We’ve been hearing noise of Royce Da 5’9″, Joe Budden, Crooked I and Joell Ortiz being in the studio, and today Shady Records makes it a fact. Releasing a new statement that the new age four horsemen are officially in the lab cooking up their next offering. And as an added bonus, Just Blaze has been called on to Executive Produce.
The Core Four are spending the month of June in a secret location in New York City cooking up something new with a team of producers including the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Araab Muzik and Just Blaze. Just Blaze is set to serve as the album’s Executive Producer.
Each member also offered their own thoughts; which I’ve included below.
Joe Budden: I’m really excited about doing things a different way this time around
Joell Ortiz: The creative being creative! Fun, fun fun!
Royce Da 5’9”: Everyone is in the perfect space, mentally. It feels great to be back in the studio with the guys and I think that I can speak for everyone when I say that we just wanna make an album that will stand the test of time and mean sum’n to Hip-Hop.
Crooked I: God of the Westcoast, I birthed these n!3@@& now I’m about to burry ‘em. Bloody Axe PigFace Slaughterhouse Mafia!
