The Slaughterhouse machine weigh in on MTV’s Hottest MCs list.
“I can’t front — the young boy Drake is spitting,” Joell Ortiz said. “I’m interested in seeing where he goes with his career. Just aside from singing, the dude can rap. I wanna see what he does too. Bun B too. Shout-out to Bun B.”
Joe Budden was less forthcoming when talking about who he thought was superior on the mic.
“These n—as that’s dope, they don’t need the sh– to be confirmed,” he said. “They don’t need my confirmation. They know they’re dope. Stay in your lane. … I ain’t shouting nobody out. It’s dope n—as out there. We’re dope. It’s other dope n—as out there. I ain’t shouting n—as out though.”
“Jay and Em is still at the top, and that’s it. Everybody else is trying to reach out. I love Blu. Blu, and I still love [Kool] G Rap. It’s a million n—as to name. Jay right now, at his age, is still better than n—as. But when you write that hottest list, you’re not gonna put Jay and Em at 1 and 2. You’re not. Don’t lie to me and say you are. Don’t insult my intelligence. In 2009, you’re not gonna put Jay and Em 1 and 2 on your list. You can bet me money.
“I like T.I., Fabolous, I just like dudes who can spit,” Joe added. “I didn’t look for too much else.”
Obviously this is outside of Joey’s vlogs (shown after the jump) about Raekwon and the fuckery that is boring me more and more as each day passes. Whatever the case may be though… the Slaughterhouse album is in stores (and on iTunes) today. As well as Joey’s Escape Route. I’ll be picking up my copy before I catch them at the House of Blues tonight.
And hell, while were at it… Inspectah Deck’s carriers dropped a new diss. *yawn…
This record was recorded right after Joe said his two cents about Inspectah Deck. As you know Fes Taylor is Inspectah Deck’s man and protege. Fes Taylor has been affiliated with the Wu since the 90’s. Anyway the story goes, that it was put on hold because it might have made the situation even more tense at the time. In other words, this was going to be in the hidden vaults forever. However, after Joe Budden’s latest BlogTV show, the song is being released. Please keep in mind, Wu-Tang is family at the end of the way. Somebody will make it their business to state how they feel. That is just how family works. As Deck said, you involve one of us, you involve all. Note: This is in no way affiliated with Raekwon or his camp.
