If you saw Total Slaughter's first event in July you know that Sway Calloway and DJ Kay Slay were the hosts. However, he wasn't the first choice. Jack Thriller was hand picked by the show's organizers for the event, but ultimately it didn't happen.
Jack sat down with Battle Rap to explain why the deal fell apart.
“I was supposed to host the Slaughterhouse situation, right? They called me one night and they were like, ‘Yo, Eminem is about to do the battle rap show, man, and he wants you to be one of the hosts on the show.’ [They] told me I had a job,” Jack Thriller explains. “Ain’t nothing good ever happened to me that goddamn big! I got excited. So I immediately, after I got off the phone with them, I went and found a picture of me and Eminem and I posted it up on Instagram at about four in the morning. Guy couldn’t sleep, this was the greatest thing that had ever happened to me. This had to be January 18, 2014. Nothing good ever happens to me, not like this. Did I deserve it? Yes I did!”
“I posted it up and it went viral,” he continues. “I didn’t even promote it, all I did was post a picture on Instagram. Shady Records hit me up at 11:00 a.m., ‘What the f*ck is wrong with you? Are you f*ckin’ out of your mind? What the f*ck is wrong with you? You didn’t even sign a contract yet. Slaughterhouse is going crazy, people think it’s your show and Eminem’s show, this has nothing to do with you. You know what? Can you go back online and say that you was just playing? But it’s a possibility that we might not be able to use you for the show.’ So you want me to go tell a lie, and then tell people I was just bullsh*tting about a job I might not get? Sh*t me! F*ck that. I left that sh*t up there and as you can see I still didn’t get the job. They had Sway [Calloway] and [DJ] Kay Slay do it and they did a great job and sh*t. Would it have been better if it was me? Yes. Yes. Would it have been a better event if it was me? Yes.”
Do you think Total Slaughter would have been more entertaining with Jack as the host? Should he be front and center at their next event?
