Royce Da 5'9 Says New Slaughterhouse Album “Will Happen”
It appears that Royce Da 5’9 is the voice reason in Slaughterhouse.
Nickel Nine appeared on the Grass Routes Podcast and provided an update on the group’s Glass House album in light chatter about it never coming out. While its release is far from imminent, he revealed that it’s simply a matter when — not if — it will happen.
“It’s a work in progress, that’s all,” Royce said around the 36-minute mark the interview. “Everybody just passionate about it. Any time you see comments being made, it’s never that we don’t get along with each other. Let me just get that straight and break that shit down so it can forever be broke. Everybody gets along with each other. Everybody’s great. Sometimes, you may have one member that wants to do it sooner than another member, and that causes a little bit an issue. You know what I’m saying? But that’s just passion. Passion for the creativity. That’s a great thing. It’s a work in progress and it will happen. It’s just about when.”
Royce’s sentiment contradicts the statements fellow members Joe Budden and KXNG Crooked, who both sparked the fires doubt about the LP. Earlier this year, Budden referred to the album as “the new Detox” on his I’ll Name This Podcast Later show and said it’s never coming out.
“For all you people who keep wanting a music update, here it is. That Slaughterhouse project, you’re not getting it,” Budden said. “Sorry … It’s some shit on there. Unfortunately, the best Joell Ortiz] verse that I have ever heard in my entire life is on this album that y’all are never gonna hear. That’s fucked up.”
In a July post on Instagram, Crooked seemed to confirm Budden’s words by stating that he was done fighting to get the album released.
“I hope one day you get Glasshouse because you deserve it,” he wrote. “A lot creatives came together on that project and captured a moment in time that I would luv to share with the world. I fought the good fight to bring you those gems but like they say you can’t win them all. So moving forward I’m directing my energy to giving you the absolute best music I can possibly give you. I’m not turning my mic f no time soon. Thanks for the continued support I genuinely appreciate it.”
Budden, Crooked and Ortiz also exchanged tense words on Twitter in recent weeks, although many the posts have since been deleted. Budden would later joke about leaking the LP on an episode his show Everyday Struggle.

In 2014, Dilinjah spoke to Uproxx about Chappelle’s impression and what happened after it aired.
“You take a joke and everyone’s cracking on you,” he said. “But the next question is, ‘What is he up to? What kind music does he have? Can we book him?’”
Though Dilinjah and many Da Band members have faded into relative obscurity, the Grenadian rapper continues to release music and reportedly landed a deal with Akon’s Kon Live label. In the meantime, he’s set to release his album Pain 2 Power on September 15.
