Crooked I speaks on the work that Eminem has already put in on Slaughterhouse’s new album, Welcome to: Our House, which is slated for a May 15th release.

In a recent interview with XXL, Crooked I says Eminem has production and features on the new LP, calls Em the 5th member of the super-group:

“Em is putting in incredible effort with this album. He’s arranging, he’s being featured on songs, he’s producing. He’s putting in just as much, if not more work, than everyone else as far as Slaughterhouse. If he’s not featured on it he produced it, if he didn’t produce it he arranged it, if he didn’t arrange it…when it’s all said and done, his presence is going to be felt throughout.”

Crook added:

“He’s the fifth member of Slaughterhouse at this point.”

As the interview continued, the Slaughterhouse member says Eminem is putting just as much work in on the LP as they are:

“He’s putting in just as much work in as we are and I salute that all the way because he doesn’t have to obviously. Sometimes when you get with a major, dog, the people who sign you, you take a picture with him, shake his hand, they publish it in a magazine and you never see the muthafucka again. I feel like we’re bringing some of that raw MC energy that a real MC feeds off of in the first place. It’s just a beautiful situation. I thank God for this situation.”
