Joe Budden on the Future of Slaughterhouse: ‘It’s Dead’
Budden wanted to address Royce da 5’9”'s interview with Power 105.1's "The Breakfast Club" where he discussed the future of Slaughterhouse. The Detroit rapper said that Budden, who created the idea behind the group, is a media guy now and doesn’t want to rap anymore.
On his podcast, Budden made it clear, “Slaughterhouse is dead.” He then went on to explain that he and his fellow members Royce, Kxng Crooked and Joell Ortiz have creative differences, which hinders them from working together.
"There's no bad blood," he continues.
The news follows Kxng Crooked's announcement last month that he's longer with the rap collective and insisted that there's no beef between him and the other members.
"Ain't no beef, it's all love," he said. “I wish them dudes nothing but success, and I mean that."
"I’ve been sober for two years,” he continued. “Let me tell you a secret, sober Crooked likes to rap. Group ain’t rappin’ no more. And that’s fine. It was fun while it lasted."
Budden concluded his discussion by saying that the group and the fans need closure and he wanted to give it to them. The rapper-turned-media personality told his listeners that he is the reason why Slaughterhouse is no more.
"I want everybody (fans) out there who is concern about the future of Slaughterhouse to place all blame on the shoulders of Joseph Budden. I am the blame," he said.
