Slaughterhouse Speaks On Shady Records Debut

The fearsome foursome gives an update on the project, which they hope to have in stores by the end of the year.

While in Detroit, Michigan for a cameo in Royce Da 5’9” and Eminem’s upcoming video for "Fast Lane," super group Slaughterhouse has revealed new information regarding their Shady Records debut. The collective, consisting of Royce, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden and Crooked I, explained that they were happy to have time to record their upcoming LP, which they hope to have in stores by Christmas. 

“We just getting started. We’re not going to rush it. We was behind the 8-ball with the last album. We had to get it done in six days,” Royce told MTV News’ Sway. “So just having an opportunity where time is not an issue, budget’s not an issue, we just gonna go in there and knock it out.”

In comparison to their eponymous 2009 debut, they haven’t varied their approach. “I wouldn’t say the concept has changed so much. Same things that we all have in common, the same things that the group was comprised from are still intact,” added Budden. “Still a very lyrical group, very capable group, very hungry, passionate - just animals. And we have one of the best animals now supporting us.”

The group, recording for the album while in the D, is slated to have Eminem’s stamp of approval. “I run everything by him, just ‘cause I trust his ear. And he has OCD, so he’ll nitpick my song apart,” said Nickel Nine. “So even with my solo stuff, anything I do, I try to run it by him. So he is like an A&R, I guess.”

    Sure ya'll aren't thinking of Joell's straight BREASTS? Son can wolf down them White Castle, I'll say that.

    NO. These were trash then and are trash now. Joell hasn't done shit worthwhile since half his first album; Royce is lifetime mediocrity and the other two aren't even that. LAUGHTERHOUSE is pure ** hype ** by dipshit battlerap nerds. Eminem picking them up is hopeless and only gives false hope for their inevitable FAILURE. Nobody cares about LAUGHTERHOUSE and nobody should. RANDOM AXE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      Please take a gun, fill it with bullets, point it at your head, and pull the trigger faggot.

    • ItsTheTruth

      Do yourself a favor and get a copy of Joe Budden's Mood Muzik 4 and if you aint feelin that then go listen to the fake niggas like ross and weezy. And just cuz you don't understand what they spit and that shit goes over your head, that doesnt make them "hype". That just makes you ignorant.

    Four fucking retards: Royce Da' 59 IQ is Em's AFFIRMATIVE ACTION charity case. Joell Ortiz is a stone loser except maybe in a White Castle eating contest. Budden ** is ** LAUGHTERHOUSE. Who's a Crooked I? now RANDOM AXE is a motherfucking group.

  • Kyrie Philbrook

    Joe Budden is the G.O.A.T.

  • slruim

    Haha, Crooked doesn't get a mic. Is he like the group bitch? because in everything ive seen them together he almost never gets to talk (unless spoken to) or he is always in the back.....

  • Ears

    Does Royce ever NOT mention Em???????

    • Anonymous

      That's one thing I've never liked about Royce. He's always mentioning Eminem's name. He sounds like a slave trying to get approval from his master. Royce: "Yassuh, boss. Anything you say, boss. Can I live in the big house now, boss?"

    • Anonymous

      Haze STFU Royce mentions him constantly I never speak about my boss Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, Joe Budden barely if EVER speak about Eminem

      Butthurt groupie defending anything about his idols, identifying himself with their success while he hasn't had anything that deserves to be called success by himself. Not everybody likes your favorite aritst, get the fuck over it.

    • yup
