Crooked I - Apex Predator | Album Stream


After 15 years of sharing rhymes, Crooked I finally releases his official debut studio album, Apex Predator.

Let me fill you in on a little Crooked I history, really quick. Back in the late '90s, Crook's album with 19th Street/Virgin Records was never released. Then in the 2000s, two projects for Death Row Records were recorded, Untouchable and Say Hi To The Bad Guy, those were also never released. Dun Dun Dunnnnn. While the Long Beach spitter has released a ton of freebies and mixtapes throughout the years and has recorded and released albums with Slaughterhouse, Apex Predator is still his first album and "truly independent."

Crooked I - "YODO" (You Only Die Once) | Music Video

Slaughterhouse - "House Gang" | New Music


Originally given to fans on Funkmaster Flex's most recent mixtape Who You Mad At? Me Or Yourself?, Slaughterhouse now unleash the CDQ version of "House Gang."

Without doubt one of the better records put together by the lyrical supergroup, consisting of Royce Da 5'9", Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Crooked I as of late, the DJ RellyRell produced joint reignites the interest once again in Eminem's four horsemen. Read more

Joe Budden - No Love Lost | Album Review


Throughout his career Joe Budden has been considered many things - an outcast, a drunk, very much up himself, and more recently a sucker for love. While he may admit to being, or having been, one or some of these things, something has been missed. How about survivor? Judging from his recent verse on "Want You Back" with Fabolous and Cassie, as well as a few older joints, and his Slaughterhouse entries of course, Joey has physically, mentally, and emotionally been through the wars.

Bringing to the table his first official solo project since the conception of hip-hop supergroup Slaughterhouse, of which he is a part alongside Crooked I, Royce Da 5'9", and Joell Ortiz, Budden might have finally silenced his critics. Read more

Slaughterhouse - "Goodbye" | Music Video

Slaughterhouse's Boi-1da produced "Goodbye" was by far my favourite track on the supergroup's debut album, Welcome To: Our House. The song is about saying "goodbye" to loved ones- Joe Budden to the identical twins he was supposed to have with Esther Baxter;  Crooked I to the uncle who helped bring him up; and Ortiz to his late grandmother- and the different experiences of loss are movingly rendered by all three rappers.Read more

Slaughterhouse - Welcome To Our House | Album Review

Let’s not get it twisted, Slaughterhouse is the squad. Flipmode may have said it but Slaughterhouse are it.

A deadly foursome, consisting of Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, Joe Budden and of course Royce Da 5’9, are all names not to be scoffed at as far as lyrical prowess is concerned. Successful entities within their own right, now a collective they are signed to Eminem’s Shady Records imprint, and the time has come for the underground to go overground. Read more
