Editors’ Notes

Slaughterhouse is a rap supergroup comprised of four of hip-hop’s most respected but perennially overlooked MCs. At different points over the past ten years, Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Royce da 5’9” have been poised to break through, but mass recognition has evaded them every time. They wisely decided to join forces, and the group’s eponymous debut upholds a branch of East Coast rhyme science that has been almost entirely obscured by the dominance of the Dirty South. While groups like Wu-Tang have stayed relevant by adhering to a signature sonic scheme, Slaughterhouse is strictly about the lyrics and the attitude. Like a basketball team that chooses to stick with the time-honored tactics of good plays and fundamentals, the album is both an exhibit of awesome skill and a manifesto from a group of men with serious chips on their shoulders. The key track is the roiling “Salute,” which features verses that act as resumes — or memorials — delivered over an instrumental of weeping funk.

Customer Reviews

Hip-Hop in it's purest form!!!

Upon hearing about this group being formed, I immediately had high expectations for this group. I am both proud and amazed to say that Slaughterhouse exceeded those expectations. They can possibly go down as one of the greatest groups that ever blessed microphones!!! Sound Off: 4/5 - Serves as the intro of the album and they all come in hard - Joell Ortiz Lyrical Murderers: 4.5/5 - Producer Focus provides the smooth production and each member provides smooth yet fiery lyrics - Crooked I Microphone: 5/5 - The 1st gem of the album. Each artist proves why they were destined to rock a microphone - Royce Da 5'9" Not Tonight: 4/5 - Nice track to ride to. Good rhymes and catchy hook - Joell Ortiz The One: 4.5/5 - The 1st single. DJ Khalil provides a rediculous rock influenced beat as each member delivers solid rhymes - Crooked I Cukoo: 5/5 - The 2nd gem of the album. Each verse gets better than the 1st one - Joe Budden Onslaught 2: 5/5 - The 3rd gem of the album. Has the feel of a cypher rather than a song, which is refreshing - 4 way draw Salute: 4/5 - Excellent production by Mr. Porter and nice feature by Pharoahe Monch - Joe Budden Pray: 4.5/5 - Budden lays the hook as Royce, Crooked & Joell rip their verses - Joell Ortiz Cut You Loose: 4/5 - Good laid back track - Crooked I Raindrops: 5/5 - The 4th gem of the album. A really personal track that allows you to hear them at their most vulnerable moments - Royce Da 5'9" Killaz: 4/5 - Another cypher type song. Simple hook with fierce lyrics - Royce Da 5'9" Fight Klub: 4.5/5 - Bonus track that shows why these 4 rappers are not only great solo artists, but now also great group members as they all bounce off of each other perfectly - 4 way draw Total tally: 58/65 = B+/A- From beginning to end, these 4 lyrical beasts prove that true Hip-Hop is far from dead. The 1 thing that stood out to me the most about this album is that while each rapper comes with strong individual verses, they blend together to sound like an actual group rather than 4 individuals trying to outshine each other for the wrong reasons, which is not only a hard feat to accomplish in Hip-Hop, but in music period.

SLAUGHTERHOUSSEEEEEE

GREATEST RAP GROUP ALIVE. hands down. the lyrics are all on point. if you want a hip hop album. here it is. and if anyone gives this album lower than a 5 or 4 than you dont know hip hop. or you lust follow the crowd and listen to gay a*s lil wyane. or souljah boy. soulja boy can eat a dick

They sound hungry when at this point of their Careers they don't have to

I never expected this album to come out and i must say tht is a huge accomplishment. Joell kills every track. Actually everyone kills the tracks on this album. This album could be the greatest album of the year but the production sometimes sounds cheap. I expected something grimey. I got half of what I wanted. The best group out now. Forget Young Money and G Unit. It's about the Slaughterhouse.

When Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, and Royce da 5'9" joined Joe Budden on his 2008 mixtape Halfway House, the chemistry on their collaborative track meant "Slaughterhouse" the song would quickly become Slaughterhouse the hip-hop supergroup. Other tracks recorded at their initial meeting bypassed the usual music distribution channels and were leaked to the net, including "Move On," which gave the music press the group's backstory in song.
