Since teaming up with Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9, and Joell Ortiz, Crooked I’s career has reached new heights. Upon forming, the foursome immediately became Slaughterhouse. Immediately, the crew caught the attention of Eminem. In the past, Eminem had issues with Joe Buden and Royce Da 5’9 and Crooked I was affiliated with rival company, Murder Inc. Joell Ortiz previously worked with Dr. Dre and left the Aftermath label.
Given the demand for Slaughterhouse/Shady, everyone was able to overlook their past differences in order to deliver good music. With Eminem returning from his hiatus, Slaughterhouse released their self-titled debut with eOne Music (formerly E1 Music and Koch Records). Before the end of 2010, the group signed with Shady Records and began working on their debut album. For nearly two years, the album has been met with several delays.
Crooked I recently spoke on the popular group. Recently, their album, welcome to: OUR House was delayed. DJ Skee caught up with the Los Angeles rapper and spoke on the future of Slaughterhouse and a myraid of other topics.
