It’s been about seven years since Slaughterhouse last released their second studio album, Welcome To: Our House, and fans still have their hopes the group will reunite. However, with the different group members focusing on their own solo careers, it could be difficult for a reunion to happen. It’s even said that Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5’9”, and Kxng Crooked have a third album, but according to Budden, it may never be released.
Over the years many people wondered why Slaughterhouse broke up, only for Joe to take blame for it in an episode of the Joe Budden Podcast. Budden talked about the group in a recent interview with Freddie Gibbs on the Pull Up, saying that groups are a thing of the past.
The two talked about how the only real rap group left is the Migos. “That’s the only group!” Gibbs told Budden, sayings that they’re able to exist because they’re “making enough money to not have any issues.” “Eventually, groups start fighting about money,” Joe said.
“I can’t speak for why they’re not doing it. When I suggested that they find probably another rapper to take my place and still put out music, they didn’t think that was the greatest idea, and that was years ago. That might’ve changed. But my fight, with that even, without the extra Eminem bullsh*t is just ownership. I cannot devote this much of my time to a project, eat a fourth from the project, and then it have to go up the chain of command? I gotta make sure all these n*ggas are making sure our project do what it gotta do and then we gettin’ the scraps from the bottom? That was my fight. We an independent outfit.”
