On Wednesday (May 23), Marshall Mathers aka Eminem took the time to call in to New York’s Hot 97 to announce that Slaughterhouse would be performing at this year’s Summer Jam 2012.
Hot 97 Host/DJ Peter Rosenberg, who is also host of the new television show, MTV2′s “Hip-Hop Squares”, took the call hyping the announcement with special effects bombs.
“Yeah, well, I actually talked to the guys [Slaughterhouse], and they wanna do it so, I mean, I guess we’ll just make it official? Slaughterhouse performing Summer Jam, June 3,” Eminem said.
With the announcement came instant praise for Slaughterhouse, a super-group that Eminem has been developing for several years, and he mixed their second album entitled, Welcome To: Our House.
When asked what advice he would give to Slaughterhouse before their performance, Eminem said he hopes for the group to just be themselves.
“I really feel like this group, Hip-Hop needs this, man, and I think people are going to see that when this album comes out man,” Eminem told Rosenberg.
While Eminem has been busy mixing the upcoming project as executive producer, he also confirmed that he has been busy on an album of his own.
“Well, right now, I’m actually finishing up everything up on the Slaughterhouse album and kind of getting into my next record a little bit, so that’ basically the couple of things that I’ve been working on,” Eminem reported.
Slaughterhouse’s album, Welcome To: Our House, releases on June 12 under Shady Records and Interscope Records.
