Slaughterhouse Explains Album Delay & Says Collaboration With Black Hippy Is "A Priority"

Slaughterhouse speaks on their album's delay, making a Black Hippy collabo a priority, and what other genres they listen to.

When Slaughterhouse's debut on Shady Records, welcome to: Our House, was delayed to an August release date, many fans wondered the reason. In a recent interview with Fuse, the four lyricists spoke on the matter.

"Too many different reasons, too many different variables with how we control the music," explained Joe Budden. "I mean, it gets to be an issue between label and retail, but I’m always grateful for more time.”

"It gives you more time to be creative, more time to promote and think of more ways to raise the awareness out there," added Budden. "It’s a great thing for me...8/28 is the final date."

Slaughterhouse also discussed teaming up with another quartet: Black Hippy, which is comprised of Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, and Schoolboy Q. "I spoke to Ab-Soul about it," said Budden. "It's just a natural thing. Them standing for the things that they stand for, very similar to the things that we stand for."

"Both being extremely lyrical supergroups...I'd like to try and make the inevitable happen. That's a priority for us. I'm gonna make that happen."

Slaughterhouse also discussed some possibly unexpected acts they listen to. "Kings of Leon, Hall and Oates, Barry White...I was listening to Secret Garden all yesterday," said Royce Da 5'9.

"Yesterday I was on my in-line skates listening to Radiohead," said Joell Ortiz. "Yeah, I do that. In these streets, G."

"I listen to Classical Music," said Crooked I. "Sometimes I don't want to hear a bunch of words, people yappin' all day. I hear enough of that just in my own music."

    Anonymous: these people are dumb as fuck. if they didn't make these tracks they would be saying "niggas can't make a decent song to save their life". Posted15 days ago you guys are pretty dull.. clearly each rapper does something better than the other.. I see people talking crazy about Ab-Soul but he's probably the most intelligent of the rappers.. If I put up my list OVERALL though considering all aspects KDOT is easily tops, then Solo, Joey, Crooked, Royce, and then Joell/Jay Rock.. you guys give Crooked and Royce so much props but they are really just aesthically appealing more than anything.. they are bar after bar of punlines.. I dig substance, not that they don't have it. At the end of the day Black Hippy and Slaughter both are amazing lyricists and rappers in their own respective ways. Just realize when y'all argue who is better than who they are all on Interscope now.. and if they collab it isn't to see who's best it's to give fans a combination of their favorite rappers. In closing shut your fucking mouths and enjoy the music.

    "this is gonna be a good pop rap album" If TRL was still around Slaughterhouse would have alot of fans who haven't graduated junior high yet.

I really dig slaughterhouse but something is telling me their gonna endup with a sellout album like yelawolf. MMMAAANNN MAKE SUM GANGSTA SHIT FOR THE HOMIES IN THE HOOD. NOT THESE FUCKING RADIO STIFFS...DONT LISTEN TO THE RADIO ANYWAYS

      homies in the hood don't fuck with slaughterhouse anyway lmao

    • Anonymous

      Well, "Homies in the hood" don't support. If so, they had hundreds of oppurtunities to support these guys when they made music for the "Homies in the hood", so don't act like a bitch because they're catering to crowd that will support them.

  • oldschool4life

    all i have to say is that this album better be lyrically incredible if there talking about all there pushbacks to be creative and what not fuck the beats fuck the hooks i wanna hear some rakim, nas, em, sick bars come out there mouths budden said "fuck record sales or who the machine markets best" so i have a feeling they are currently selling out with all this bs... Id buy there first albums every week if they remained the only emcees in the game

    Only person I want to see collaborating with black hippy is Crooked-I... he is right. Joell is annoying as fuck. Joe budden is dope but needs work on his monotone ass voice. Royce is dope but doesn't rap serious enough to be taken seriously. Crook is the most versatile with the illest voice. Pure skill

    Dogshit "music" for dogshit people... ** THREE ** flop singles in a row too, sweet!! They sucked on Koch, they such even worse on Shady...

  • Slaughterhouse is overrated

    "Yesterday I was on my in-line skates listening to Radiohead" Probably to go to the Drive thru at Wendy's after they closed it to walk in's...

    G-Unit Records nowadays: G-Unit Lloyd Banks Tony Yayo DJ Whoo Kid Spider Loc Hot Rod Governor Lea DJ Pauly D Shawty Lo D4L Records Genasis Kidd Kidd Precious Paris Trav What are you sayin? Wack?! Yes indeed... Banks is the only great rapper on the label.

    oh and obv theyll have a bunch of european tour dates i just dont get how theyre planning on selling out shows on an american tour..lmao europeans love rap in general it could be eminem performing fack, and theyll love it..

  • dzbk

    the idea of that collaboration sounds terrible, one groups failure is gonna rub off on black hippy's?? dont fuck up another groups potential just because one group can't get it together, lmao keep both those groups as far apart as possible, jimmy.. lmao it will not work it'll only sound stupid as fuck especially with joells annoying ass voice on it..omg i cant wait to hear how bad this is going to sound..and i was a slaughterhouse fan until they basically fuckd up their major label debut, nd theres no debating that, the album comes out in about a lil more than a month..
