Slaughterhouse Showcase

For those of your that are not familiar with Slaughterhouse, they are the "rap supergroup" made up of undergroup spitters Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, and Royce da 5'9". They formed late in 2008 after they all appeared together on the Joe Budden album Halfway House, on the song Slaughterhouse.

They released their self titled album to the acclaim of many. Each member of the group feeds off each other to create an album which I can listen to practically beginning to end. They have all been releasing a lot of freestyles over tracks for mixtapes and many just for the fans.

This featured track is a freestyle over Lloyd Bank's Beamer, Benz, or Bentley. Joell had his own freestyle over it entitled Nissan, Honda Chevy, while Joey linked up with Royce on the song New York, Jersey, Philly. This "mash-up" combines Joey and Joell's verse to give us an end product that is the best of both worlds.
