Slaughterhouse Signs Deal With E1 (Koch)
Slaughterhouse, the lyrical super group comprised of Joe Budden, Crooked I, Royce Da 59 and Joel Ortiz has found a recording home with E1. E1 is the label formerly known as Koch Records and houses a number of independent rap entities. Were working on it. Its a one-off [a one album deal], Joe Budden told AllHipHop.com. Its coming very soon. No official release date has been announced, but insiders suggest it could be as early as July. Budden previously revealed that hes working on a solo album, The Great Escape, slated to hit stores later this year. Hip-Hop aficionados have been fawning over Slaughterhouse for the groups capacity to offer a mixture of traditional lyrics and contemporary styling. Budden said that they were open to doing tracks with other artists such as Chino XL. There have been a lot of people telling me that if you all dont do a song with Chino XL, yall are buggin, Budden said, admitting that adding new members offers a new dynamic. I dont know about adding a fifth member. We kind of got a camaraderie and a chemistry going where, if Slaughterhouse is somewhere, Slaughterhouse is somewhere and its the four of us. Chino XL, Im not mad at that. Hes top notch. The Slaughterhouse album has not definite release date and the title hasn't been revealed either.Aside from his work, Budden will get surgery on his thumb Tuesday. The rapper explained the entire ordeal on his joebuddentv.com, seen below.
