For the title of this next album, Slaughterhouse is sticking’ to the script, the “house” metaphor. They had Slaughterhouse, On The House and Welcome to: Our House. Sonically, their formula is simple: hard beats with four of the most lyrical wordsmiths each trying to outdo one another non every track. With the exception of “Goodbye” off of Our House in 2012, which was about loss of a loved one (remix featuring Fat Joe dedicated to Chris Lighty), for the most part, the quartet’s content has been 1 part street, 1 part slick pimp sh-t, 2 parts extra lyrical bravado.
But now on this new album, ‘Glass House‘, due out later this year, Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9″, Crooked I and Joell Ortiz – are going to get personal. Crooked I told VIBE in a recent interview:
“We were going through different things personally in our life and it just shines through the music,” said Crooked. “That’s what’s going to make it relatable to the fan. It’s everyday struggles, everyday pain, everyday obstacles. You’re going to go through a journey when you listen to this album.”
Glass House will be executive produced by Just Blaze, but that doesn’t mean he is handling all the production. Just has recruited J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Cardiak, AraabMuzik and Illmind already and it is rumored DJ Premier may contribute to the album as well.
Slaughterhouse is currently on their Glass House Tour. I dare you to throw stones!!
