After the Forever video aired, the rumors of Slaughterhouse going to Shady Records started to pick up speed. VIBE caught up with 1/2 of the machine to speak on them as well as their cameo in the video and their thoughts on the song.
There’s gonna be rumors when somebody see something like that but it just is what it is. We just all family. As everybody knows, Em is a good friend of mine. We’ve been good friends for years. I just had my Slaughterhouse brothers in town and [Eminem’s manager] Paul [Rosenberg] asked me to come down and be in the video and they just happened to be in town with me so I just brought ’em with me. – Royce
The song itself is kinda like an All-star lineup. It kinda symbolizes each person is playing their position just how LeBron does on the court and his team, so it’s kinda cool. I like the song. Em ripped it. I think he hit the home run, but I liked everybody’s verses. – Crooked I
It was like they set the alley-oop for him and he just dunked it. Normally when you got that many MCs on a song, the song can get boring after a while but all of ’em kept up the pace and Em came with a totally different flow and just kinda stole it. – Royce
Then of course the question of whether or not Slaughterhouse would rock a freestyle over Forever came up. In which Crook responds…
That would be a good idea. The song’s about six minutes so that’s what we do. We be making some real long songs… That’s right up Slaughterhouse alley.
Crooked I’s Pig Face Weapon Waist EP is now looking at an October release; which may fall before or after Royce’s album, Street Hop (October 20th).
