Grammy-winning rapper Eminem recently provided an update on the forthcoming Slaughterhouse album, Welcome to: Our House, and what has taken the quartet’s long-awaited Shady Records debut from hitting store shelves.
After joking about holding up the LP’s process, Slim Shady playfully named the most annoying Slaughterhouse member from throughout album-making duration.
“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)

The next offering from welcome to: Our House is the Mr. Porter produced “Throw It Away” featuring Swizz Beatz. The track will debut on mix-shows nationwide this weekend and will be available Monday, July 2nd exclusively at iTunes. (Sac Bee)
Recent reports had the long-awaited project dropping in June.
Slaughterhouse are putting the finishing touches on their humble abode. Welcome to: Our House, Slaughterhouse’s major-label debut on Shady Records, is scheduled for a June 12 release, and Eminem is just putting the finishing touches on the much-anticipated LP. “The album is done. In terms of vocal recording, we’re done. Marshall is still in the process of mixing, we still got a couple of records that we’re missing,” Royce da 5’9″ told MTV News on May 9 from the set of their “My Life” video. “We’re on pace for June, worst-case scenario, we’re looking at July, but it’s definitely coming, 100 percent.
