I still dig most of what they have made since the move, but if you don't think Shady records is influencing their production/music direction you're in denial.
With that said I have high hopes for both the mixtape and the album. I love Hammer Dance, but the other two tracks I've heard (My Life and Throw It away) are pretty weak.
That's what THEY SLAUGHTERHOUSE want. Listen to what they say and how they act. It's clear they want to go mainstream and sell records. If they didn't care about selling records and making money they would of never signed to Shady.
Em himself said he just chose the songs. They made em. They made those tracks regardless of what Shady said. They made it, he picked it. If they didn't make those garbage tracks he wouldn't be able to pick em now would he?
