Eminem The “Perfect Boss” For Slaughterhouse
“He’s a great person, and I think that’s one of the things that makes me most excited about the project,” Joe Budden remarked. “Being with him, you just totally forget that he’s one of the dopest rappers and he’s so successful. He’s a great person, and he’s still a humungous fan of the culture and very much in tune with what’s happening.”
Joell echoed a similar sentiment: “He really is a fan too, though. He’s a fan of Slaughterhouse. When he comes in and listens to songs, it’s not to critique them; it’s to listen.”
Like Em, SH are celebrated for their complex lyricism. It is that lyrical dexterity where the quartet’s bond with their CEO lies. “Me, personally, I really like getting his input. If I got five, 10 minutes to holla at him on something that I want to holla about, I’m just gonna seek input,” Crooked I said. “It’s a lot of artists out there that are signed to super-mega-stars and they can’t even have that conversation.”
There isn’t a set date for Slaughterhouse’s upcoming album, but during his “RapFix Live” appearance in August, Royce hoped to have a first single out by December.
No matter the release, as of now, Slaughterhouse believe Shady is the perfect label for them. “I just feel like he’s the perfect boss for this group, and we couldn’t have a better home,” Ortiz said.
