New Jersey rapper Joe Budden recently updated diehard Slaughterhouse fans on the status of his crew’s forthcoming Glass House album and what will make it stand out from their two previous efforts.
In Joey’s perspective, Glass House executive producer Just Blaze upped the ante and helped take their brand to uncharted territories.
“We’re about 75, 80 percent to where we want to be,” Budden said in an interview. “I think when the album comes out, a lot of people will be shocked of the caliber of music on this particular body of work. I feel like not only us as artists go somewhere we haven’t explored as a collective in quite some time but the synergy in the music – Just Blaze executive produced the album and he created a slaughterhouse of producers. So the synergy that him and J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and Cardiak and illMind and araab [muzik] had together, I think everybody in there just locked down for two months and inspired each other and the music reflects that.” (VIBE)
Recently, Blaze said his aim was to see the four member team eliminate any need to compete against one other.
“I’m producing the Slaughterhouse album right now,” the veteran producer said. “And my thing with that album is that I didn’t want it to be an album full of them trying to out-rap each other. I wanted them to actually be together during a majority of the process of the album as a group and just make things a little bit more rounded.” (XXL Mag)
Recently, Budden revealed how much time Shady Records boss Eminem 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)
