New Interview: Royce 5’9″ and D12 Talk About the Legacy of Shady Records



Royce Da 5’9″ and D12 (Kuniva, Swifty McVay and Denaun) have recently set down with Sway In The Morning for an interview where they talked about Detroit, legacy of Shady Records, Eminem and according to Royce, Marshall opened the doors for Detroit rappers to get the record deal:

“I don’t know if you realize but every single rapper from our era got signed. We came up in the era where nobody from our era had a record deal at all. Marshall was the first person to get a record deal in Detroit in a lot of years. And don’t get me wrong, we had local legends. People like that were just making an impact on us and influenced us as kids but it was unheard for anybody to have a record deal. So when Marshall got his deal, every single person that I met at Hip Hop Shop got signed.”
