Kendrick Lamar & Ab-Soul Praise Slaughterhouse, Speak On Comparisons

"Hands down, those are the illest lyricists in the business," says Ab-Soul. Kendrick adds, "Slaughterhouse is too crazy."

As the Top Dawg Entertainment movement grows, Black Hippy has been compared to several other groups. The crew, which consists of Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul, recently touched on this topic, particularly comparisons with Slaughterhouse. This comparison was brought up during an Invasion Radio interview where Kendrick and Ab shared their thoughts on that comparison and more.

"Slaughterhouse is too crazy," Kendrick said when asked about fan-arguments about who is "the best" between the two groups. "Hands down. They won." 

"Slaughterhouse," added Ab-Soul. "Hands down, those are the illest lyricists in the business. Hands down. Straight up."

K. Dot then went on to explain why he never says "the west is back."

"We always stood against saying, 'The west is back.' TDE? You've never heard us scream that because we felt when you keep saying that, all that it's doing is putting that stigma, saying, 'Y'all was gone?'"

    Anyone who thinks Laughterhouse or Wack Hippy Movement are good should leave Hip-Hop forever. Once Gucci Mane murks them all, these guys would be working at Build-A-Bear with Drake, Kid Cudi and B.o.B. Justin Bieber is the best rapper on the scene after the hip-hop legend Gucci Mane. Even Rakim stated that "Gucci would murk me in a freestyle. One bar so cold" It's Gucci Time!

    laughterhouse have ZERO chemistry; they're only in it because they were desperate and/or hip-hop failures. having basic technical skill on the microphone doesn't make you 'lyrical,' let alone entertaining. that these bums had the biggest push possible with Em & Royce and still get pushed back proves Interscope knows it's a dog-- just like their first album was a fucking dog to everyone but three white battle rap nerds.

    • hate on my dick

    • ETK

      'basic technical skill' shut thefuckup Who made you a hip hop panelist.. You spend your days hating on an article comments section, Slaughterhouse can rap circles around most cats in the game Calling them bums is so hypocritical it makes my eyes bleed

    Slaughterhouse 4 of the best

  • my god

    These dudes are humble man. Honestly though I feel like a TDE album would be a lot better than a Slaughterhouse album. Slaughterhouse has a bunch of ill lyricist, but not many groups have as much chemistry as TDE. As far as one group being better or not. I prefer the music TDE makes over the individual stuff they do. Joey makes great music, but the other guys I can;t really fuck with like that. Being a great lyricist doesn't mean you are going to make a great song or a great album.

    I think fans should stop making comparisons like this. They have different styles. People compare me to Ken all the time, but they don't know that my hadouken is stronger and faster, Ken's shorouken is stronger, has fire and it can do up to 3 hits. They also dont know that my hurricane kick is stronger and only hits once while his hits 3 times. So may this be a lesson to you all. I must get back to my training and defeat Akuma once and for all.

    Whoever doesn't fuck with Black Hippy/TDE will never earn my respect as a legitimate fan of hiphop music or culture. They represent everything that is good about the culture

    • my god

      No that was the dumbest shit I ever heard. Since when did you have to bang to listen to gangsta rap? 90s hip hop must of had you shook like a motherfucker.

    • Ha

      @ Mu That was the dumbest thing I've ever read. You say that like they are all about vintage Hip Hop or something. If a nigga dont get high, then you already are not into Absoul or School Boy. If I dont bang, then I'm not into Jay Rock. And if I'm not into gimmicky delivery, then I'm not into Kendrick. They arent bad at all. They are very talented. But Im not buying their album because Im not into them. They aren't the only option.

      That's the Eminem influence He is influencing Slaughterhouse to go pop the same way he has. It's rotten. You wait for their album. I bet 3+ tracks with have Rihanna, Beyonce or some other RNB singer. If Drake is on there, then its all over
