Eminem Eminem was really shocked that Slaughterhouse didn't blow up?

    This video encapsulates Eminem f--king up Slaughterhouse. Forgot just how bad this song is, and how much worse the video is. It's a disaster that so many talented rappers made so many horrible choices.

    I was a big fan of Welcome to: Our House. If this album including this song came out in 2008 instead of 2012 it would have been #1

    I'm sitting here, watching this video for the first time, seeing a bunch of broke nobody ass niggas dancing in a photo studio, rapping about their amazing life, but I don't any of them actually showing this great life. You couldn't get them on an actual beach? In an actual car? In an actual amazing life for the video? Eminem couldn't shoot it in his backyard at least? It's sad because goddamn, I like this song. Where was I when this dropped? Is that Budden in non-hole-ridden clothes? Is that stock footage of shit they're rapping about? Jesus christ? Omg. Eminem literally phoned it in. Nigga shot his scenes using f--king snapchat filters or some shit, green screens and sent them in. Garbage.

    My life should have just been Royce. I could have watched his part in the video over and over. The rest of them ugly niggas could go.

    Budden got a sexy voice, but Royce murdered him. I don't know what he said in the song yet because I wasn't listening, but Royce > Budden. Slaughterhouse should be Royce. Is Royce here? Does Royce know he's cute? Jesus.

    Slaughterhouse was promoted wrong. They were lyrical monsters that had no business on the radio. Eminem tried to promote radio AirPlay and that’s what failed. They aren’t hit makers and never would or will be.

    The same type of fail happened with yelas first album on shady.

    Joe, Royce, and Crooked were way better artists before they created Slaughterhouse.

    But if we're being honest, Slaughterhouse did propel them to another level, because before they formed, Joe, Royce and Crooked were struggling for relevance.

    They were amazing artists though before it. I actually think they all got corny when they formed.

    Most Slaughterhouse fans didn’t want them to sign to Shady. I know that I didn’t. I always thought the signing was great for the label itself since it showed that they were willing to sign “lyrical rappers” but it was a bad move for the group because Shady doesn’t have a great track record unless you’re Em, 50 or early 2000s D12 and Obie. I’m not surprised that it failed and honestly I’m not even surprised that Joe had issues with Em. Joe is known for beefing with everybody. He started a beef with Method Man because Vibe magazine put him in a Greatest MC’s bracket going up against Meth. Also you’d think Joell would have learned his lesson after the Aftermath deal went to shit. Those branches of Interscope don’t have great track records.

    I was optimistic when 2.0 started. I figured Em's problems had a huge impact on the label and a relaunch could be a chance to turn things around. I thought more rappers around would be a good influence on Em. Yela and Slaughterhouse were interesting choices and I hoped they'd help bring some edge to Eminem's music after Recovery. I quickly realized my mistake. Even while I was cautious about the potential release date problems from interscope, I never would have guessed both label debuts would sound like they did. Everyone on Slaughterhouse has problems with record labels in the past so I assumed they got a good deal with Shady.

    If u can't make songs, write and perform hooks, are too lyrically complex and technical, don't have versatility in doing anything besides rapping e.g singing or harmonizing and just rap, lack charisma, don't have an ear for beats that bang and sound appealing, can't make love songs or female songs like some player/pimp songs that a chick can still rock with and listen to, can't make cross over radio singles, can't sound engaging and interesting when attempting to rap with introspect, lack any form of female fan base and audience

    It was always going to end how it did and u are always destined to flop and never be able to sell records which is just always inevitable for Slaughterhouse due to their style, making niche type of rap, having all the major weakness i stated

    Slaughterhouse music simply lacks flavour, soul, spice, vibe, musicality, entertainment value, feel good factor

    He's lying through his teeth in that interview

    He never did shit for them nor expected shit from them. They were simply a pet project of his

    Nothing won't with the song, in fact it does what it was meant to do; introduce Slaughterhouse to the mainstream.
    Also, nothing won't with the video AFTER the Eminme shit. The bit was awful.
