Is there friction among Team Shady?

(AllHipHop News) Joe Budden may not feel like Eminem was taking shots at him on "Chloraseptic (Remix)," but Em's Bad Meets Evil partner Royce da 5'9" may have confirmed there is some tension in the Shady Records camp. While on the Rap Radar podcast, Royce spoke about Budden criticizing Eminem's recent music.

"I think he's entitled to his opinion just like anybody else, but it goes back to the dignity thing, the loyalty," Royce expressed. "I can say I don't like every single Eminem song that ever came out and I'm entitled to that opinion, but there's such a thing as going past the realm of what your opinion is and making it so that it sounds like you're trying to sway people's judgment."

The Detroit spitter added, "Joe, being an artist, I thought if anybody, he would understand how important it is that you walk eggshells around each other's art. That's just how we do."

Budden took to Twitter to let his 1 million followers know he would be addressing the issue on the next episode of his own podcast. He promised to provide "perspective" on his fellow Slaughterhouse member's comments.

Royce Da 5'9" is currently on a media tour in support of PRhyme 2, his upcoming collaborative effort with producer DJ Premier. The LP contains features from Roc Marciano, Yelawolf, Rapsody, Big K.R.I.T., 2 Chainz, and CeeLo Green.

How can they talk about loyalty? Saying you dont like someones Album has nothing to do with Loyalty. But on the otherhand what has to do with loyalty is to go to someones Concert to perform with an Artist who has beef with one of your Artists like Em Did when Joe was beefin with Drake
