Last night I had the chance to check out the upcoming Slaughter House album. They played 6 joints off their album, everyone filled with lyrically dope. While I'm very familiar with 3/4's of the group I wasn't too familiar with Crooked I, but boy was I sleeping on the kid. He's got lines for days. 'Here's how the story of your life will begin/ Once upon a time... The End' & 'If your chick burps the smell of my nuts will fill the air.' I told him he has gained a fan.
After the session was over I hung around the studio for a little longer, kicked it with some real hip hop heads like Eskay from Nah Right, Dallas Penn, Carl Chery from XXL, Andreas Hale from BET, and more. I sat down with Royce the 5'9 and spoke to him about a few things. Check out that interview where he touches on the Charles Hamilton/J. Dilla situation.
BlogXilla: Are you excited about this Slaughthouse album?
Royce The 5'9: I'm super excited about. I'm excited about how real everything came out with the short amount of time we had to do it. I'm excited about the response we've been getting. We just didn't over think it we just went in there and just did what we do best and that's what happened.
What's your favorite line on the Slaughterhouse album?
It's probably a Crooked Line. I don't know man, I still have to really go through everything, but I know for a fact in my personal opinion Crooked got the best verses. That's what he do, line for line he's a problem. I'm definitely glad we are on the same team. I love everybody and all of our verses, everybody stepped their game up.
What do you think of the Jay-Z DOA joint?
I think it's cool, I think the title is edgy the actual record is not that edgy. Hov is Hov, that nigga is going to come with it every time I dont give a fuck what nobody got to say about him the nigga is going to come with it. I think he did that, I think he came with it especially with that 3rd verse he tore niggas up with that verse.
What do you think about Charles Hamilton making J Dilla the Executive Producer?
I like Charles, I like Charles a lot. I think he's definately is still at that age where he just says things, and that's where he needs to grow out of just saying stuff. I don't think a lot of people understand Detriot is a whole other world and we don't like you talking about our people and the people that are enforcing these things are niggas that will kill you. So you know I got that situation under control. I know who to call to make sure that nothing serious will happen to him, but he's definately playing with fire. Know what I'm saying. Dilla and Proof niggas are very really sensitive about those two deaths.
You really really... I looked at it like it was a compliment but i just know how my nigga look at it and just how my niggas would look at it which is how they responded to him. He was going back and forth before I even knew about it, Mecca just brought it my attention today. I lost my phone yesterday and once i get my phone back I'm going to call the right people and make sure they know peace everything. I don't think Charles meant any malice by it but he just has to understand the way people will take it, because its not always about your intentions. Your intentions you might no
