Quote:Slaughterhouse On Major-Label Debut: 'We're Done'
'We take you on a ride through this album,' Joell Ortiz tells MTV News of Welcome to: Our House.

Slaughterhouse are putting the finishing touches on their humble abode. Welcome to: Our House, Slaughterhouse's major-label debut on Shady Records, is scheduled for a June 12 release, and Eminem is just putting the finishing touches on the much-anticipated LP.

"The album is done. In terms of vocal recording, we're done. Marshall is still in the process of mixing, we still got a couple of records that we're missing," Royce da 5'9" told MTV News on May 9 from the set of their "My Life" video. "We're on pace for June, worst-case scenario, we're looking at July, but it's definitely coming, 100 percent.

This isn't SH's first album, but ever since it was announced that Royce, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Crooked I signed to Eminem's Shady Records at the top of 2011, rap fans have been wondering what type of sound the major-label marriage would yield.

"Fire," Joe Budden said, describing the sound of the new album in a single word.

His partner-in-rhyme Ortiz was a little more descriptive. "It's a really personal album, but there are records like 'My Life' which are celebratory," he said.

Each member of Slaughterhouse is a master lyricist in his own right, and when they converge for group efforts, the expectations are that much higher. "There are records were those core Slaughterhouse fans will get their 'Ohs and ahs' like 'OK, the pen is pushing,' " Ortiz said, promising a barrage of witty lyrics. "It's themed, but we take you on a ride through this album. Y'all gonna enjoy it."

The group is so excited about the album that they are taking great care in making sure it isn't leaked onto the Internet prematurely. In fact, Welcome to: Our House is so closely guarded, none of Slaughterhouse members even have a copy. "We don't have the music, it stays in the studio. It's safe there," Ortiz told us. "But every time we go to record or just get up and meet in Detroit with Em and everybody at Shady, I personally ask them to hear records."

I honestly have no idea why interviewers ask the artists how good the album is going to be, it's not like they're going to hate on their own album, that would be puttin the Promomobile in reverse.

I am not sure anyone on the forum asked or discussed that before, but I am wondering if each of the members will have at least a solo joint on this... I think that would be great and would open the doors to get a bigger fanbase for their future solo efforts (or debut for Crooked I haha).

Yeah, seriously.  It's hilarious too how every solo artist always claims their next project is, "their best work yet." too.  Game comes to mind as someone who always says this.

I'd also like the idea of a solo showcase for each dude... which be a nice touch for the album... though I'm pretty certain it won't be that way.  I'm hoping there's just more than 12 fucking songs at this point.

Now they are competing against the expectations of the fans.
