Joe Budden "Takes The Blame" For Slaughterhouse Demise: "I Ruined Everything"

Joe Budden "Takes The Blame" For Slaughterhouse Demise: "I Ruined Everything"

We all know by now that a full Slaughterhouse reunion is out of the question, mainly because of Joe Budden. The Shady Records Hip Hop group didn't even reach their peak before behind-the-scenes moves caused division. Over the years, there have been pump fakes regarding a potential reunion, and although several of the other members-Kxng Crooked, Joell Ortiz, and Royce Da 5'9"-have collaborated, Budden remains on the outside looking in. The podcast host has spoken about Slaughterhouse's past and non-existent future, but he was questioned once again while on Drink Champs.

Budden's appearance on Noreaga and DJ EFN's platform arrives this week. In a teaser, Nore asks Budden about the Rap group. "Gimme the blame. I'll take the blame. Hey! I ruined everything. Everything that you loved, I ruined that sh*t." Noreaga chimed in to joke, "I believe you." Budden added, "I'll take the blame. It's just ten years long of just stories and talkin'-ay! I did it. It was me." EFN wanted to clarify that Budden was speaking about Slaughterhouse specifically. "You're owning up to that one?" asked EFN. Budden replied, "Yes. It was me." That wasn't enough for Nore.

Joe Budden Is "Grateful"

"Rumor has it, E1 gave y'all a tremendous deal, and Shady Records gave y'all a 'tretendous' deal." Budden responded, "I don't know what was tremendous and what wasn't. I think E1 gave us an opportunity, I think Shady gave us an opportunity. Grateful for both." The clip ends there, but fans anticipate how the complete discussion about Slaughterhouse will unfold. These conversations have lasted, as Budden noted, for the better part of a decade. Prior to Ortiz and Crook releasing their joint project, The Rise and Fall of Slaughterhouse, Kxng talked about Budden causing them to lose out on a lucrative deal.

"Joe was signed to another label and caught up in some paperwork," Crook told Bootleg Kev last year. "They called over to Shady like, 'Hey we have him under contract. You have to get a clearance from us to have him appear on the song,'" he added, explaining that everyone was under the impression they were free agents before signing with Shady. "Come to find out, Joe was on the paperwork. He said that they forged his signature and that it wasn't him. And the group was put on the shelf for a minute while he was fighting Amalgam Digital in court, and we were waiting on Joe because we couldn't move forward."

It was just one of several setbacks for the group. More recently, Budden and his former groupmates went at it over Ortiz and Crook's album. He wasn't a fan and made it clear during a heated Livestream exchange. Check out the teaser of Joe Budden on Drink Champs above.
