Grammy-winning rapper Eminem may have a lesser voice than expected on Slaughterhouse’s third group effort as reports claim he will likely lose an executive producer role on its release.
According to reports, group member Joe Budden revealed how much time Slim Shady managed to squeeze onto the LP.
Joe Budden explained that em, who was an executive producer for the group’s last album Welcome to: Our House and the group’s mentor in many ways, had less involvement than usual because he was working on his own album. “Well, this time around he was also working on his album while we were working on our album,” Budden said in an interview with Hip Hop Since 1987. “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.” Instead, Just Blaze will act as executive produce of Glass House. The album is slated for release in spring or summer. (Complex)
In a Twitter remark posted last month, Joey revealed his group project’s LP is called Glass House.
“& not to take credit at all, but I feel like the new Slaughterhouse album (Glass house) has a real Budden-esque undertone.,” Budden tweeted January 13. (Joe Budden’s Twitter)
Coincidentally, Slaughterhouse announced a “Glasshouse” tour last month.
Slaughterhouse will be embarking on their “Glasshouse” tour next March. They revealed it on their new website. The tour kicks off at SXSW with five consecutive shows. From there Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, and Royce da 5’9? will be travelling across the country with stops in Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, and New York. (Complex)
Last year, Budden said he believed a spring 2014 release was possible for its next LP.
“This is by far our best project,” Budden said in an interview referring to the next Slaughterhouse album. “[Release date?] Whenever [Eminem’s] done. [laughs] Whenever Em is done, go sell your 50 million records, then we’ll roll right on the tail end of that. Hopefully this spring. I don’t want to go into the summer with it. So hopefully this spring. [Has Em rapped on it yet?] On our album? Not as of right now. As of right now, I don’t think we have not one feature. Oh, yes we do, yes we do. We got Action Bronson. We got Action Bronson. I’ll leave it there for now and I don’t even know if that record is certain because we have like, 40 records, so, we’re trying to slim it down to 12.” (Hot 97)
