Fans of Slaughterhouse have been clamoring for a reunion since KXNG Crooked announced his departure last year. But Joe Budden, one of the group’s core members, has consistently maintained that will never happen.
During the October 12 episode of Budden’s YouTube series Pull Up, he and Freddie Gibbs were chopping it up about career longevity. The ever-outspoken host not only reiterated a reunion wasn’t in the cards, he also revealed he’d once suggested his fellow Slaughterhouse members Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5’9 and Crooked replace him.
“That’s why I ain’t doing it,” Budden said. “I can’t speak for why they’re not doing it. When I suggested that they find probably another rapper to take my place and still put out music, they didn’t think that was the greatest idea, and that was years ago. That might’ve changed.”
