Joe Budden – Slaughtermouse
It was only last month we were hearing rumours that Joe Budden was about to go in on Royce and Em with a diss on his upcoming album. Royce even took to twitter to confront the fellow slaughterhouse member saying ‘I heard you dissed me and em on your album… you sure you want that problem?. Well either there was never such a track or Budden has thrown it in the trash because his latest track titled Slaughtermouse is an open letter giving nothing but praise to his Shady Records boss Eminem. Throughout the track Budden spits some emotional bars comparing his life to Em’s and asking the Rap God for some advice. He also gives praise to Royce and expresses how much joy it gave him to see him and Em get back together with Bad Meets Evil saying ‘When Bad Met Evil, nigga who was happier than me?/ You woulda thought it was my album and I was on that shit’.
Slaughtermouse will feature on Budden’s upcoming album All Love Lost which is scheduled for an October 16 release. The track is produced by none other than araabMUZIK who provides a chilled and somewhat spiritual beat which fits perfectly with Budden’s deep lyrics. If you’re loving this track than make sure you head over to iTunes and pre-order the album as you will receive Slaughtermouse as an instant download.
So it seems like it’s nothing but love in the Shady Records fam! Check out Slaughtermouse below and cop All Love Lost on October 16. I wonder if Em will pen a letter back….
In preparation for the release of SHADY XV Eminem, Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf have turned the heat up by dropping some of the craziest bars I think anyone has ever heard. Crooked I kicks things off with a rapid flow, spitting straight fire which completely dominates the next 2 minutes. Joe Budden’s up next with a much slower flow however; he definitely doesn’t disappoint with a solid performance spitting real shit. Now Yelawolf has never been a favourite of mine and I don’t think his verse does much to change that. I just can’t get into him, his voice, what he says I’m just not feeling it and I will never understand what Em sees in him but hey that’s just my opinion. Joell Ortiz throws in a polished performance however; it’s not long enough for him to shine and have a proper effect. Royce shows that he’s a class above most with his packed metaphors and killer flow proving that he is one of the best out there at the moment. Finally we are left with six and a half minutes of pure epicness from the one and only Eminem aka Slim Shady aka Marshall fucking Mathers. Every line that Em spits is unbelievable, his flow in next level (especially the last 30 seconds holy fucking shit!) and his wordplay is just unheard of. Eminem truly is a rap God and this 6 and a half minutes proves that he is the greatest rapper alive! truly amazing!
