Three years ago, Joe Budden, Crooked I, Royce da 5’9, and Joell Ortiz came together to form Slaughterhouse. At one time or another, all four rappers had some sort of hype surrounding them. Despite the hype, all of the rappers had trouble releasing their highly-anticipated albums.
As Slaughterhouse was forming, Eminem was returning from a five-year hiatus, picking up where he left off. There were rumors of Eminem adding Slaughterhouse to his Shady Records, which did not happen immediately. Slaughterhouse released their self-titled debut on E1 Music and then signed with Shady Records.
Late last year, Slaughterhouse revealed their Shady Records debut would come early in 2012. Their album, welcome to: OUR House, was soon given a May release date, which would later be changed to June and then July. Currently, Slaughterhouse is working on a new mixtape and have been working with Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, and Ab-Soul, the Black Hippy movement.
Recently, FUSE TV spoke to Slaughterhouse and they discussed their work with the Black Hippy movement and they also spoke on the delays on their album. welcome to: OUR House is now set for an August 28 release date, the same day as Meek Mill and Beanie Sigel.
