Timoteo’s 2012 Year In Review

Posted in Year in Review with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on Tuesday, December 25, 2012 by Tim Althaus

Me and Hansen

Is it really that time of year again? I have no idea where 2012 went; it seems like it was just January a few short months ago. In this seemingly short year, there has been a slew of superb releases – especially in the Hip-Hop realm. Like I’ve always said, making a year-end list is no simple task, and it’s inevitable that someone (or a lot of people) will disagree with my choices; however, opinions are unique to each individual, and we are all entitled to our own. If you feel the need to voice your opinion, leave a comment in the C-Section.

Slaughterhouse, “Hammer Dance” (Prod. By araabMUZIK)

Posted in Audio, Media with tags , , , on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 by Tim Althaus

Slaughterhouse have let go of the first single off of their forthcoming Shady Records debut, Welcome to Our House. “Hammer Dance” is a certified banger that features none other than araabMUZIK on the boards. I’ve been waiting to hear this single for quite some time, and without a doubt, I can say I’m impressed. Even though I was a huge fan of araabMUZIK’s solo album Electronic Dream, I’m glad to hear that he’s back behind the boards in the Hip-Hop realm. All four emcees absolutely decimate araab’s incredible instrumental that features a nice little hard rock sample that some of you may be familiar with (*cough* Korn *cough*). Tracks like this are going to make me very irritable while waiting for May 15th to get here.

Ray Benzino? Who?

Posted in Audio, Downloads, Media, Video with tags , , , , , , , on Monday, September 7, 2009 by Tim Althaus

You may be asking yourself that exact question. Who the fuck is Ray Benzino? Well if you were wondering, Ray Benzino is the man behind The Source Magazine, and he’s no doubt a dumbass. In this video he talks about the new Jay-Z cover (hating on it), why Slaughterhouse is overrated (Really?), he also says “Fuck Royce Da 5’9”. Apparently Benzino wanted to order a coffin for himself, because I dont think anyone should be fronting on the Slaughterhouse Machine, especially a dude that doesn’t make good music. Ray ended up taking it one step further and releasing an Eminem & Slaughterhouse diss track called “Good Fellaz”. Now, I don’t know about you guys but… I think that if either of these two respond to Benzino, shit is gonna be crazy as fuck. Follow me after the jump to download “Good Fellaz”. Continue reading

Joe Budden

Here’s a new single from Joey that is produced by The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, and it’s called “No Competition”. It’s always good to hear new shit from any member of the Slaughterhouse Machine. If you are still hating on Budden, shame on you. Go out and get Padded Room & Escape Route now!

Slaughterhouse Performs “Fight Club” @ First Ave Rock the Bells Show

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , , on Monday, August 31, 2009 by Tim Althaus

I missed this fucking show because I was an idiot. My friend Aaron told me about Rock the Bells being at First Avenue awhile back. I didn’t even know that Rock the Bells was coming through Minneapolis until mid-July, and by that time it was just too late. It seems like all I do is miss out on shows that I want to go to, I really need to make some changes so I can see some more live music. Here is some live footage of the Slaughterhouse Machine performing at the First Ave. Rock the Bells stop in Minneapolis. On the above video you can catch the track “Fight Club”, and you can follow me after the jump to catch “Onslaught”. Continue reading

DJ Premier Talks Slaughterhouse & Gang Starr

Premo is easily one of the greatest producers in the history of the game. As many would say, if he co-signs it you know it’s straight fire. In his interview with As The World Spins, he tells us (which I am highly grateful to hear) that Royce’s album Street Hop will be hitting the streets on October 11th, and that there isn’t a Premo beat on the Slaughterhouse album because he was mixing Street Hop. DJ Premier also mentions that he is down to do a new Gang Starr album as soon as Guru is ready, because he loves the chemistry that they have together. It’s also great to hear Premier talk about what he would consider “real Hip-Hop”, he couldn’t be more right.

Album Review: Slaughterhouse, Slaughterhouse

Posted in Music Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , on Thursday, August 13, 2009 by Tim Althaus

slaughterhouse-718945 I (as well as everyone else) knew well before this album came out that this album was going to be a benchmark for lyrical linguistics. Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, Crooked I & Royce Da 5’9″ are all known for their raw radical and introspective lyrics, and when you put them together the results are going to be monumental. On this album Slaughterhouse sets out to prove that although you may have thought Hip-Hop was close to dead, they plan on showing you it isn’t. I can almost assure you that there probably won’t be another album to come out this year that has anywhere near the lyrical display of this album. Continue reading

Slaughterhouse Already Talking Second Album

Posted in Music News with tags , , on Thursday, August 13, 2009 by Tim Althaus

According to a HipHopDX article that I read this morning (it’s from yesterday), the guys from Slaughterhouse are already talking about a sophomore follow-up to their self-titled release. The way Joell Ortiz made it sound, is that they would like to put out all of their solo efforts and then move to the next collaborative effort. The guys also said that they will probably start recording some material for the follow-up in the interim so that they don’t have to bang out an album in 6 days again. Joell reveals even more good news when he sates,  “I feel like all of our solo albums will have us featured on there”. Crooked I mentions that even though there were tracks that were left off of the album, they will surface one way or another because “the world needs to hear it”.

It sounds like the next year is going to be pretty insane as far as these guys is concerned, not to mention everything else that is coming out in the next year. This just proves that Hip-Hop is nowhere near dead, it’s a healthy, living and breathing organism that is stronger than ever.
