A fan reaction: We need the closure of Slaughterhouse – The aftermath of the IG Live video

After watching the Instagram Live Video hosting Joe Budden and Royce da 5’9” first for the most part. Later dropping by for a short minute Joell Ortiz. While KXNG Crooked or Crooked I wasn’t present at it. However, what was said and the sentiments between the MCs are now crystal clear. Because, it was going nowhere and fast…

What is clear is that Joe Budden isn’t all that. He has a ego, which is higher than Mount Everest. While Royce is shielding himself and not holding himself accountable. His trying to ditch all responsibility or participation of whatever he did. That is how things are looking like to me.

It seems like Crooked worked out agreements and possible deals for Slaughterhouse, which Budden and Royce didn’t want or had interests in. They had already mentally called out or ERROR 404 it all. Since, whatever Crooked worked or fixed behind the scenes wasn’t good enough. While they are all claiming the IP and the ownership of it.

That’s why Budden was crying out about the logo and burned merchandize in the “Vacancy” video. While the “Backstage” video is also ruffling with some feathers. This is really poignant and evident, that the “Rise and Fall of Slaughterhouse” is not what Budden or Royce had in mind. They are not in that space and seems like they preferred it all to be dead. Alas, Crooked and Joell is just dropping a passion project. That is evident by how Joell and Crooked talks about it. While the pains and hurt is obvious too.

As a fan, I have stated, we need the closure. Some might find that corny after waiting for years and close to 9 years of nothing. The “Glass House” album is the epitome of broken dreams and shattered promises at this point. Heck, any project with the 4 MCs seems impossible. Firstly, because of Joe Budden himself. The almighty man and biggest ego of all of them. That is very evident. While Royce don’t leave much on the table either. That’s how it seems to me from the outside. He just playing the field and hoping for the best deal without having to put any work in. That’s how it looks like to me. The sort of brother that takes lots of credit when the project is out, but didn’t much or be concerned with the finer details before his cut was in reach.

While Crooked worked the business and offerings directly. Joell has been busy and steadily dropping project. Royce have had the two major boosts with “Book of Ryan” and “The Allegory” but the “Phryme” era seems long gone. While Joe has been Joe with his “empire” and Podcasting gig of late. Rory and Mal must clearly seem some resemblance in how Joe is handling this here. Because, this is the same toxic and controlling Joe we have seen before. Where Joe is always right and needs to fit on his accord… that is clear. Joe is right to want that, but if it is a joint-effort. Than everyone has to be served and not only Joe. While Joe is only concerned about Joe. That’s why he acts almighty and superior to the likes of Joell. That is obvious and it’s infuriating.

Joe haven’t even dropped anything with heartfelt emotion in a minute and “Mood Muzik” is ages ago. Nobody fears Joe’s rap or assault on a beat. If it was Lloyd Banks.. than I would be fearing something. But Joe Budden in 2022? He don’t even call the shots or ops. His just busy cussing out Parks on his couch.

As a fan of Slaughterhouse. A man listening to their music. This is just a tragic demise of a promising and possible powerhouse in the genre of Hip Hop. Instead, the men went their separate ways and cannot reconcile their differences. The egos are too much and their personal grievances is evident too.

While I enjoy Royce, the way he acted on IG was no good. Neither was Joe. They ganged up on Joell. While only trying to go after him and Crooked. Crooked wasn’t even there. The album which drops soon will be interesting. I am looking forward to the closure and the foreclosure of Slaughterhouse. Since, the mortgage and the owners has abounded it. Therefore, we shouldn’t expect more from them after this.

That is very obvious. The album from Crooked and Joell is putting the nail in the coffin. I doubt Royce or Joe will ever amount to anything. Except for them having their own projects and being all on their own. I don’t see a return and the bridges are burnt now. Which for some reason is actually good. Because, we don’t need false promises… I don’t need that… Peace.
