Slaughterhouse Describes Learning From Eminem & Each Other

Slaughterhouse's members explain some of the things they've gained from working with Eminem and one another.

When Slaughterhouse partnered with Eminem by signing to his Shady Records label, the move brought together five of Hip Hop's most renowned lyricists. It's no surprise, then, that the emcees have learned much from each other.

"Marshall is the type that he never really stops recording," said Royce Da 5'9 of Em in an interview with MTV News. "When you go in the studio, he's in the back room where the booth is, and the door is locked. Nobody's allowed back there."

"Nobody ever knows what he's doing," added Royce about his Bad Meets Evil partner. "All I know is that he's constantly working."

Joe Budden chimed in on the learning process that he and his group mates have gone through. "I think all of us have been around long enough and are humble enough to know the appropriate time to be a sponge, and this entire process, all of us have done nothing but that, as well as sponging off each other," said Budden.

"So for me, it's been a learning process throughout the entire time, and I can say the same thing for these brothers because I hear it in their music as well. We're just blessed."

Crooked I seconded that statement, lauding his partners in rhyme. "I just want to say I feel like these guys right here are some of the best rappers I've ever heard rapping, ever. I'm a student of Hip Hop — since Rakim, LL Cool J, KRS-One, I've been a student, and to hear these guys rap, to me, these are some of the best rappers I've ever heard in my life."

    "Look what Success Is Certain sold, coming fresh off the wave of Hell: The Sequel" It was being sold for $7.99, and wasn't being displayed in the new release section in most stores. Point being, it wasn't a surprise it flopped, but at least Royce got it out there.

    Slaughterhouse needs to sell at least 250,000 first week to justify the hype, maybe more.

  • NickleBACK

    It's really funny how everyone shits on them for signing to Shady and being sell-outs. I mean look kids, hip-hop is mainstream. Get the fuck over it. Lil Wayne, is mainstream as FUCK. I swear there are so many fucking trolls and haters this site just gets annoying as shit. Hip-Hop has evolved. People keep saying Wayne is saving hip hop. You kidding me? Suck on KRS-One's nut sack. That's hip-hop. Everyone in slaughterhouse has respect for the great's in the game...Pac, Biggie, Pun, Rakim, Gangs Starr...etc. Hate all the fuck you want, they are talented, lyrical, and funny. I love that they fuck around all the time, they don't take themselves to serious. They have fun, they enjoy hip-hop. But NO we gotta act all gangster as fuck like Officer Ricky and brag about connects when his ass was a CO. Hip-Hop is so fucking fake and hypocritical these days. They come up from the underground, they don't have to prove they can rap, and now ALL you do is troll and shit-talk. Instead of being happy someone from the underground is making it. Get a fucking life.

    Sadly, they will flop. Look what "Success Is Certain" sold, coming fresh off the wave of "Hell: The Sequel". Eminem fans don't give a shit about his artists. This move was doomed since the beginning. They should've went to Strange Music. Slaughterhosue are great rappers, but they are simply NOT marketable to the mainstream audience. It won't work, no matter who's behind them.

    • akaspon

      Why do you care if Slaughterhouse's music is "marketable"? Are you an A&R or a fan? For them to be the type of group they are and get the respect from one of the top Hip Hop artists of our generation and for an album to ACTUALLY drop is a blessing to those who love this music. I could care less about how marketable they are or what their singles did. Honestly, if they didn't have ANY integrity they would just throw 2 Chains and Nicki Minaj on a song and have Drake sing some corny hook...but that is not what they did, so just sit back and enjoy or throw it away...pun intended...

    • Anonymous

      If My Life was feat Cee Lo and Eminem that woulda been a huge hit, and instead of releasing throw it away as a third single they shoulda released one of the skylar grey tracks. Their image isnt marketable but SOME of their musici s.

    flophouse first week numbers will make Yelawolf looking like a multi-platinum artist Face it, Eminem IS successful (that's the reason why these annoying guys spit his name in every interview, you wouldn't probably click on that if there is not word "Eminem" present), these guys not and neither of Shady's artists were or will successful, let's count: - Obie Trice (first album good, second flopped, got kicked and fell off) - Yelawolf - mixtapes without shady good, but album flopped and was horrible - Stat Quo, Cashis - haven't released ANY album on Shady and fell off as well - Bobby Creekwater - I don't even know who the fuck is that guy - D12 - fell off, proof died, everyone except eminem is probably broke and the list goes on, Bad Meets Evil - only successful because of Eminem signing to Shady is a suicide, I wonder why they are not under the different label... probably no one wants to sing them

      It's just annoying as fuck, it was cool before, you know, Em's a legend and shit, no wonder they were excited. But these dudes been there before, dropped classic material without Em, they acting like he taught them to rap. There's a difference between recognizing someone's talent, experience and knowledge or elevating him to some kind of mythological god. You want to hear them talking about themselves and THEIR approach to the album and you hear nothing but Eminem in every fucking interview. Besides, what did they tell that the world didn't know before about him?

  • Anonymous

    I don't remember them sucking off Eminem so much when they first started as a group. It's just embarrassing to watch at this point. I love their first album, but their direction took a horrible change. All for nothing, they won't sell shit anyways, the mainsstream will never recognize their talent. They all failed as solo artists on a mainstream level, what is them telling they won't as a group? The people who ignored them before will think: "Oh, 4 overly lyrical guys spitting doubletime and puchlines that actually make you think? That's too much at the same time, I need dem beats and a dude rambling over them who sounds like a retard, nigga".

      the first album was ok at best. But I feel your point. Grown men sucking EM's penis on air is weak. Especially as that nigga overrated as hell.
