Crooked I Says Slaughterhouse Will Elevate Hip Hop, Speaks On Recording

Crooked I shares that Slaughterhouse will "take Hip Hop to a whole 'nother level" while also explaining how the group records "like a well oiled machine."

As Slaughterhouse, the group is preparing to drop their Shady debut. Crooked I, who recently released Psalm 82:V6, spoke about the new album, what he feels it will do for Hip Hop and how the group records "like a well oiled machine." 

"I can't wait until the people hear this," he told DJ Skee of the new Slaughterhouse album. "I already know what it's gonna be for Hip Hop. I'm not talking about Billboard charts. I'm talking about what it's gonna do for Hip Hop. It's gonna take Hip Hop to a whole 'nother level."

On being in a group, Crook explained that he has had to learn humility. 

"You learn humility," he expressed. "It can't just be about you and you go from being a leader of many to a follower of few. It's a life experience. It's a great thing though. We're like a well oiled machine when we get together. We don't play...It's beautiful, man. It's been a great experience."

The video to the interview can be seen below.

    elevate it how? it's a figurative mountain of shit true but literally? Whining Joell might be a whale on the beach but his bloated belly and man tits ain't that high.

    Crooked I ssuuttx2 cob is the best along with slaughterhouse. I really hope people get the word out about these dudes they are truly talented & need to be pushed to the for front to show all of these lame acts that hip hop needs to be about lyrics & skills just as it's been for years. Not this kids bop music wack garbage that people be making out the wood work. Crooked I is that dude, too real & such a great MC.

    The haters prove that they made it.

    Man the tracklist and artwork better drop soon so we know it's defiantly dropping!

  • justin case

    Crooked I has been in the game since 98 and has not released 1 solo album. That's 14 years! Stop talking shit about what this album is going to do for hip hop and let the music speak for itself.

    • justin case

      @ Karol...typical groupie behaviour with your immature insult. I made a perfectly valid point. A guy who has struggled to put out albums his entire career is talking about this new album changing hip hop. That just sounds stupid. And I paid hard earned money to buy their first album so FOH with that hater shit.

    • Karel

      14 years, no album and still has a core fanbase and he's still young. Slaughterhouse might not sell as much as other rappers but they will be able to live of this shit for a long time. Stop hating, respect their grind you ignorant 14 year old asshole, i-lick-cum-face ass having motherfucker.

    Catch-22: If Slaughterhouse sold of 500k in the first week and still have a dope album haters say (Oh you see they sold out) they sell less than 50k but still have a dope album haters say (see we ride YMCMB MMG BBR dicks all day!) Either way it's gonna be a dope album

  • Shady 2.0

    I get why they hate... If YMCMB MMG BBR signed Slaughterhouse they would be all over their dicks saying "see you can't diss us now, we have real lyricists" y'all just jealous!

    "I already know what it's gonna be for Hip Hop. I'm not talking about Billboard charts. I'm talking about what it's gonna do for Hip Hop. It's gonna take Hip Hop to a whole 'nother level." You see that's what people/haters don't get! It's all about Hip Hop for these guys not selling there souls for good sales and I don't get how they get hate for that...

      Hip Hop has always been celebratory.

    • UES

      compared to other tracks they have released..its not their best. i had a poor choice of words. i hope they get whatever publicity they can.

    • Anonymous

      they still went lyrically in.

    • Anonymous

      The label (Eminem) aint forcing them to do anything, they just wanted to have fun and make a track that would get them publicity, and considering it is their biggest hit so far and the music video has only been around for a few days I'd say they somewhat accomplished it.

    • UES

      that track my life was a fail. i know it was the label that probably forced that track upon them, but it still sucked. i know they are better than that. looking forward to the rest of the album

  • welcome to: Our House

    I've noticed that people are REALLY scared by Slaughterhouse and look to hate whenever the opportunity arises.

    • You JOKE!

      What! and Weezy is lyrical???? WTF This is the last part of his verse from B.o.B's Strange Clouds: My nigga, all day, all night, half pipe I dive in that pussy, yeah I belly flop, I jackknife and shit And tell my homies that I say its a party Got that tech for technical difficulties Im top dog, you top ramen, Im top dog Piru, gangsters, outlaws

    • nasirjones

    crooked need to keep being solo and stop lyin to himself about the glory of this album its going to be a MAINSTREAM in the club and gun frontin type shit.they are seriously overrated for real

    • Anonymous

      They haven't been around long enough to be over rated you dumb ass. As soon as someone hears a popish beat by slaughterhouse they instantly don't listen to the lyrics. sad

  • Really???

    Lets be honest, nobody is checking for slaughterhouse. A group of neverwas that form like voltron to create one mediocre average rapper..meh!

    • Anonymous

      Joell has BREASTS, yes, otherwise using too many words (not even big or inventive words, just a lot of dull ones) in every verse, every garbage 'song' doesn't make you 'lyrical'... It means you don't know when the shut the fuck up.

    • Anonymous

      You're checking for them, that's enough.

    • Your an idiot

      You obviously just listen to the bullshit non lyrical, meaningless songs that are out there on the radio or made by Gucci man... Slaughterhouse is a lyrical beast machine. They have word play that your favorite "rapper" couldn't even possibly comprehend. Stop dumbing down your music and learn some shit from it. Scrub.

      as long as its an expert opinion compared to yours which doesnt even count. oh and tell dre to do his own beats and stop putting his name on everybody elses if you know him so well. please turnn your radio off and get a perspective first before you comment

    • UES

      just as dr dre says..heres another 'semi-super expert' who always tries to redefine hip hop from its infancy. you mention ditc and no fat joe.. you must have never heard fat joes first album. i like the hip hop artists you mentioned though. music production has evolved significantly in hip hop. that doesnt mean there arent wack producers out there like lex luger. but some people love lex. one mans garbage is another mans treasure.
