Slaughterhouse members Joe Budden and Joell Ortiz recently discussed their multiple Welcome to: Our House Shady Records debut setbacks and promised the LP is dropping next month.
Having fought through multiple delays, Budden said he is thankful the fans have stood by their side.
“It’s finally here. We dealt with a couple of pushbacks, we dealt with being creative the whole way through, putting new music out there. Now, we’re here,” Joe Budden told MTV News on Sunday evening on the BET Awards red carpet in Los Angeles. “August 28, we’re going to make it do what it do. Hopefully, the fans are just as excited about the release as we are, and we can’t wait.” (MTV)
Mr. Yaowa made sure to give Shady Records head Eminem a shout-out, especially for contributing to the album’s production.
Now, a few months later on the BET red carpet, and Ortiz is even more excited. “We really got busy this time around, man. The first album, we had six days to do it, this time around we’re with a major label, Shady Records,” he said. “Shout to Eminem: He mixed the entire record. This album is going to be incredible.” (MTV)
Over the weekend, Slim Shady playfully talked about putting their LP together.
“I’m actually finishing up one of the last songs for it, right now,” Em said in an interview with DJ Whoo Kid. “Today, as we speak. Yo, turn the snare up a little bit. Bring that kick down. [I’m mixing now during this interview?] Yeah. That’s why I’m not paying attention. It’s just me, man. Yeah. I rap their verses for them and then I present it to them like, ‘Yo, here’s how you guys should say this and here’s what you should say.’ It’s pretty much how we do it. [Who’s the most annoying?] Royce [Da 5’9] by far. [Physical confrontations?] Nah, we don’t have to go that far. We just know we have a mutual dislike for each other. And then we just leave it at that. The bad feeling’s mutual. We don’t like each other so we don’t get upset with what each other says or anything like that because we just don’t care.” (Shade 45)
