Jack Thriller made headlines today (January 16) when he announced that he has been hired as the host for a Battle Rap reality TV show headed by Eminem. Royce Da 5’9, Eminem’s longtime friend, collaborator and a Shady Records signee, addressed “battle show rumors” with a Twitter update soon after the announcement was published.
“Don’t believe any battle show rumors until you hear it from us,” Royce said via Twitter. The Tweet also included the links to verified accounts handled by Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Crooked I, the other members of Slaughterhouse.
It is unclear whether Royce’s Twitter post was directly aimed to counter Thriller’s announcement. Thriller has since deleted his Instagram post, which is the one that announced the news originally.
