Eminem Says Slaughterhouse Album Is Finished
While promoting Slaughterhouse’s upcoming album, Eminem called Channel 955 radio in Detroit.
Em addressed Slaughterhouse’s project and his contributions, his next album and his friendship with 50 Cent.
“I actually started my album, but I haven’t fully went in yet because I’ve been finishing up this Slaughterhouse record,” he revealed. “I kinda been really hands-on with this album for the past year. This has kinda been a pet project for me. I kinda been executive producing, producing, co-producing, mixing—very hands-on with it and just really involved. We’re actually finishing up today. We’re handing the album in today. … Oh my album? I don’t have a date yet.”
He also spoke about the artists signed to his label Shady Records. “Me and Royce had been friends for a long time. As far as the Slaughterhouse project, that was one of the things. I’ve always respected Royce as an artist as well, so when we started this group and got these guys together it was kinda like one of those things where… I’m very into the technical aspect of lyrics. And Yelawolf to me is a very technical artist—Royce, Joell, all the guys from Slaughterhouse are very into the technical aspect too. It’s fun for me to be able to hear the different pockets that these guys get in with flows. I’m really into that.”
As for his friendship with 50, he says that they have a mutual respect. “Ever since we started making music with Fif, it was always like a mutual respect thing and we became friends outside of the music. 50 is very big on the business aspects of his career. I would consider him a smart businessman. Not saying that I’m not, but I don’t get into as much of the technical aspect in the business sense. I have no idea what’s going on—ever. I don’t even know where I’m at right now.”
