Eminem Reveals Slaughterhouse Album Release Date & Talks Beastie Boys

Eminem provides a hard date for Slaughterhouse's album release, and says the Beastie Boys "made me want to rap."

June came and went without Slaughterhouse dropping welcome to: Our House, their debut album on Eminem's Shady Records. 

In a recent interview with DJ Whoo Kid on Shade 45, Em provided a hard date for his latest signees. "The album's coming out August 28. I'm actually finishing up one of the songs for it today, as we speak."

"I rap their verses for them," joked Em. "I present it for them like, 'Yo, here's how you guys should say this, here's what you should say,' and then that's pretty much how you do it."

Eminem also spoke on the passing of the Beastie Boys' Adam "MCA" Yauch, explaining their impact on Hip Hop. "It's really sad. It's really a shame. The Beastie Boys mean so much, have always meant so much since they came out, and mean so much to Hip Hop. All three of those guys. It's really, I don't know man, it's really sad."

"When License To Ill Came Out, that shit changed rap," he added.

Em offered his condolences to the Beastie Boys, as well as Yauch's family, expressing their impact on him. "My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole group, and Adam's family, and everybody. It's just a really sad situation. Those guys and LL made me want to rap. When I saw the Beastie Boys for the first time, you know, 'Fight For Your Right to Party,' when I seen that video...it made me realize that it was possible. Just seeing that and being like, 'whoa, holy shit!' They were killin' it."

    "If it wasn't for Straight Outta Compton, half your favorite rappers wouldn't be here today!" Ok, that's ridiculous. NWA had some good songs. Not disputing that, but if you go back and try listening to an entire album of their's, it's painful and dated.

    "Straight Outta Compton" No way this is a classic.

  • Jacc

    I like Licensed to Ill, but it ain't better than Straight Outta Compton.

    • @Mortis

      Your list is shit because you put Tha Carter 3 in there out of the hundreds of hip-hop classics. That album was overrated.

    • Mortis

      Oops. I'm sorry. I meant to say, Top 5 Hip Hop Albums WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT BITCH: 1 - Illmatic 2 - Straight Outta Compton 3 - It Takes a Nation of Millions 4 - Criminal Minded 5 - Licensed to Ill

    • ^^^^

      Replace Tha Carter 3 with Criminal Minded and you got a list.

    the only reason this piece of shit won't be pushed back AGAIN is Interscope is cutting their losses; it's obvious Em's pity party was totally misguided. Laughterhouse sucked on Kock and there worse now. Joell is fat whining fuck and 'free agent' for life after this.

    Laughterhouse on the verge of failure, again, and even the white boy can't help-- JUSTICE!!! Four fucking bums x wack ass White producer with guilt over Proof dying = LAUGHTERHOUSE. ZERO POINT ZERO

      lil wyte sucks. i bought phinally phamous years ago thinking it would be alright but he's awful. i can't believe he still has money to make more music. i can't believe three 6 actually thought he would be good. what a waste of time he's been. he couldn't hold a torch to any one of the beastie boys alone.

    Eminem Next Album Should Be Featured Guests: B.o.B, Dr. Dre, Nas, Slaughterhouse, T.I. Producers: Boi-1da, DJ Khalil, DJ Premier, Dr. Dre (Mel-Man co.), Eminem (Jeff Bass co.), Jim Jonsin, Just Blaze, Kanye West, Mr. Porter

    • ETK

      @name: are you so detached of life that your brain is affected? all three statements: that nobody can make free throws(Allen), make jumpshots(Durant, Rose) or can make a great album with little guests(Killer Mike, Phonte, Lupe(except Lasers)) all of those statements are retarded. it's not by listening to Rick Ross and The Game's albums, or watching Dwight Howard play that you can say stupid shit like that

    • beezlebud

      Royce had mad guests on Street Hop he had Crooked I, Joell plus a 3rd track with all of Slaughterhouse, Kid Vishis, Bun B, Busta Rhymes, K.Young, Trick Trick ETC on it Torae just put out For the Record with zero features

    • name

      music sucks now. solo albums don't even exist anymore. everybody's got featured guests on every damn song cuz they want every song to be a single. how do you showcase your talen if you've got 2-3 guests on every song? eminem is the only exception. he had one guest on his first album. he only had 2 or 3 songs on mmlp with guests. eminem show had obie and dre. encore had 50, dre, stat quo across 2 or 3 songs. relapse had no guests. recovery had rihanna and lil wayne. that's how you make a solo album. royce's street hop album had guests on one song i think. none of these terrible rappers out now know what the fuck they're doing. labels just sign them cuz their pants sag below their crack and they grab their crotch. nobody has any real talent anymore. same thing going on in the nba. everybody can dunk and run, but nobody can shoot free throws or make a 15 foot jump shot. i'm done with mainstream hip hop and the nba. all a bunch of shit.

    It doesn't take months to fine tune a few songs. It's Em name on the line for endorsing these vultures.

    • Anonymous

      One song can take months to record, weeks to mix, and another month or two to master. You don't know what you're talking about.

    • Anonymous

      ^I think you're overexaggerating a little bit. its hard work mixing songs but it should not takes months under any circumstances. not for "a few" songs. an album? absolutely. but this album has been complete. tweeking a few songs shouldnt take months

    • Anonymous

      You don't know about working on 48 track boards, redoing drums because they came out flat during the final mix-down, having a rapper re-record a verse or part because the delivery wasn't right, reorganizing the song after mastering because it doesn't sound like it did before mastering. You don't know what it takes, because if you did you wouldn't have dismissed the real hard work to make a song just so you could talk that gossip you're speaking on.
