Slaughterhouse drops an amazing video for “Goodbye”, featuring Joe Budden, Crooked I and Joell Ortiz spittin’ some heartfelt verses. In the past, the super-group has taken some criticism for mostly spittin’ hardcore street/battle lyrics, with plenty wordplay and metaphor, but not a lot of personal struggle. These real life stories are as real as it gets, things that everybody can relate to. The chorus and verses are heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time and might put a tear in the eye of the hardest of hardrocks. Slaughterhouse has definitely outdone themselves with this touching song and the video is beautifully directed. My only question is “Where’s Royce?”. Did something stop him from getting to the studio? Did he opt out for personal reasons? Was he edited out of this version (there was the remix with Fat Joe as well). Was the song just too long, at over 5 minutes, or is there another reason he is absent? Just wondering.

These dudes go in for about 20 minutes. Flex doesn’t say much. Joel Ortiz, Royce 5’9, Crooked I and Joe Budden let the bars do the talking. With that said, so will I. Enjoy.
Sometimes you see a recognizable name who is buzzin’ right now (i.e. Royce) featured on someone’s record, so you give it a second glance. Other times it’s a known producer who always brings heat (Marco Polo), so no matter who is on the record you are going to check it out. Or maybe it’s a certain crew known for bringin’ the ruckus (Brown Bag AllStars) that’s associated with the project that has your attention. Koncept doesn’t really need all that, but the fact that he has all of it should tell you that there’s a reason why. A reason why his crew is known, a reason why he respects good producers and they respect him back, a reason why he can collab with the best of MC’s because like minds think alike and real recognize real talent.
