Slaughterhouse fans may still be patiently waiting for a new album from the lyrical murderers, but half the group has teamed up for a brand new track. We're happy to premiere "Truth (Why U Mad) the latest single from Kxng Crooked, which features fellow Slaughterhouse rhymer Royce Da 5'9". And, as you might expect, both rappers are bringing out the bars on this one. After all, both Royce and Crooked are some of the strongest lyricists in the game, and this track finds them spitting venomous lines aimed squarely at the conservative party. 

"Truth" is the first single off Crooked's upcoming album Good Vs Evil 2, which drops December 8th, 2017. You might notice the particularly controversial artwork, which depicts a kneeling Donald Trump awaiting approval from a conglomerate of historically evil figureheads, including Bin Laden, Adolf Hitler, Fidel Castro, and more. In a move that's sure to cause some uproar, Crooked included Jesus among the clique of dictators and war criminals, explaining that  it's "No shot at Christians, but that particular image of Christ symbolizes death, slavery and colonization to many. Most American slave masters and the Klu Klux Klan members hang that image on their walls and truly believe themselves to be Christians."

Insofar as the lyrical content, both Crooked and Royce are in fine form, but that's to be expected. Crooked kicks things off with a savage flow, spitting some serious head-turning multi-syllable bars: "the hood is movin' different than you envisioned consumerism's the new religion, there's fewer Christians and fewer Bishops." And that's only the first part of the rhyme scheme. As for Royce, well, he does what he does best, delivering a classic mix of humor and braggadocio. "Marshall called me the best out, I call him the kettle black," raps Royce, wearing his Eminem co-sign like a badge of honor. 

Quotable Lyrics

The hood is movin' different than you envisioned
Consumerism's the new religion, there's fewer Christians and fewer Bishops
Reading them Jewish scriptures, a slew of bitches with shoe addictions
And n***as that's truly riskin it all for the Coupe
