Slaughterhouse - EP by Slaughterhouse on Apple Music

6 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

The hip-hop equivalent of "the sum is greater than its parts," Slaughterhouse is comprised of four talented MCs who spent many years paying dues and dealing with an avalanche of bad deals, bad luck, and bad timing. Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5'9”, Crooked I, and Joe Budden could each write a book about how the industry has done them wrong, but instead of crying over missed opportunities and wack situations, they instead joined forces to become one of the biggest and most universally jocked supergroups the rap game has ever seen. Their self-titled debut album was one of the best moments of 2009, and this EP is just a little something to tide the fans over until the official follow-up, to be released on Eminem's Shady Records. All six tracks here are great, loaded with boisterous beats, razor-sharp flows, and quotable rhymes aplenty ("I'm on BET more than Leprechaun 3"). Don't miss "Back On the Scene" with Dres from Black Sheep, and the furious posse cut "Put Some Money On It (Remix)" featuring Styles P, Jadakiss, and Sheek Louch.

About Slaughterhouse

When Crooked I (aka KXNG Crooked), 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. They recorded their debut album in a mere six days, signed to the E1 label, and released their self-titled debut in 2009. Due to sample clearance issues, the final product did not include the promised single "Woodstock," but in keeping with the group's alternative marketing plan, it was released via Budden's Twitter account. In 2012, they took on the industry from the inside, releasing the Welcome to Our House album on major-label Shady/Interscope with Cee-Lo Green, Eminem, and Skylar Grey among their guests. ~ David Jeffries
