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.
Produced byÂ G-SquaredÂ (formerly of theÂ Kreators) for CoalMine Records compilation Unearthed,Â â€œOne For The Money” featuresÂ an interesting combination ofÂ Diamond D, a representative from the “Golden Era” of Hip Hop, Skillz, one of the iller lyricists who came up in the 90′s, battling and putting out dope music, and Royce da 5â€™9â€³, who got his start in the late 90′s with his friend Eminem, butÂ is now 1/4 of one of the premiere groups in 2012, on SHADY Records. Â UnearthedÂ drops in the 2nd quarter of 2013 and will feature tracks byÂ Pharoahe Monch, Blu, Large Professor, Kool G Rap, Sean Price, and Torae,Â as well.
Fat Joe adds a heartfelt verse to Violator CEO after his untimely death last week on this allready dope and deep Slaughterhouse track.

Jack Thriller brings up some people’s reaction to the song “My Life” featuring Cee-Lo Green, which is that it is too “commercial” sounding or doesn’t sound like a Slaughterhouse type of song. The 4 man group takes issue with that and Jack starts to feel like they are going at him, lol. It’s a funny moment and also a nice chat with Slaughterhouse, Royce and Crooked revealing their emotional connections to the lyrics of that song.
