Slaughterhouse’s ‘Welcome to: Our House’ Release & ‘RapFix Live’
With their Shady Records debut Welcome to: Our House dropping tomorrow, Tuesday, August 28, Slaughterhouse will be hitting up the “RapFix Live” couch with the show’s host, Sway Calloway.
Eminem was very hands-on in the album-creation process, and the four extremely talented lyricists admit that his input helped them improve their already fine-tuned skills. In contrast to their 2009 self-titled album, which was crafted in just a week, this project required patience and diligence.
“I think all of us have been around long enough and are humble enough to know the appropriate time to be a sponge, and this entire process, all of us have done nothing but that, as well as sponging off each other,” Joe Budden told MTV News of Em’s influence on Welcome to: Our House. “So for me, it’s been a learning process throughout the entire time, and I can say the same thing for these brothers because I hear it in their music as well. We’re just blessed.”
As a team, Slaughterhouse can potentially go down as the greatest group of MCs ever assembled. “I just want to say I feel like these guys right here are some of the best rappers I’ve ever heard rapping, ever,” Crooked I told MTV News of Budden, Royce and Joell. “I’m a student of hip-hop — since Rakim, LL Cool J, KRS-One, I’ve been a student, and to hear these guys rap, to me, these are some of the best rappers I’ve ever heard in my life.”
