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.

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.

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.
