NIGGAS ARE ONLY A FEW NIGGAS LEFT WHO KEEP IT 100. I DONT WANT TO HEAR NIGGAS LIKE WAYNE, ROSS & GAME MAKING STORYS UP LIKE RAPS A JOKE.

    Who has done anything great under the Shady label other than 50 and Shady himself?

    Slaughterhouse is talented but they offer nothing out of the ordinary (think NWA, ATCQ, OUTKAST) its nothing we haven’t seen before. They are all very lyrical rappers but none of them as an individual or as a group can really change the landscape of hip hop, so why all the excitement for them to sign to Shady?

    Maybe I’m not seeing something can someone explain? Give me their side, point of view?

  • Drucifer

    @ Caniblog

    I can only speak for myself, but personally I’m excited about it cause I like Slaughterhouse and I like Em so I think the music would be great………….As far as sales and what not, who cares, nobody sells records these days anyway, all the hype around Drake and watch him barely sell platinum……….So, as far as blowing up and all that, this is 2010, everybody steals music these days, thats why cats who are on the radio all day long cant go gold…….

    Musically tho, Slaughterhouse + Shady = High hopes
