Slaughterhouse (Edited)

Slaughterhouse by Slaughterhouse
Released: Aug 2009
Label: eOne Music
Slaughterhouse is hip-hop as battering ram -- there's little subtlety and lots of swagger; little swoon and lots of stabbing. As a technical exercise, it's great. Slaughterhouse emcees Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Royce Da 5'9" come equipped with a cadre of great one-liners, and their line breaks and wordplay are similarly superior. Plus their voices and hypermasculine personalities generally coalesce. It's a throwback to a time when hip-hop was simpler, even though it may sound monotonous to more modern ears.
