Eminem is welcoming Compton rapper Boogie to Shady Records. The union was announced on Tuesday (Oct. 11), just one day after Marshall Mathers’ explosive anti-Donald Trump verse hit the BET Hip-Hop Awards.

Boogie — who stood behind Em during the freestyle — joins the Shady Records family after building buzz through his Interscope releases. Last year, his acclaimed song “Ni**a Needs” and its video even earned praise from Rihanna, who once called him her “new fav.”
In the last three years, Boogie has released a series of projects, including Thirst 48, The Reach, and last year’s Thirst 48, Pt. II, which featured the aforementioned “Ni**a Needs,” as well as collaborations with DJ Quik, Mozzy, and K Camp.
