Welcome To: Our House by Slaughterhouse on Apple Music

16 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Unquestionably the most popular all-star supergroup in hip-hop today, Slaughterhouse return with their heavily anticipated second full-length, following up their classic 2008 debut, a 2009 EP, and this summer's mixtape On The House. Now signed to Shady Records, the majority of tracks here are produced by Eminem, who has mastered the art of crafting tracks that perfectly balance radio-ready catchiness with off-kilter funkiness, working alongside other well established beat maestros like No I.D., Boi-1da, and Mr. Porter. As solid as the music is, it's the lyricism that really shines here, as the whole crew (Joel Ortiz, Royce Da 5'9'', Crooked I, and Joe Budden) deliver a whirlwind of highly quotable verses that address everything from what it means to be a real emcee (''Our House'') to rocking your girl (''Frat House'') to being clinically insane (''Asylum''). Guest features come courtesy of Em, Swizz Beatz, B.O.B., Cee Lo, and Busta Rhymes, while other highlights include ''Flip A Bird,'' ''Walk Of Shame,'' and ''Hammer Dance.''

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
