[Interview] Slaughterhouse Talks ‘Forever’ Cameo w/ Vibe September 24, 2009

Posted by TheTim in Interview.


When people who looked closely enough saw the members of Slaughterhouse standing behind a hoodied Eminem in the music video for Drake’s “Forever,” also featuring Kanye West and Lil Wayne, rumors of an impending deal with Shady Records immediately spread.

Group member Royce Da 5’9 addressed the possible signing with VIBE. “There’s gonna be rumors when somebody see something like that but it just is what it is. We just all family,” says Royce. “As everybody knows, Em is a good friend of mine. We’ve been good friends for years. I just had my Slaughterhouse brothers in town and [Eminem’s manager] Paul [Rosenberg] asked me to come down and be in the video and they just happened to be in town with me so I just brought ’em with me.”….

…”The song itself is kinda like an All-star lineup,” Crooked I told VIBE. “It kinda symbolizes each person is playing their position just how LeBron does on the court and his team, so it’s kinda cool. I like the song. Em ripped it. I think he hit the home run, but I liked everybody’s verses.”

“It was like they set the alley-oop for him and he just dunked it,” adds Royce. “Normally when you got that many MCs on a song, the song can get boring after a while but all of ’em kept up the pace and Em came with a totally different flow and just kinda stole it.”…

As for a remix or freestyle over “Forever?” “That would be a good idea,” says Crooked. “The song’s about six minutes so that’s what we do. We be making some real long songs… That’s right up Slaughterhouse alley.”

Clever PR cover-up by Royce & Crook? Hopefully!
