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.
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.
In December Slaughterhouse announced a new tour kicking off in March titled "Glass House" tour, which we assume would be in conjunction with their upcoming new album, thus it may come as no surprise that their album is actually titled Glass House.
Joe Budden certainly seems confident in the new Slaughterhouse project. The New York wordsmith also made sure to stress that his feelings about the LP are sincere, realizing just how often "rappers say that" to promote their albums.
Slaughterhouse are getting ready to drop their follow-up to welcome to: Our House, and while the project is complete, the rap supergroup have no plans on releasing it until Eminem is done with his chart takeover. MTV spoke to Joe Budden about the crew's new record.
Well it looks like Slaughterhouse will partake in the most exciting part of each year's BET Hip Hop Award Show.... the cypher.
Taking to Instagram earlier today, Joe Budden revealed a photo (above) of DJ Premier, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5'9, and himself with the caption:
"It's that time again.....#Cypher"
Earlier in the month we were given the tracklist for Crooked I's Apex Predator, and anticipation for the project has built steadily since. The project officially dropped today, and the Slaughterhouse rapper has been kind enough to offer fans with a free stream to sample the project before purchasing.
