Slaughterhouse Speaks On Shady Records Debut
The fearsome foursome gives an update on the project, which they hope to have in stores by the end of the year.
While in Detroit, Michigan for a cameo in Royce Da 5’9” and Eminem’s upcoming video for "Fast Lane," super group Slaughterhouse has revealed new information regarding their Shady Records debut. The collective, consisting of Royce, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden and Crooked I, explained that they were happy to have time to record their upcoming LP, which they hope to have in stores by Christmas.
“We just getting started. We’re not going to rush it. We was behind the 8-ball with the last album. We had to get it done in six days,” Royce told MTV News’ Sway. “So just having an opportunity where time is not an issue, budget’s not an issue, we just gonna go in there and knock it out.”
In comparison to their eponymous 2009 debut, they haven’t varied their approach. “I wouldn’t say the concept has changed so much. Same things that we all have in common, the same things that the group was comprised from are still intact,” added Budden. “Still a very lyrical group, very capable group, very hungry, passionate - just animals. And we have one of the best animals now supporting us.”
The group, recording for the album while in the D, is slated to have Eminem’s stamp of approval. “I run everything by him, just ‘cause I trust his ear. And he has OCD, so he’ll nitpick my song apart,” said Nickel Nine. “So even with my solo stuff, anything I do, I try to run it by him. So he is like an A&R, I guess.”
