So last year rumors of Slaughterhouse (the Hip Hop supergroup consisting of Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joel Ortiz, and Royce Da 5'9") signing to Eminem's Shady Records were running rampant all over the Internet. The rumors were mostly the result of their appearance with Eminem during his verse in Drake's video for "Forever" and the recent reconciliation between Eminem and Royce Da 5'9". It seemed that label politics stopped the deal from happening, and the prospect of Hip Hops best new group of lyricists signing to the label of one of Hip Hops greatest MCs would be lost for now. That is, until all the the Twitter rumors started acting up:

"RT @Floss_B: @RoyceDaFive9 what surprise does #Slaughterhouse have for the fans tomorrow? (I'm impatient)<- patience my good man.." - Royce Da 5'9" Twitter
The trending topic from then on was all about Slaughterhouse signing to Shady Records. The next announcement from Eminem's Twitter seemed to only reinforce everyones suspicions:

"And don't worry. Some big news is coming. Soon." - via Eminem's Twitter around 10pm Central (yesterday)

"And if you like the whiteboy, then yo ass might as well start liking me too, cuz from here on out anytime you see gon' see me too" - via Royce Da 5'9" Nobody F*ckin Wit Us (Bar Exam 3 leak this morning).

I know this doesn't seem like much evidence but in this day and age Twitter has replaced most media outlets as the number one source for breaking news - 140 Characters has replaced 60 Minutes. SMH!! I guess we'll find out once Slaughterhouse makes their announcement, until then check out Slaughterhouse holdin' Em down in Drake's "Forever" Video:
