In a recent interview with Shade 45's DJ Whoo Kid, Detroit rapper, Eminem confirmed that rap super group Slaughterhouse would be dropping their "Welcome To Our House" album on August 28.
This is not Slaughterhouse's first album as a group, but it is their debut album on Eminem's Shady Records label.
"The album's coming out August 28. I'm actually finishing up one of the songs for it today, as we speak," Em revealed.
"I rap their verses for them," the Shady Records CEO joked. "I present it for them like 'Yo, here's how you guys should say this. Heres what you should say,' and that's pretty much how you do it."
DJ Whoo Kid asked who from Slaughterhouse annoyed him the most, and Em joked "Royce (Da 5"9)."
Eminem also spoke about the passing of the Beastie Boys' Adam "MCA" Yauch.
"It's really sad. It's really a shame. The Beastie Boys mean so much, have always meant so much since they came out, and mean so much to Hip-Hop, all 3 of those guys. It's really...I don't know man. It's really sad," Em said according to HipHopDX.
"When License To Ill came out, that sh** changed rap," he added.
"Those guys and LL made me want to rap. When I saw the Beastie Boys' "Fight For Your Right To Party (video), it made me realize that it was possible. Just seeing that and being like 'whoa holy sh**!' They were killin it!"
The rapper also sent out his condolences to MCA's friends and family, as well as the Beastie Boys themselves.
Eminem also talked about working on his 8th solo album, Soul Culture reports.
DJ Whoo Kid speculated that Dr Dre would be involved in the project. Eminem said Dre would definitely be involved, but he's not far enough along into the process to know exactly what Dre will be doing just yet.
Eminem will be touring Asia next month. He will be in Osaka on August 17, Tokyo August 18, and Seoul August 19. It will be Em's first time in Seoul.
He also appears in Ice-T's Art Of Rap documentary.
