Royce Da 5'9" was a recent guest on the My Expert Opinion podcast and talked about Slaughterhouse.
The topic of Joe Budden trashing Eminem's music came up at the 9:16 mark and how that affected his relationship with Shady Records.
"There wasn’t always an issue between Joe and Shady," said Royce. "The issue with Joe and Shady now is just the way he voiced his opinion about Marshall’s album. Marshall didn’t like that. It wasn’t because he had an opinion about Marshall’s album, it was the way he publicly voiced it. I actually had a problem with that too. But me and Joe spoke about it."
Royce talked about the problems Joe had with Slaughterhouse on the business end too.
"Ownership is a big thing to Joe right now," the Detroit rapper explained. "He’s evolving. Just in terms of understanding the importance of equity. He looks at the brand as something we built, which we did, you know."
The chances of a Slaughterhouse reunion was also discussed.
"If we are not gonna do the album then I don’t even want to have conversations unless I know that everybody’s down to rap," said Royce. "I don’t want to force anybody to rap, man. Joe’s having a good time doing what he’s doing, Crook is super successful. Joell Ortiz just got married. I mean, I’m just happy where everybody is, where we are as men. I’m happy about that."
Do you think Joe will ever rap again, or is he done forever since he's a podcaster now?
