Today, Hip Hop Wired caught up with Slaughterhouse member, Royce da 5’9. The Detroit rapper spoke on a number of topics. Among the topics were Eminem and him being named the “king of hip hop” by Rolling Stone.
This summer, Royce and Eminem released their collaobrative album Bad Meets Evil. While he considers Eminem his closest friend in the industry, Royce did not agree with Rolling Stone. Royce said no one should ever be named the king of anything in hip hop.
Royce da 5’9 said no one should be named king because different fans have different opinions. While many would credit Eminem as king, others would give credit to Jay-Z, Nas, or another rapper. Royce was also asked about Slaughterhouse’s membership. The crew has members from all over the United States, except for the South.
When asked who he would add to Slaughterhouse from the South, Royce da 5’9 said it would have to be Bun B, because he is already an unofficial member of the group.
