Slaughterhouse‘s Joe Budden has hyped up fans’ anticipation of his four-man crew joining forces with Slim Shady Records by revealing a recent studio session they had with Eminem.
Although he did not reveal their track’s title, Joe spoke on the experience in the booth.
“I feel like it’s not fair, because [Em] can do so many different things with his voice,” said Budden via JoeBuddenOffTV. “Everybody did they verse already. Em did his verse first, Royce heard it first, did his second, then Crook did his, and then Em rewrote his…Joell‘s is done — but I think he might be rewriting his…It wouldn’t be as difficult to do a song with Jay-Z, because he’s just an incredible rapper. Eminem, he can give you 20 different voices, he can to 20 million different things in a verse. It’s not really about incredible rapping with him. I think I’m an incredible rapper; I put my rapping up against anybody else’s rapping. But it’s more than rapping with Eminem.” (Joe Budden Off TV)
Last month, Budden told fans when they could anticipate a Slaughterhouse Shady Records debut album.
“We are just about [signed to Shady Records]. It’s so premature. It’s four artists and a deal like that is just extremely complicated when you have four individual entities but the great thing about it is Em is just so passionate about hip-hop,” Budden told DJ Envy. “Everything that this group was formed around, he is in 200 percent support of so shout-out to him as well. Late 2011 [our Shady Records debut will drop], I’ll go on the record and say that.” (Power 105.1)
In August, a manager for Slaughterhouse’s Joell Ortiz denied his client was holding up the group’s label move.
“There’s a lot of rumors going around about how we’re jammed up, or we’re jamming up the Slaughterhouse deal,” Mike Heron said in an interview. “I think [this story] helps clear that up, as well. Joell is 100% free to sign with Slaughterhouse at Shady. We are 100% free to do whatever we want as far as Slaughterhouse is concerned.” (XXL Mag)
Recently, Slaughterhouse member Crooked I updated fans on the status of their move to Shady.
“I’mma tell you like this,” said Crooked when asked whether the deal had been officially completed. “I don’t know about the rest of the group, but I’m on Shady!” he said, before breaking out laughing. “I’m just playin’. This is a note to any up-and-comingartist who’s out there…any aspiring rapper or producer: when you sign a contract with a label, make sure that you have certain freedoms. Try to negotiate…We got four dudes, we got separate contracts with different labels, and some labels kinda blocking. They kinda blocking. But we’re getting over those obstacles now, and we’re negotiating…It’s worse than LeBron [James] going to The Heat. It’s crazy how long it’s taking, but it’s going to happen. Absolutely it’s gonna happen, and absolutely we will be in the studio with Eminem, recording probably the greatest music of our lifetime.” (Hip Hop DX)
