Update (3/4): It's here! The full version of Complex's documentary Not Afraid: The Shady Records Story has arrived. The half-hour film chronicles the label's journey and features a handful of interviews with Eminem and his manager, Paul Rosenberg, as well as 50 CentDr. Dre and Royce Da 5’9″. Watch it above!

Original Story: With the fifteenth anniversary of Shady Records right around the corner, Eminem and longtime manager Paul Rosenberg are celebrating their hip hop kingdom in big, badass ways. The pair just released Shady XV, a huge two-disc compilation featuring classics and new tracks from the label's roster. Before that massive undertaking, the pair released a 66-track, three-hour mixtape of previously released material called Shady Classics.

Now the dynamic duo are gearing up for Not Afraid: The Shady Records Story, a Complex documentary on the men behind the records. The film will revisit the label's past and investigate their future.

"Where do we see it going from here? Completely f*cking downhill," Eminem declares in the clip. "Yeah, we're f*cked. We're not gonna change. Why would we change?"

He's got a point! Watch the clip here and make sure to check out our complete guide to Shady XV.
