During MTV's RapFix Live yesterday, the four horsemen of Shady sat down with Sway to make a special announcement... that they will both judge and produce a new reality show, "The Road To Total Slaughter".
The Shady Records crew explained that the new show will pit eight battle rappers against one another, in a bracket style competition, with four rappers on each side. "The winner of each side will co-headline the main event, [with] two legends in the battle game," Royce said. "It's probably the biggest battle you can put on right now, on behalf of Shady Records, Shady TV and Slaughterhouse."
To make it more captivating, viewers at home will get to know each contestant better throughout the show. "It's a reality series as well, 'The Road to Total Slaughter,'" Joe said. "We're gonna put those eight guys in a house, they're gonna live with each other for a week and you're gonna be able to see them prepare for it as well."
The eight rappers participating in the show will be Dizaster, Math Hoffa, Daylyt, Arsonal, Cortez, Marv Won, Big T and Aye Verb, artists that Slaughterhouse describe as "top tier battlers" and "assassins."
"It's giving these guys a platform that they didn't have before," Royce told Sway. "Everybody knows they're great if you follow them, so the goal is to put not only them, but battle rap itself, on this platform."
Unfortunately the crew didn't reveal too many details about their upcoming new album, but... hey, they have a reality show coming out!
