Hoping to release their sophomore set on Shady before the year’s end, Slaughterhouse plans to crank out two solo projects and a group EP by April, in an effort to liberate themselves their contractual shackles. In addition, The Pack’s Lil B is celebrating the January birth of his Amalgam Digital lovechild, as Ja Rule races against the clock to put out an album before his surrender, and Brotha Lynch Hung and Kool G Rap put April in a cobra clutch with their Respect garnering Strangle-hold.
