"It’s a crazy battle [event] ‘cause you got Murda Mook and Loaded Lux, two of the O.G.s in this battle shit," Crooked I says to Battle Rap. "They’re going to headline it along with Joe Budden who is the wildcard because, why is he battling? He’s a reality star. He’s signed to a mainstream label. He has to reason to go and try to get into that fucking arena, but he’s just showing people he’s an emcee and a gladiator. It’s so dope to have that event going down and it’s all centered around our TV show [Road To] Total Slaughter, so it’s just a great thing. Slaughterhouse, we produced it along with Eminem, and it’s a beautiful opportunity for Hip Hop as a whole and we’re just blessed to be part of it."
