On Friday, Eminem and Shady Records will be dropping a two-disc compilation entitled Shady XV. Preceded by the massive, 66 track mixtape that we premiered for the label over the weekend, the project arrived on Spotify today for your streaming pleasure.
Joe Budden's debut EP, Some Love Lost, is now in stores, which nowadays really only means on thing: it's also available on Spotify. The new project finds Joe in his "ordinary Joe" mode, digging deep into his personal issues to draw some captivating music. No club bangers or money talk on this one.
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.
