Slaughterhouse releases the official music video for their “Welcome To: OUR HOUSE” track, “Goodbye.”
that anghellic bitch was pale as shit lol
idk the sh lp got alot worse, i forget i even had it on my phone, i used to like this song. after 5 listen’s i could care less about it…..
Really? Ironically I feel differently. It’s gotten better for me at this point. Admitting that I haven’t played it much on my iPhone lately, but I have it in the disk changer in my car, and bang it every now and then when on the road. I feel like a few of the tracks were greatly under-rated. Like “Get Up”, “Die”, “Park It Sideways”, and “Our Way”.
It was a great overall album, according to me.
u always bring up get up, die, and park it sideways….
u have seen them in concerts and u a tru die heart fan that’s why u stick up for them so much but they had three years to come up with a classic!
etc…. the songs u named should have been alot better!!!
with all those millz they said they got for signing u think they could atleast get better beats! if their not going to be more lyrical! nothing they said was crazy! cuckoo had better lines in that one song then this whole cd as a whole…………video of the year my azz
I am a die heart fan, and I admit the album was a cup full of booty juice…
The stans will suck it dry though… They love booty juice.
if they put out another cd they need more of a real hiphop sound, split alot of the group up on tracks. royce/crooked, joe/joell. every one should have a song by them selfs! showing off skills. i got a theme…. intro, middle midtro, midtro, endtro, outro. joell on the intro, crooked on the middle midtro, royce on the midtro or interlude, “sum might say” joe on the endtro and all four of them on the outro without itunes cuts! 15 tracks with no skits with them doing all the hooks with hiphop samples from the past 30 years of rap. no feat’s! for s.h fans not slim’s fans
Hahahahaha at “die heart”
I knew it was die hard. I was mimicking Brandon… lol
still a dick i c
I guess I gotta read more of these conversations.
Listen to me. I don’t know why you don’t understand some simple facts.. Take out your notepad, and pull up a chair.
Slaughterhouse dropped their self titled debut independent album that had some of the best bars I’d had heard at that time. Every single song was a lyrical masterpiece. But then again, all their solo work has been lyrical masterpieces too, Nickel, Joe, Crook and Ortiz all have dropped nasty rhymes independently, so they didn’t do anything new, but stayed on their simple pattern. They dropped crazy bars and got recognition, and ultimately signed by the biggest entity in rap today.
Now I’m sure you can agree that an artist when signed to a major label is limited by many means. His talent starts to be partially controlled by a few other people. Take MANY examples: J. Cole (FNL >> CW:SS), Big Sean (Finally Famous mxtp >>> album), Wale (Mixtape About Nothing >>> Attention Def) etc.
Secondly, when working on a second album, an artist has to show some sort of growth. The entire world knows Slaughterhouse could rape beats all day, everyday. But can they make an actual full-length disk worth buying on a bigger scale? I bet if the album had joints like Weight Scale, Juggernauts, See Dead People, etc, you’d been all praise. But that’d be the same old slaughterhouse. What did they gain from such a big platform that’s Shady? Can they ALL stay relevant on one particular song concept/topic? Can they make infectious hooks? Can they appeal to 100,000 listeners rather than like 10,000? If so, then an album like “Slaughterhouse (2009)” cannot do the job. Whereas “WT OH” had the potential.
Yes, I’m a die hard fan, yes I’ve seen them in concerts, yes I stick up for them. But that doesn’t mean I don’t understand the way the industry works. That doesn’t mean that I won’t admit when something isn’t up to par. That doesn’t mean that I’ll keep praising them even though they don’t deserve it. There’s so many factors that come into play to make up a fantastic album besides “raw bars” “sick lines”, “metaphors” etc. (while this album still contained those factors too). So when you compare “Lyrical Murderers” to “Our Way”, think much deeper than the aforementioned qualities, and you’ll see their progression.
“Yes, I’m a die hard fan, yes I’ve seen them in concerts, yes I stick up for them. But that doesn’t mean I don’t understand the way the industry works. That doesn’t mean that I won’t admit when something isn’t up to par. That doesn’t mean that I’ll keep praising them even though they don’t deserve it.”
I HIGHLY doubt that… You still praise everything 50 Cent releases lol
yea but i would rather hear raw bars then give it away give it away give it away now lol or die die die die somebody going to die die die tonight! u said lupe cd was like a 9.5 too sooooooooo
I disagree, u shouldnt condone the way that the industry works just due to the fact that “thats the way it is”. Shit wasnt like that so much in the 90s which is why the 90s is praised as one of the best music periods ever. An artist can still sell their musical talent to the mainstream public without dumbing their material down, WHICH is what slaughterhouse didnt do. They could have still maintained their style that they’ve used to gain major recognition in the underground, but just rap over hard ass beats that are more appealing to mainstream and some nice hooks without sacrificing their style. They did not acheive that, they completely sacrificed their style.
“An artist can still sell their musical talent to the mainstream public without dumbing their material down”. – > I disagree.
Like I said in my previous post, while signed under a sales machine that’s Shady records, and dropping their 2nd installment, a challenge arising for SH is can they appeal to a mass of 100,000 people instead of 10,000? And an album such as their debut cannot do that. When you’re in the big leagues, your main focus diverts from underground respect, to sales. You earn your lyrical respect during your way to the big leagues. When you’re in the big leagues, you’ve earned your respect, now you have to sell fucking records. I’m not a big fan of “Throw it Away”, “Throw That”, “Place To Be”, myself, but they needed that for more mainstream appeal. And THAT is how the industry works which brings the point “that’s the way it is”. It shouldn’t be. I miss the 90’s rap scene as much as anyone, but that’s not coming back. J. Cole didn’t have to drop “Work Out”, but he needed it for sales. Joe Budden didn’t need that Put it Down song with Lil Wayne. Eminem certainly didn’t need Rihanna.
You said an artist can sell their talent without dumbing their material down. It’s true only for their LEGIT die hard fans. Lupe sold SO MUCH more with LASERS than any other CD because a lot of his shit was dumbed down radio crap that people ate up, and his label was happy.
Recovery sold SO MUCH more than Relapse because it was filled with radio friendly, and catchy songs. And the list goes on.
They did not “completely sacrifice their style”. I agree, some songs were not SH standard, but a lot of others were. “Our House”, “Goodbye”, “Our Way”, “Hammer Dance” are classic Slaughterhouse.
Just because an A grade student got a B+ on his final doesn’t mean that he didn’t study or focus at all. Nor does it mean that his exam was totally wrong. It just means that he had the potential of getting the A, but due to some factors, he couldn’t.
Nah still disagree. With that mentality, every artist that blows will turn to shit. Kendrick is a prime example of an artist that made it big through pure skill and originality. And all those other artists that sell out lose their real fans who made em who they are, but in return they gain a bunch of temporary fans that leave as soon as they become u lil less hot. Stop supportin that garbage
haha tru shit
nah fuck that, that album was definitely not up to par with Slaughterhouse standards. They weren’t bein themselves. Fuck Eminem for trying to change them.
REally dude. I feel you but ever since I heard this track and cant stop listening to it. A real heart felt song which was beyond unexpected by this crew. Almost shed a tear listening to ortiz verse cause I know exactly where he coming from!
r.i.p. to ur granny
You was 5th row at the grammys?
Forgot all about this album.
how can anyone hate on this song or video???
how can anyone like the dark knight rise???
fuck yall! it was almost as bad as spider man 3
This is not only one of the best songs from the album, but is easily one of the best songs of the year 2012, period
deserves a grammy
SH deserves a grammy in general, but it won’t happen because they won’t ever reach that billboard chart success.
However, if Kendrick gets a grammy for AT LEAST “best new artist”, it’ll be an amazing day for hip-hop and its real fans.
man im hoping for an AOTY Nomination
and offfcourse best hiphop album
he’s got everything that grammy longs for
chart success , Critics support , public recognition , fans , everything
i was talking about Kendrick
I highly doubt he’ll get an Album of the Year nomination. Maybe Best Rap Album. Maybe Best Rap Solo Performance (for Swimming Pools). And DEFINITELY Best New Artist.
Dope Video, should have a million views in a few weeks
Best song on the album…
dammnnnn this vid is ineffable to me #teamshady love vids like this
team shady? That sounds like some highschool groupie shit
americans need to stop bein undercover fags hw in the hell two words can lead to a gay ass depiction like that high school? speakin of which is sum backward ass shit 4 u to be commenting unfunny shit like this y’all english class obviously got inferior syllabus if u don’t like #slaughterhouse poetry
slaughterhouse n eminem haterz are gay people
Honestly listening to slaughterhouse’s album, I realized Joe Budden is the only well rounded talented member in the group
Crooked I and Joell are boring as fuck. Like I don’t think I could sit through a whole Crooked I album, dude has NO replay value.
Royce is a clever ass nigga though, he’s not as good as he thinks he is though lol
those clever lines you think royce has i see as corny and lame… i could listen to crookeds multisyllable approach and rhyme scheme all day..if that shit dont stimulate your mind then something wrong with you.plus his flow in unmatched..
Your sn is swagzilla so im not surprised…
joe budden in the group just never goes with the beat…his solo shit is great though
