Joe Budden Says Slaughterhouse "Dug Much Deeper" For Next Album

Joe Budden also compares recording Slaughterhouse albums and solo albums.

Joe Budden fans twice as much reason to look forward two the next Slaughterhouse album: not only will the project feature Budden (as usual), but it will also take on the flavor of earlier Joe Budden work.

"I'm really looking forward to the Slaughterhouse project, partly because this album will be very much like earlier Joe Budden albums," said Budden in an interview with MTV's RapFix Live. "Very deep, very introspective and very personal. All of the guys really went in, took it to a different place and just dug much deeper this album, so I really can't wait for the release of this one to see how fans take to it."

Budden also compared recording solo work versus projects with Slaughterhouse. "[Those projects] are apples and oranges," he said. "To go from Slaughterhouse where you have to contribute one verse and some thoughts, to having to construct an entire song on your own, it's just two different worlds, but I appreciate them both for what they both are."

Regardless, Budden cautions there might be a wait for the next Slaughterhouse project. "We're not [releasing] nothing while [Eminem] is coming out," said Budden. "Let him go ahead and sell his 20 million records and then when he's finished, we'll roll out," he said, laughing.

    "You're empty of values, principles, experience, facts, reality. And nothing to try to say or spin can hide this transparency that is filled in your comments" You sound like a guy whose been bullied half his life, either at home, or in the streets. Your insecurities could fill a book. I merely use your emotions againsn't you, getting you to react to everything because it's that easy. You can create all the weird, made up profiles in your head that you want, but at the end of the day I have a life and everything else that goes with it while all you have is this site, and those insecurities we've already discussed. I'd offer to get you some help but I kinda want to see you fall flat on your face, AGAIN! lol Come on son. Put some punch in those girl blows you try throwing.

    "oh? so why did GOOD Music's compilation do well? And who believes what Ross says, he's been lying since his first song!" Do well? It barely went gold. Based on its budget, it needed to do at least 2x platinum.

    Oh by the way all your TDE fans, with the exception of Kendrick, slaughterhouse shit on all of you at the Cyphers. If I was mobb Deep I would be embarrassed at the injustice they did to that track. Q was wack, Rock was wack, Ab Soul looked like he rather be home watching the hip hop awards. Thank God you all are associated with Kendrick, that's why XXL puts Kendrick Lamar and Black Hippy because he carrying all of you right now.

    haha I love it all these "real hip hop" head in here. Your the probably the same type of people who don't listen to someone because they "sold out". First off, nobody is true hip hop head that only listens to real hip hop. I love lyrical rap but im not bumping black star in my ride when im hanging out with a bunch of girls because that shit don't se te mood for the night. You know all you niggas were bumping "big pimpin, spending the g's I be big pimpin up in nyc, its just the jigga man" you know you were, but does that make Jay Z irrelevant as a rapper? Is he still not one of the greatest? Your all in here judging a rapper based on who is affiliated with, or what kind of clothes he wears or how much is album sold, instead of the content in their music, which really only leave me to believe one thing: Your all still in high school. So go back to class and talk to your friends about how drake and meek mill are the greatest and leave the "real hip hop" discussion to people who have been alive long enough to know who kool g rap, rakim and scarface are.

    "you clowning one group for numbers, but bigging up another crew with lesser numbers, making excuses and inter-galactic theories" A supergroup no less who had the biggest rapper in the world doing everything but wipe their noses and they still tanked. Anybody with a brain knows the Self Made compilations don't do numbers. They're simply to tide fans over until the real albums drop. Ross has even said this in interviews, down syndrome boy. Your parents really must feel immense guilt for how you turned out.

      And he still trying, lol "Your parents really must feel immense guilt for how you turned out." ^ uh-oh, what I said about Quote-Man in that article about 50's son really hit home! "Anybody with a brain knows the Self Made compilations don't do numbers" ^ oh? so why did GOOD Music's compilation do well? And who believes what Ross says, he's been lying since his first song! See if daddy cared to have some man to man talks with you, you would know to just admit your wrong and accept your mistakes, but it's obvious he didn't and mommy didn't care to guide you either. They just gave you whatever to shut you the f*ck up like a crying infant. Now that you're an adult, their neglect is blatant. You're empty of values, principles, experience, facts, reality. And nothing to try to say or spin can hide this transparency that is filled in your comments. Now go slam your keyboard goofball.

    "Mainly because when the head of the label (Em) decides that he wants to take over all creative control for an album, not much anyone in Slaughterhouse can say to stop him. He edited the tracks" Interscope gets the final say though. It's their investment on the line. I agree Eminem was their boss and realistically was going to want to do certain things his way, but these are grown men who should have had the guts to speak up when the vision of the album was going off course.

    why is this website always filled with a bunch of trolling haters, like please just fuck off, i swear no matter whose on this website, from eminem, to lil wayne, to chief keep, somebodys always got negative shit to say about any artist, it's like yall hate EVERY RAPPER go listen to a new genre then damn

      Are you really going to compare these two entirely different albums and sets of expectations? Of course you are. Your obsessed with Rozay's downfall. Anyway, Welcome was hyped to no end, and was expected to be a semi classic. Self Made 3 seemed thrown together and was clearly meant to hold fans over until Mastermind drops. In the end, you and Slaughter pathetic, Ross and WB caked up.

    "Welcome to: Our House" was a well-deserved flop both critically and commercially, saddest part of the story is that Eminem is single-handedly responsible for the fall of the project. Especially that he is the ONLY person in mainstream hip-hop who has the resources and initiative to drop a hardcore album from a lyrical super group with top-notch support. They were / are in a favoured position, practically every circumstances were given to the birth of a true hip-hop classic. And what we got? Exactly. In my opinion, what he felt to see is there's no in-betweens when it comes to groups like Slaughterhouse. Lyrical hip-hop's target audience is tight, and highly differs from fans of mainstream rap. Eminem tried to combine best of both world with those more modern, occasionally pop-like beats; and ended up sitting on the floor between two chairs. Never worked, never going to work. Too softcore for traditional hip-hop fans, not enough catchy for casuals. That kind of general approach were my biggest disappointment by far in this project. So if I (and I believe many of us) were Eminem, I'd reach out for carefully selected producers, book a few days with each in the near future, then lock the actual person in the studio with Slaughterhouse. Veterans like DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Madlib, RZA etc. would be definitely involced, but why you wouldn't let dope in-house and / or affiliates (Alchemist, Just Blaze, DJ Khalil etc.) a shot as well? Meanwhile send a word to nowadays heavy hitters to e-mail something for that fits to an LP like this, who knows, maybe on of them throw a real jewel on you. Last but not least, Eminem should involve Dr. Dre and himself in the project. You don't have to be on it in 24/7, but fill an overseer role. Do a few beats by yourself when you're in the mood. Just make sure the album can stand on his own to feet, has an identity / soul, and not afraid to be what it's meant to be. Money-related issues like budget for production, studio time, guest features, radio play shouldn't be an issue. At least for a man in a position like Eminem. Same goes for sales too, don't expect to make millions in such endeavour. If nothing else, Em himself could cover every expenses from his own pocket, it would be pennies for such a wealthy man. On the other hand, it would be an exceptional effort for hip-hop (as a culture) in general, as well as a reminded that he haven't forgot his roots. Eminem is much more than hip-hop, yet (despite the similarities in certain areas) Slaughterhouse is not Eminem - so unless he start treating them accordingly to their true profile, we couldn't expect to see a proper Slaughterhouse project from Shady Records.

    • sam snead

      I agree with most of the articles statements, the first album and the mixtape were better than the album under shady records. Shady records is a crap label to be on in general. Take the album bad meets evil, sold pretty well but when they were supposed to release the album and perform it, eminem left royce to perform it himself at the release party. I have not heard much from stat quo, Cashis or bobby creekwater. Then he finally decides to produce something after obie trice and its just crap hooks and pop beats.

    • you speak truth

      you obviously know hip hop and it shold go but the your talkin if companies followed that script then hip hop would have never been the bad shape its in now at some point they have to take blame for that crap of an album too. yeah em is the boss so if he so jump they say off what cliff nahmean so understand if you ran shady or any other company then you would be early rawkus but this pop now so industry doesnt want people to think so even if they could come off like that and have that recipe of how you say they still corny enough to fall off for a buck so at the end of the day its the artist decision to look bad which is what they did

      horrible lyrics, fuck that. the lyrics were the best part of the album, save for a few songs. it's the beats which were questionable and some didn't fit, where their mixtape On the House had much better beats

    • Anonymous

      actually it really was his fault. Mainly because when the head of the label (Em) decides that he wants to take over all creative control for an album, not much anyone in Slaughterhouse can say to stop him. He edited the tracks, he chose which ones would make the album and he sat with them during recording sessions and told them if or not he was feeling something. How could they not listen? It's Eminem right? Eminem's name wasnt on the front of the album but it might as well coulda been. It wasnt a SH album.

    • Anonymous

      Whoever wrote that article has no idea how the industry really works. It's not Eminem's fault. It wasn't his name on the front of the CD. He merely produced tracks. It was Slaugherhouse's fault for writing horrible lyrics, and basically phoning it in for a payday.

    wasnt impressed with their last album, but at the same time it wasnt terrible...this has been an awful year for slaughterhouse so far...crooked I is easily in my top 5 of all time, but even his album was bad...i know they made a killing off it, and they wont if they go back to their old style....please slaughterhouse, dont sell out twice in a row, i hope buddens right

      Yeah it may have been more "pop" but they still brought it lyrically. Didn't bother me at all.

  • ky

    the great thing about both slaughter and yela are that they both seen to really learn from their mistakes. Slaughter really redeemed themselves for me with their non-retail freestyles/other songs and yela with TMR. So the radio sound probably was more the environment change than being forced to do that for sales. Yela's project with dj paul this week, em's project after that, and after that probably yela's love story and slaughter's album. Hope there's no push backs like there was last time. looking forward to their shit

    Sounds good, people don't give Slaughterhouse's introspective work enough credits. Raindrops was probably the best song off their debut, Truth or Truth is one of the best on the mixtape and Goodbye was top 2 on the album. I do hope there's a couple songs where they just spaz out lyrically tho.
