Slaughterhouse announces new battle rap reality show; Also spill news on producers for new album.
It looks like the Slaughterhouse crew will have their hands full in 2014. With a tour scheduled, an album due out, the Slaughterhouse crew just added a reality show to that list.
While chopping it up with Sway on MTV's Rapfix Live, Joe, Royce, Joell, and Crooked I announced that they'll be releasing a new battle series called Total Slaughter. The show will be a reality series featuring eight battle rappers going head-to-head in a bracket style format each week. Slaughterhouse will serve as producers and judges on the show. The eight rappers partaking in the reality show are Dizaster, Math Hoffa, Daylyt, Arsonal, Cortez, Marv Won, Big T and Aye Verb.
“It’s giving these guys a platform that they didn’t have before,” says Royce Da 5’9″. “Everybody knows they’re great if you follow them, so the goal is to put not only them, but battle rap itself, on this platform. The winner of each side will co-headline the main event, [with] two legends in the battle game. It’s probably the biggest battle you can put on right now, on behalf of Shady Records, Shady TV and Slaughterhouse.
Joe Budden added, “It’s a reality series as well, ‘The Road to Total Slaughter.’ We’re gonna put those eight guys in a house, they’re gonna live with each other for a week and you’re gonna be able to see them prepare for it as well.”
Later in their sit-down with Sway, Slaughterhouse spilled some news about their next album Glass House. They revealed that Just Blaze will be executive producing the whole album. They also told us that Justice League, Aarab Muzik, !llmind, & Cardiak are the other producers involved as wel.
