Joe Budden Says Eminem Has Limited Involvement On Slaughterhouse Album

Joe Budden calls Slaughterhouse's upcoming album, "Glass House," the group's "most personal body of work to date."

Following the release of 2012’s welcome to: Our House, Shady Records’ own Slaughterhouse is gearing up for the release of their third studio album, Glass House. According to Slaughterhouse emcee Joe Budden, the album is slated for release either late spring or early summer.

In addition to revealing an approximate release date for the album, Budden shared a few other details about the LP during a recent interview. While speaking with Hip Hop Since 1987, Budden spoke on Shady Records helmsman Eminem’s involvement on the project. He says Em played a limited role on the album due to the fact that he was working on an album of his own.

“Well, this time around he was also working on his album while we were working on our album,” Budden said. “So, he hasn’t gotten a chance or the opportunity to be as involved as he was last time, but he still gives suggestions. He still lends his input via phone or still communicates as much as he can, however he can.”

Budden, who currently serves as a star on the VH1 reality series “Love & Hip Hop,” referred to Slaughterhouse’s upcoming album as a “transparent” project that is the group’s “most personal” album to date. And although he commented on Just Blaze executive producing Glass House, he remained tight-lipped about artist features and producers on his next solo project, All Love Lost.

“We locked in with Just Blaze who is executive producing Slaughterhouse’s third studio album called Glass House coming late spring, early summer on Shady/Interscope Records,” the Slaughterhouse rapper said. “The album is called Glass House because it’s extremely transparent, a very personal—by far our most personal body of work to date. I can’t wait for the fans to hear it. I have simultaneously been working on my next solo project, which is called All Love Lost.

“I’m not telling anything. It’s too soon. It’s too premature,” he added. “We’re gonna keep the features at a bare minimum. The production, we’ll get into that closer to the day. But for songs that we have recorded so far, I’m extremely pleased with and I’m not going to put the album out until I’m happy with it. Like I’m really trying to take my time [with this one] and really make the album I know I’m capable of making.”

In addition to speaking on the transparency of Glass House during his interview with Hip Hop Since 1987, in a post made via Twitter this month, Budden stated that the album will boast “a real Budden-esque undertone.”

"Not to take credit at all, but I feel like the new Slaughterhouse album has a real Budden-esque undertone," Budden said in a tweet made on January 13.

Budden’s solo album, All Love Lost, will serve as a follow up to the New Jersey wordsmith’s No Love Lost project. Released last February, the album included guest appearance from Lil Wayne, Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and numerous other artists.

    I bought both of Slaughterhouse's albums. I really like both, but overall, SH 1st album is more of an str8 hip hop album. Their 2nd album tried to pull in more fans and sell more records. They had a bigger budget. SH 2nd album ain't horrible as some ppl thinks. Yeah, some choruses sucked and beats also, but i listened to that album from start-to-finish, and i would give it an 3/5. Tracks like 'Goodbye" is what i want to hear from SH. Not tracks like "Throw it away", wasn't too bad but not one of SH strengths. Drop more tracks like "Microphone"

    Keeping features to a bare minimum is NOT a good idea. They need to collaborate with more artists this time around to keep this album interesting. Guest verses from say a Talib Kweli or a Pharoahe Monch, Phonte, Ab Soul, Kendrick Lamar, Elzhi, Tyler the Creator or even 50 Cent would go a long way. Shake it up. Nothing brings interest to a song like a dream collaboration. And bring in outside artists for more than just the chorus. PLEASE!!!! ...And Eminem with little to no involvement is probably one of the best things that could happen to a project.

    • epic

      Oh it was...like in 2008-2009. I'll still buy the album regardless. I just like seeing well respected artists branch work with other well respected artists.

      I thought the "dream" collaboration was the group itself..oh no? not anymore?

    slaughterhouse has the bars, but their production needs to showcase it more and everyone already expects them to fire flame spit every time, maybe they should try a diff. approach to glass house

      No one cares about how much money they make boy. They're albums/music is trash boy. BET freestyles aren't albums boy

      depends what you mean by a flop...every album these guys have made have sold, maybe they didnt go #1 but they are all millionaires from music...if your talking about the quality of the album, ill agree with you..their last one was nowhere near the quality of their first album...everyone in the group is fucking insane, well maybe besides budden...but the other 3 Eespecially crooked I ) pick up buddens slack

  • sam snead

    good, keep eminem away from it, maybe a verse and that's it. I hope they have a premo beat as well on it. I think this album will be what the second album should have been, at least I hope

  • What???

    I've never seen someone get so much attention for doing so little like Ho Budden. Fact is he's the 3rd or 4th best lyricist in his own group, a cornball who got his ass turned down by a chicken head and has been lyrically slaughtered by game. What has Ho budden done since pump it up besides bitch about Jay Z and get owned by Game?

    • Anonymous

      why dont you listen to some of his songs if you dont know what hes done....ill agree that hes the worst in slaughterhouse..but there is a song every now and then where he kills the other 3...its rare, but those songs are fucking incredible...listen to "skeletons in the closet" best joe budden verse ever AND one of slaughterhouses bests songs period

      owned by game behave yourself listen to game over, he lyrically destroyed ransom and has consistently put out good music

    Blessing in disguise that em has a limited involvement, I fucks with Slaughterhouse but I thought Em had too much impact on the last album

    They need all the help they can get. Four career under achievers combine to under achieve. Who would of thought..

    I aint liked one song yet from these niggas. Its like nobody in that camp or on the label got an ear for beats. They just jump on anything.

      When it comes to beats and production that shit is an opinionated. I swear people always try to make it seem like beats are the reason why an album is wack. Same beats people call wack are the same beats I like and vice versa. The beats had nothing to do with it tho, the album was wack because it wasn't cohesive and they sounded like an upgraded D-12.

      Wack MCs beat was hot, Microphone beat was hot, Not Tonight beat was hot, Sound Off beat was hot, Frat house beat was hot, Flip a bird beat was hot, etc...

    people keep talking about Slaughterhouse as if "Welcome To Our House" is all they've put out.... forgetting (or not knowing) that their first project had a lot of great material and not to mention the songs that came out here and there leading up to that. So, I really don't understand how you are writing them off because they are 1-1. And do not discredit the fan base like many of you have. These guys are all WELL IN TOUCH with what the fans feelings were toward the last project and understand where they are. So to think they are just going to do some bullshit is very disrespectful to 4 artists who have done enough by themselves to earn a chance at a fair shot as a group.

      Everyone also seems to forget the mixtape, which was released while they were under Shady and is superior to their independent release.

    • Anonymous

      I completely agree with you. Their first album was great, but most people forget that because Welcome To Our House didn't live up to all it's hype. They're obviously in touch with their fan base, and they know we didn't particularly like the last album. I have high expectations for this album, especially with Slaughterhouse's extremely high skill level.

  • RMAC

    .....1st album was quietly my sh*t......2nd album missed the marked(MIXTAPE>>>>>>>>ALBUM).....so now Im iffy on this one.....BUT......JUST BLAZE EXEC PRODUCER got to mean at least half the album is his production.....so this should be the album that I was expectin the last time round.......and just cuz......based on 2013......ORTIZ>>>BUDDEN>>>>>CROOK>>>>>ROYCE....

    This is gonna be slaughter house's last album on shady records. It will bomb along with yellwolf's album and then shady records will be closed while ymcmb/mmg lives on.

      "but doing shows with an album is always a win win situation." So what happens if they have no album?

    • Anonymous

      If you are doing shows(especially off mixtapes) then you are making money. Fucking dummies. They might not get rich but doing shows with an album is always a win win situation.

    • Anonymous

      That doesn't mean they're making money off of mixtapes, especially since mixtapes are given away for free.

    • Anonymous

      Their hosts are paying the artists depending on how many times the mixtape is downloaded.

      Mixtapes don't make money and they're not doing big shows, so that "they don't need to release an album" shit doesn't cut it.

      They make money off of mixtapes and tours. They don't need to release albums.

      And that's the problem with Young Money/MMG. They have too many artists, most of them will never see their shit released and if it does, it'll go wood. At least the current Shady Records artists see their shit released.

      Shady Records only has eminem, 50 cent (on his way out if he even gets an album out), slaughterhouse, and yelawolf. MMG has about 20 artists and YMCMB has 70 artists.

      None of this will happen, especially that last part.

    AS much as I hate to say it, Em hurt the last album more than he helped it... I just hope these dudes have songs with concepts, but not necessarily shameless attempts at radio records. Wu tang perfected that.

  • Kramer

    Thats not what I want to hear. I was hoping he would have a couple verses

    Remember when you bitches were saying Slaughterhouse was better than Wu-Tang Clan and then they dropped stinker after stinker. If only music projects were BET freestyles

    • Anonymous

      Yeah it was a minuscule portion called the Slaughterhouse fanbase. Quit making excuses for these guys y'all are really gonna blame Eminem for why these guys are trash?..I thought yall loved Eminem! All their albums were terrible and its not like these guys are dropping solo classics either. Every member of Wu you mentioned may not be as "technical" but they have classic lines, songs, albums, features,beats, hits. You can't compare the two That's why Budden got smacked and stomped out at Rock The Bells for even testing.

      Lyrically now, Slaughterhouse would destroy Wu-Tang. Them niggas ain't make a hit since 36 chambers. Tho I won't shit on Wu-tang Forever that shit was a solid album but nothing great. Slaughthouse first CD was better then that tho. As nice as Ghostface(solid catalogue), Methodman and a few others are from Wu-tang, the only real lyricist they got is Raekwon, Cappadonna, and the so underrated but so talented Genius the GZA. The rest of them niggas is mediocore on the mic. None of them is fucking with Slaughterhouse lyrically.(except Rae and GZA) Slaughterhouse just needs to found any other producer not named Eminem. Eminem fuck their whole album up trying to make them sound like D-12. They were spitting bars but their concepts and some songs were out of wack. Seems like everyone was battling to have the best verse on every song instead of trying to put together a cohesive project.

    • Anonymous

      People may have just meant better as in more technically skilled, not as in artists. Which I'd say is an agreeable statement.

    • WTF

      I'm not sure what your talking about I don't remember anybody saying slaughter house was better than Wu-tang. And if someone supposedly did I assure it was a very very minuscule portion of the hip hop community, Most likely new listeners. So we are not bitches I think you should go get your facts straight before accusing anyone.

  • Its Um

    I can't believe you guys hated on Slaughterhouse last cd like there wasn't any good songs, I will admit there was 3 songs that was skip-able but other that all the songs was good and they went hard on all the others. I think that 3rd single didn't help push the album well, and they needed that eminem feature song to be one of their single.

    • Anonymous

      Shoulda thrown Em on "My Life" and scrapped Throw That, Throw it Away, and Park It Sideways. Then released Get Up as the 3rd single and it woulda sold a lot more.
