Published Aug 17, 2009Bobby Creekwater has left Shady Records. The Atlanta rapper made the announcement over the weekend, saying his decision to leave Eminem's imprint was strictly a business decision and that there was no bad blood.
"That particular relationship wasn't helping, as far as the plans I had for Bobby Creekwater, so we parted ways," he told Mauricegarland.com in an interview, adding that he did not get dropped. "I felt like it was time to move on so I made a phone call to [Shady co-founder] Paul [Rosenberg]... I said I think it's time for me to go my way. He said he understood."
Creekwater went on to say that labels can often "choose to be assholes" by holding on to an artist wanting to leave, but that Rosenberg did no such thing.
"He understood my plight and I appreciate him for that," Creekwater said.
Creekwater signed to Shady in 2005. He appeared on 2006's Eminem Presents the Re-Up, a compilation designed to launch him and other new Shady artists Stat Quo and Cashis.
Creekwater's mixtape The Day It All Made $ense is expected to drop later this month.
