The latest Shady Records signees spoke to Billboard today about the progress of their forthcoming albums. Yelawolf “refuses to spill the beans,” but notes that he’s working with a variety of producers ranging from Jim Jonsin to Diplo. He describes the project, known as Radioactive, as being “more organic” than his street album, Trunk Muzik 0-60. ”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” explains Yelawolf. He is said to be working with Eminem on putting the final touches on Radioactive.
Slaughterhouse claims to be about six songs into their sophomore album. Royce Da 5’9″ describes the songs as being “real personal, talking about something in particular, things we’ve been through — something a lot of critics [think we] can’t do, so we’re excited to show ‘em we can.” Royce went on to describe Em as being “very involved” in the project, but said they aren’t rushing anything.
