Slaughterhouse (The Super Group)

The Mixtape
Download Here (via megaupload)

Now when I’m talkin about street-hop, I keep talkin about Crooked I, and burning copies of The Block Obama. When I’m not doing that, I keep talking about Royce and burning Bar Exams (1 & 2) for people. When I’m not doing that I’m talking about Joel Ortiz and burning whatever i got on him. Then i get to yackin about Joe Budden and that brings me to the other day when i was talkin to a kid and he was like; “man, you’re hollering at me like im the congregation but you’re not even in church”. He put me up on Slaughterhouse. I knew about slaughterhouse, but the last mixtape they did was one new song and like all of thier old seperate material from previous mixtapes, it wasnt that hot, it was just a bunch of stuff i already had. Now this was a whole new deal and it was thick with new materials. How do i feel now?

Joell Ortiz, Royce Tha 5’9, Crooked I, Joe Budden + Together = SLAUGHTERHOUSE

So heres what you need to do. you need to cop this mixtape and get ready and pray and stuff. If the album comes out its going to be sick and you’ll all need days of bedrest and medical attention like you got the swine flu. Heaven forbid you’re in mexico or this might kill you.

from The Block Obama – Mixtape For The Streets (2008, Indie)

Those of us acquainted with the Crooked I, hip hop weekly 52 week record breaking performance are anxiously waiting the next Crooked I full album. We all honestly want to hear what he’s going to say next, what he’s going to do, and how hot is it going to be when he does it. Since the early 90’s he’s been getting our attention with breakneck speedy-off the wall metaphors and his insistence on being what gangster rap should be in reference to being Hip Hop. We b-boys and fans of the lyricism that made hip hop a form of art that (a far cry from the radio related garbage that calls itself Hip Hop in a cruel mockery of the music we love) can truly appreciate what Crooked I is out there doing.

Well he’s back at it again, seven months after his awesome “St Valentines Day Bossacre Mixtape”, he drops “The Block Obama”. This album does what he is most famous for and takes Crooked I and his favorite radio or main rotation beats and puts them together to make something hard hitting and lyrically flowing. Thats not to say all the beats are old recycled beats, though. This album has more than a couple cuts on here that are newly produced tracks. It gets me juiced, really, Crooks is one of the illest out there. This mixtape is a win-win for any of us hip hop fans, its Crooked I, good beats, new production on some tracks and a guest appearance by the Horse Shoe Gang. Crooked I is gangster rap for hip hop fans. When youre from California like me and my boy DJ Audio 1, WE NEED albums and artists like this. Download it! Its time for a change… OBAMA!

I should also mention, this album has nothing to do with his stance on Obama… i kept waiting for it… but all he did was make a couple of jokes. Basically, the title referrs to the statement that he wants to be the Obama of the block, who brings change to the west coast hip hop scene.

from The Bar Exam 2 (Mixed by DJ Green Lantern) 2008

If you haven’t heard the Bar Exam by DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9, then you need to take a step back. This is a continuation of the previous exhibition by the duo, but this time its done with DJ Green Lantern. Royce spits the hottest fire and does it with that real skill. The underlying message behind the Bar Exam series of mixtapes is obviously, if you can spit like this, then you’re street legal. Royce, a veteran prosecutor, is now top candidate for supreme court justice.

First, Royce has done nothing on this album except improve. His style is much more solid and he doesn’t sound as much like he was ranting and just playing with styles and phrases. He dropped the fixation on being the “new Guru” and the beats and themes aren’t as redundant and the whole product is, again, very strong. This time he brought Kid Vishis through on more than one track, validating him. Dont look for any depth from Royce, he doesnt have anything to say except, “I rap very very good” in various different metaphors and examples. while redundant, its not so much noticeable because of the tremendous skill and charisma he exhibits.

DJ Green Lantern made a smash with his mixtape with Nas and continued moving with a ridiculously strong momentum. One of the interesting things about a DJ Green Lantern mixtape is that he really sets a theme and depth to his arrangements. It doesn’t feel like a simple mixtape where tracks are hashed together with a lyricist just rapping over beats you’ve already heard. Typically, each one is a well constructed, something-to-entertain, with attention getting skits and interludes added in to humanize each artist. I personally keep a rotation of DJ Greens for when I have guests over and we play on the XBox. This is probably one of his best mixtapes to date. if you’re a Green Lantern fan or a Royce fan, you’ll be satisfied. If youre not a fan yet, you will be. Grab The Mixtape HERE

A few words from our close homie Fishr Pryce on this release:

“So some of you all might know that I am the Tour DJ for Philly’s iCON the Mic King, and we figured that it was time that I did a mix tape for him. Since we are on the verge of the 3rd Renaissance of hip hop, It was only right that with this mix that we Re:Introduce you all to 2 of the people who are trying their best to make this happen. This mix should have dropped last week, but it was put on halt due to the untimely death of some one close to my family, Ms. Rita Barge, so I am dedicating this to her. Unfortunately in trying to rush get this mix out as soon as possible, I left 3 tracks out. Don’t be surprised if you see an amended mix out pretty soon as well. For what its worth I still feel this is a solid mix, and I hope you all enjoy it.”

Busta Rhymes has teamed with Mick Boogie to release a new online mixtape entitled “Dillagence” that they hope will continue to showcase the talents of the late J-Dilla.

The new mixtape features exclusive songs produced by Dilla for Busta that have never seen the light of day. It also features Papoose, Cassidy, Talib Kweli, MOP, Rah Digga and more.

“When I called Busta with this idea, he was so excited,” said Mick Boogie. “One day I woke up and my in-box was flooded with songs and songs of crazy Busta/Dilla material. I’m honored to be a part of this project.”

“When Mick brought this concept to the table, I felt the timing was right. Dilla left so much incredible music behind with me personally,” says Busta Rhymes. “It’s almost like he knew I was a vessel for him, and would be able to continue to champion his movement.”
