Vodpod videos no longer available.

DJ Semtex caught up to the Slaughterhouse Machine after their performance in Colorado. Some of the issues they discuss are how they write in the booth, how they avoid conflict (?), what it’s like to have the coastal unity and much much more. You are going to be seeing a lot of media about these guys with the album they just put out, shit’s ridiculous.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This video had me in stitches the whole time I watched it. XXL has a game show called I Know Rap People, and to commemorate the release of the Slaughterhouse album, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, Royce Da 5’9″ & Joe Budden all were guests on the show. The guys answer questions about their own group, and the internet in general. The answers these guys throw out there will have you laughing your ass off. Make sure you go get that Slaughterhouse album now.

Crooked I is Hip Hop Official’s Artist of the Week

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , on Wednesday, August 12, 2009 by Tim Althaus

I was just talking with a couple buddies today about Crooked I. I feel like I have slept on this dude for soooo long, and now I’m paying for it. Crooked I might be one of the nastiest emcees I’ve ever heard with wordplay. I was telling my buddy Motz today that I don’t even think it’s fair that Crooked gets to rhyme because he’s so good. Every time that I listen to the Slaughterhouse record it seems like more often than not his verses stick out like crazy. Crooked I is known for his connection with Death Row, and his Hip Hop Weekly tracks where he released a track every week of the year for a year. This guy is a fucking beast on the microphone, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone quite like him. Do yourself a favor, watch this video and click the Hip Hop Weekly link and be amazed.

Slaughterhouse Talks About Contenders

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on Tuesday, August 11, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz & Royce Da 5’9″ stopped by Hard Knock TV to talk about their new album, and give some insight into who they think would be a 4 man group that could content. I love how Joell is just wylin’ out the whole time, and the rest of the guys give some serious answers. I am really surprised that no one mentions eMC (why does everyone sleep on eMC?). If you haven’t copped the Slaughterhouse album yet, there truly is no hope left for you.

That the new Slaughterhouse record drops. Joey’s Escape Route officially drops today as well. I can assure you that in about an hour and a half I will be happily making my way to Best Buy to purchase the Slaughterhouse album. If you are one of the people that isn’t going to be making a purchase… I truly feel sorry for you. For all of you Slaughterhouse haters out there, pull your head’s out of your asses.

Joe Budden Wants to “Squaredance” with Raekwon

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , , on Monday, August 10, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Here is Joey’s vlog about all of the madness that ensued at Rock the Bells. Based on this video, I think that things could end up getting really fucking interesting. These guys are just taking this shit way too far.

On a brighter note you can download the track “We Outta Here” (which features Slaughterhouse) off of Joe’s album Escape Route here.

Raekwon Phone Interview + Blood On The Chef’s Apron Freestyle Video

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , , on Monday, August 10, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Recently (before the Joe Budden/Rock the Bells incident), Raekwon did a phone interview with Culture VI Media about OBFCL 2. Rae talks about what it was like to have such a classic album on his first release, and how it may have plagued his later releases. The Chef also talks about how he has grown as an artist, and what he thinks people expect out of him. In a somewhat startling beam of light, Raekwon reveals that he is a big fan of the Slaughterhouse movement and that he could see himself picking up their album. Follow me after the jump to grab the “Blood on the Chef’s Apron Freestyle” video. Continue reading

You will hear Wale, Slaughterhouse & Young Chris on the guest verse aspect. When it comes to production you will hear 9th Wonder, J. Cardim, Chad West & Streetrunner. I sure hope all of you are going out to make well merited purchases tomorrow. Follow me after the jump for the tracklisting. Continue reading

Two New Slaughterhouse Tracks

Posted in Audio, Downloads with tags , , , , , , , on Tuesday, August 4, 2009 by Tim Althaus


Damn, I don’t really have a whole lot to say. If you pirated this album, you should be shanked with a thousand microphones repeatedly until your death. Here are two new tracks from the Slaughterhouse conglomerate courtesy of 2DopeBoyz. These tracks both go harder than concrete, and I can assure you that I will be at the store on August 11th during my break to pick this one up. The first track below is “Microphone” which is produced by Alchemist, whom you all know never disappoints. The second joint is produced by Emile and it’s called “Onslaught 2” and Emile’s horns paint a beautiful backdrop for these Royce, Joell, Joe & Crooked to massacre. Don’t fucking sleep.
