Filipino artist Ez Mil just inked a deal with Eminem and Dr. Dre in a joint venture between Shady Records, Aftermath Entertainment, and Interscope Records, becoming the second artist, next to 50 Cent, signed directly to all three labels.
Ez will release the upcoming deluxe edition of his 2022 LP, DU4LI7Y: REDUX, on August 11, which includes the Eminem-featured “Realest” single.
“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,” Eminem said.
“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,” he 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,” Dr. Dre added.
