Slaughterhouse - Onslaught
Mad bars in ya neck!
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new supergroup in hip-hop!
Slaughterhouse: Joe Budden (Jersey City), Joell Ortiz (Brooklyn), Royce Da 5'9" (Detroit) and Crooked-I (LA).
If this isn't a rap nerd's (ahem) dream, then I don't know what is. If you're paying attention to what I'm telling you around here, then you know that these emcees appear together on a track from Budden's new mixtape, called "Slaughterhouse". Working together, these monsters developed a friendly sense of competition and realized that they were by far some of the best and most unheralded in "the game". A few late night Patron sessions later, and the idea was sparked that the 4-headed beast should come together for an album. While that idea is still in the works, they have given us their second song together, and first as a solid unit.
BTW, Joe Budden seems to record at least 20hrs of each day, so you can check out video of how all this kicked off on his YouTube channel, Joe Budden TV.

Since this is a competition, I gotta give it to Joell Ortiz (4th verse) on this one. If these dudes can get their schedules together, and line up the right producers...their album has instant classic potential. They already "got da innanet goin' nuts" (c)-Paul Wall
