The Slaughterhouse rappers keep sharing their hurt feelings as the saga around them continues.

As they are getting ready to release their new album “Rise and Fall of Slaughterhouse”, Joell Ortiz and KXNG Crooked offer their perspective and thoughts about the glory and power that the band used to have. Two pre-released tracks off the album were enough to make two other Slaughterhouse members voice their disagreement.

Recently, Joe Budden and Royce da 5’9″ went live on Instagram again and laid out their old and new grievances. Royce said that he is offended by the idea that he took Joe’s side, as has been implied, and that he put his interest over the group’s benefit. This is how he interpreted Joell’s and Crook’s viewpoint on the situation and refuses to agree with:

Do you know how insulting that is? To accuse me of taking somebody’s side against somebody else’s? I didn’t even take Eminem’s side against Slaughterhouse, and that’s my beloved, my loved one. If I was looking at it from an economic standpoint, Slaughterhouse wouldn’t stand for neato. It would have been like, “Bad Meets Evil! Sorry, guys, I’m out”. But I gotta be able to look myself in the mirror. I stood with the group when it was the right thing to do.

— Royce da 5’9″

Did Royce inadvertently imply that Eminem was working against Slaughterhouse? The official version has always maintained that deep disagreements Joe Budden had with Eminem and Shady Records led him to leave the group, but Shady Records was ready to continue working with other MCs, regardless of Joe Budden’s departure. Joe repeated this in his previous passionate Instagram live on the topic. So what is this – just a poor choice of words, or is there more to it?
