Hollow Da Don Says Slaughterhouse Emcees Would Lose Against URL Battlers

"I used to switch up who I thought was the best," Hollow Da Don says of Slaughterhouse. "Joe Budden came in last most of the time."

Speaking with VladTV about Battle Rap in general and his planned match-up against Joe Budden more specifically, Hollow Da Don said he goes back and forth about who he thinks is the best emcee in Slaughterhouse.

“The crazy thing about Slaughterhouse, when they first got together and shit for their first album, that’s how I knew they were wild nice,” he said. “I used to switch up who I thought was the best. Damn, I don’t wanna say this ‘cause it gon’ seem like I’m saying this ‘cause I’m battling him. But Joe Budden came in last most of the time. He just ain’t flip his shit up sometimes on certain records how they was flipping their shit up. At one point, I thought Joe Budden was the best still. At first it was Royce, I was like, ‘Oh, Royce is the best.’ Then I was like, ‘Nah, Crooked I the best.’ Then I was like, ‘Joell’s the best.’ Then I was like, ‘Joe’s the best.’ Honestly, in a battle, I think who would fare the best is probably—it’s hard to say ‘cause all them niggas is nice, son.”

During the interview, Hollow also detailed his opinion on who would win in a card pitting Slaughterhouse emcees against URL battlers. While he agrees with Norbes that the Slaughterhouse emcees would fall short, he also gave some alternative match-ups while speaking with VladTV.

“Like Norbes said though, I don’t think nobody would win on their side," he said. "I think somebody would win a round. I think it would be a close battle. I don’t know. It depends on who you put against who. I think Crooked I against Ill Will, I don’t know. It depends on the matchups honestly.”

    Craig g vs Superatural comes to mind. Craig g tore Supernat a new one and this is the dude with the weakest verse on The Symphony against the illest battle rapper of that time, so he can't really use Joe Budden's SH verses to gage his chances to win. So history is on Joe's side. Can't bring up Canibus L because he was way past his prime to compare the situation.

    I don't know what he is smoking but I could sure use some of it Slaughterhouse would wipe the mat with any of those battle dudes.

    I AGREE...as a fan of and the battle rap circuit...the Battle rappers would win... Battle Rapping is performance based...its about showmanship and winning the crowd... Songwriting (including Battle Songs) is a different skill Battle Rappers would win performances SlaughterHouse would win if it were about battle SONGS (that's why NONE the battle MCs have SUCCESSFUL music careers)

    I don't care what this Guys says Joe Budden is the Best one out that Crew Easily and I think Most people would agree. Royce is the worst.

      Royce went gold. Budden went wood.

      joe budden good with that deep introspective shit, brings a few good punchlines here and there, Royce got them punchlines and at times is really technically ill, crooked i = master technician and dope word play, joell brings good word play and he's good with them multi's too. For me its extremely hard to say who's better than who, at times one outshines the other, other times they are equally dope just my opinion. they are the illest spitters out now ( not bringing their ability to make music into the topic) IN MY OPINION.

    Anyone who says the term wild nice deserves to languish in the underground.
