Slaughterhouse stopped by The Breakfast Club Show to discuss their signing with Shady Records. It was all gravy until host Charlamagne Tha God issued some choice words concerning fellow Shady signee, Yelawolf. “Please no records with Yelawolf” urged Charlamagne. “I think he’s terrible…he’s like the white dude you met in prison, so to keep people of him, he starts rapping.” Making some low blows, the self-proclaimed God added, “he looks like he hasn’t showered in weeks…he looks like one of those miners that came out of a mine in Chile.” He then tried to justify his position by claiming Bubba Sparxxx is a much better rapper, which prompted Joe Budden to say, “Bubba Sparxxx was nice for an hour…Yelawolf would tear Bubba Sparxx apart.”
Earlier in the conversation, Charlamagne was being real reckless by basically saying Dr. Dre wouldn’t give Joell Ortiz (previously signed to Aftermath) or Crooked I the time of day if they had not signed to Shady. “Dre kind of ignored the new artists from the west, and you’ve been out there for a while making noise, but now he’s only dealing with you because of this situation” Charlamagne told Crooked, who said he previously had a relationship with Dre although it was sort of on the rocks because he signed to Death Row. He then proceeded to talk trash about Kendrick Lamar.
In related news Royce Da 5’9″ said told the host, “[Eminem] wants to be very involved” in the creative process of Slaughterhouse’s next album. Let’s hope that doesn’t translate into uber-poppy hooks and commercial beats. “Living Proof” is probably the best Eminem track I’ve heard in years, so hopefully we get more that and less of the screaming Em.
