Billboard Interviews Yelawolf & Slaughterhouse

Billboard recently sat down with Shady’s latest signees for an update on their new label’s debuts. Down below, ailment Yelawolf speaks on Eminem’s involvement on Radioactive.

“I saw Em at the party for his [Lipton] Brisk Super Bowl commercial,” Yelawolf says. “I was sitting with him and was like, ‘Hey man, I did an album.’ ‘You did an album? I want to hear it.’ The next day we got up in the studio and he was hyped, man. But of course we’re going to get back in the studio and he’s gonna produce some stuff, touch some stuff up.”Yelawolf says he won’t “spill the beans” about what kind of touch-ups will be done to the album, but he describes the set, recording in Las Vegas, as “more organic than ‘Trunk Muzik.’ It’s still raw in a way and still keeping the core there, but it’s less regional and more worldwide sounding. It just feels bigger.”

As far as Slaughterhouse goes:

And Eminem, according to Royce, is “very involved” in the Slaughterhouse project. “He’s very excited,” Royce notes, “and I’m always excited when I see his level of excitement, because he doesn’t get excited about a lot. I love seeing him happy, and this project definitely makes him happy.” But, he adds, Slaughterhouse doesn’t plan to rush the album, either.
