Crooked I, who says that Slaughterhouse is in the fourth quarter of creating its new album, recently spoke with HipHopDX about the new project and how he hopes its yet-to-be-determined title is indicative of the music the group is making.
“We ain’t got no title,” Crooked I says of the release. “I hope we have the vote on what the title’s gon’ be. And if I get my way, you could believe it’s gon’ be some aggressive shit that Best Buy don’t even want to fucking put on the shelf. I’m looking to get a letter from iTunes and shit, just saying, ‘Uh, guys, we really love the music, but we can’t use this fucking title.’ I mean I just want the shit to be so blunt and so in your fucking face because I think that’s where we need to continue to trail-blaze. That’s where music needs to go because the music on the album that we’re creating thus far is really dope.
“It’s a lot of edgy shit,” Crooked I says. “It’s a lot of rebellious shit and then there’s a lot of emotional shit that you know, you might have gotten out of the song ‘Goodbye,’ or you might have gotten out of the song ‘Move On.’ You’re getting that times ten on this so I can’t wait. I can’t wait for it to drop man.”
Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden and Royce Da 5’9 are slated to go on tour as Slaughterhouse in March 2014. The group released a promotional video for its run recently, one that includes the “Glass House Tour” dates. That video can be viewed below.
