After hearing what feels like every other rapper on the planet remix "Hot Nigga" (we posted freestyles from Ace Hood, T.I., Gunplay, and Lil Kim in the past 24 hours alone), we can officially add Slaughterhouse's Joell Ortiz to the Bobby Shmurda hype machine.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
In the hip-hop industry, there are four kinds of artists: those who have crossover appeal, those who don’t, those who choose not to, and those who shouldn’t. Slaughterhouse, as a collective and as solo members, simply shouldn’t.
Slaughterhouse hit fans with their new mixtape this afternoon House Rules, which serves as a warm-up to the Shady Records' group forthcoming studio album, Glass House.
We definitely cannot complain about the ten-track free offering from the lyrical MCs, which follows up their 2012 tape On The House.
Last week, we heard news that Slaughterhouse was going to be dropping a new mixtape soon titled House Rules. While nothing was officially confirmed, the crew decided to surprise us with a new track tonight titled "SayDatThen", which as they put it, will be off that upcoming project.
It’s been a minute since we last heard some new material from Slaughterhouse. While fans anxiously await for their next album, Glass House, it appears they will now have something to hold them over until then.
Joe Budden posted an image to Instagram yesterday which gained him a lot of negative attention. The Slaughterhouse rapper put up an image of a Sikh man-- seemingly going through customs at the airport --with the caption, “Not on my watch Homeboy!”, suggesting the man was a terrorist.
"Bars" is the latest hyper-lyrical offering from Brooklyn, New York City poet Joell Ortiz, familiarly soundtracked by Philadelphia, Pennsylvania producer Sarom.
Stream it to the left and let us know what you think, folks.
With a new Slaughterhouse album on the way, Joell Ortiz decides to drop a solo freestyle, where he raps over Pusha T's "Nosetalgia" beat and asks you why your favorite rapper is your favorite rapper.
How does his take compare to King Push's?
Look out for the new Slaughterhouse project, due out later this year.
