Everyone knows that the new Slaughterhouse project is on the way in 2012. What people don’t know is how they’re putting it all together. Considering hip-hop’s biggest ego (Joe Budden) makes up a quarter of the group, it seems like their dynamic might be a little bit off. That and the fact that a four member hip-hop group hasn’t been successful since, well, ever.
Joey cleaned up nice this morning on ESPN’s popular morning sports show. After speaking on the Denver Broncos’ sensation Tim Tebow, he plugged the Slaughterhouse album which should be arriving next April. Wale had a much better, more insightful cameo on the show. Let’s get Tyler and the OF crew on there as well.
We’ve got 70 for you this time; the best of the best hip hop tracks from the past two months. Pretty damn extensive list, but if you think I missed any let me or dharis know on twitter (@dflanz, @AllMyHeadMusic). Download links for most; other ones you can listen to on youtube or buy.
- I can’t even imagine what beats J. Cole is saving for himself if he’s giving away ones like this, and this. Along with Cole, Kendrick is right up there as one of the best young rappers in the game. This might be the best song he’s dropped to date.
- Already beginning to be played out on the radio, but there’s no denial that this song is a jam. Love that Drake is sticking with the producers that have always brought out the best in him (40), contrary to what Wiz Khalifa has turned to (Stargate tracks over Johnny Juliano on Rolling Papers???).
- Zero Heroes is my favorite mixtape of the year so far, hands down. Truly great songs top to bottom; this one’s my favorite along with “Smallville”.
- Roscoe completely steals this show as he outshines mediocre verses from both Fab & Wiz. Despite an abundance of corny lines, “Oh My” bumps harder than any other song that dropped in the past 2 months. Click the link to watch the extremely dope video.
- The best song on Goblin. Tyler spits for four minutes showing off some impressive rhyme schemes over a pounding, twisted beat he made himself.
Now a member of Shady Records, Slaughterhouse is back in the studio making some music. They are going to release an EP on February 8th. Below is the six track tracklist along with some familiar artwork. If you recall, they used very similar artwork for their debut album back in 2009.
1. Back on the Scene f. Dres
2. Sun Doobie
3. Everybody Down
4. Put Some Money On It (Remix) f. The Lox
5. Fight Club (Remix)
6. Move On (Remix) f. Iffy
Pump, Pump, Pump, Pump it Up. Just kidding. Since he joined with Joell Ortiz, Crooked I and Royce to form Slaughterhouse, Joey B’s verses have been dope. Check out this leak off his upcoming release “Mood Muzik 4″.
