Saigon recently discussed his admiration and respect for Joe Budden's Slaughterhouse rap group despite his past issues with the New Jersey rapper.
Although Saigon was engaged in a brief rap battle against Joey, he still maintains a level of respect for the entire group, which consists of Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5'9 and Crooked I.
"Shout-out to Slaughterhouse," Saigon said in an interview. "People going around saying I've been talking dirty about Slaughterhouse, nah, I got much love and respect for everybody in that, aside from Joe Budden, everybody else, even Joe Budden, I ain't really got no issues with that man. Like I said, when we see each other or whatever, we gonna deal with it like men. I'm not saying I'ma do something to him, I'm saying, we need to sit down and polly." (Vlad TV)
Rap veteran Benzino recently downplayed Slaughterhouse's buzz.
"I think them n*ggas is mad overrated, real talk," Zino said in an interview. "Yeah, them n*ggas is mad overrated yo, for real. I don't know what all the hype about them is. And I knew Tahiry was gonna leave Joe Buddens, you blog too much homie. You blog too much, stop blogging man and watch out [for] where your girl's at, man. You blog too much homie. Them n*ggas is overrated. I'm not f*cking with Slaughterhouse, f*ck them n*ggas. F*ck Royce Da 5'9, [it began] with some sh*t about we trying to interview Slaughterhouse and they don't want to give us an interview because of Kim 'Fat B*tch' O'Sorry H*e is wife to the manager of Royce Da 5'9 and they don't want to give us an interview so like f*ck them n*ggas man. Crooked I though, that's my n*gga. I can't front on Crooked I. I don't even have no beef, I just think them n*ggas is overrated. I don't even know who Joell Ortiz is, I'm not up on Joell Ortiz -- it's not that I don't like [Budden], I just think the n*ggas is overrated. I don't see where all the hype at, not just them n*ggas because I get a lot of hate out there but my thing is, I know I got some banging sh*t -- I bet you the Made Men could tear their a**holes out. Why not?" (57th Ave)
Former D-Block member J-Hood recently dissed Slaughterhouse and held their age against them.
"N*ggas thought I wasn't gon' say nothing, like I wasn't gonna address it," Hood said in an interview. "F*ggot a** H*e Buddens, Joyce Da 5'9 and motherf*cking, what's that n*gga's name? Slanted I, Crooked I, whatever the f*ck your name is my n*gga. Y'all n*ggas are a** my n*gga. Y'all n*ggas are rolling with a n*gga that got a n*gga locked up, got the homie Ransom locked up after he went to your homie's house and smacked the sh*t outta him, he ain't smack the sh*t outta him, his man smacked the sh*t outta him. Next couple days after that the n*gga was locked up. I don't want no beef with y'all n*ggas, you getting n*ggas locked up. Plus y'all n*ggas is 30 plus my n*gga. Old head a** n*ggas. 'Pump Pump Pump It Up,' f*ck outta here...You and your mans talking that Slaughterhouse bullsh*t, get outta here with that. You trying to come at Method Man and Wu-Tang, they paved the way for you. How the f*ck you gonna try to disrespect a legend?" (Major Moves DVD)
Slaughterhouse is reportedly in talks to join Eminem's Shady Records label.
"It's very much what it looks like," Royce said in an interview. "That's always a possibility. It's conversations being had, very good conversations. I just did an interview recently and they asked me to a address the rumors. I said, 'Rumors are what they are, people see things and they jump to a conclusion.' I never said it wasn't going to happen -- I left it right there in the middle. I think it would be a great thing if it could happen...I've been talking to Em and [his manager] Paul [Rosenberg] for a long time...With this particular situation, things are falling into place. Everything is in place where it's supposed to be. I'm very prepared [for] when the opportunity presented itself. It's a time where there's things they need over here and certain things we need in order to move over there. I think it's a good marriage. Like I said, I just hope it can happen." (MTV)
