Producer Alchemist recently talked about the forthcoming Slaughterhouse Shady Records debut album and revealed his contribution to the group's long-awaited sophomore LP.
While keeping details discreet, Al said expect superior records on the album.
"It's pretty crazy, man. They have some amazing records. Yeah, the album's stupid," Al said in an interview. "I'm making my little contributions where I can. The ball goes out of bounds, I keep it in, throw a little dirt on the ball. Nothing too fancy, Alchemist, keeping it tradition. Slaughterhouse album, four incredible emcees, Shady Records. Put it together, man, what do you think you're going to get? Ka-boom. " (Montreality)
Last month, Slaughterhouse's Crooked I talked about aiming for a Dr. Dre contribution to their upcoming LP.
"I know the scheduling and timing and all that blahda ladda, but man, Slaughterhouse need to be in there with [Dr.] Dre," Crooked said in an interview. "If they was to ask me what my wish list was, or who I wanna get on this f*ckin' album, it's gonna be Dr.Dre -- I ain't go through h*ll and a hand-basket to get to where I'm at to not f*ck with the good doctor. [Laughs] Sh*t. I'm in the f*ckin' building; I'm in Interscope. Dre, where you at, baby? We need them godd*mn tracks. [Laughs]" (Hip Hop DX)
In May, Slaughterhouse's Royce Da 5'9 gave a small update on the long-awaited quartet record.
"Yeah, we're working on it slowly but surely, slowly and surely," he said of the Slaughterhouse. "They're coming here [to Detroit] for seven days starting on the 12th of May. We did the last album in six days, so sky's the limit on how much we gonna get recorded while they're here." Royce also revealed that he and the crew already have a number of tracks recorded. "We're about seven or eight songs in. Just cutting randoms, just to see where we are at." (MTV)
In March, Royce hinted at Eminem's possible involvement on the group project.
"I think he'll be the executive producer [of our Shady Records debut]. He's very good at taking a record to a whole different level after we do what we do with it. He's good at choosing beats, maybe a verse here, a hook there -- anywhere he can help, he's willing to do it. And he doesn't want us to do a lot of e-mailing (of tracks). We've had a lot of problems with hacks and leaks. So he wants us to be in one central location for the recording." (Detroit Free Press)
An album release date has not yet been announced.
