Widely acclaimed as individual artists, Slaughterhouse formed in late 2008 after Crooked I from Long Beach, CA, Joell Ortiz from Brooklyn, NY and Royce da 5’9” from Detroit appeared on “Slaughterhouse” on the Halfway House album from Harlem-born, New Jersey-raised Joe Budden. They then named the collective after the song.
Known for being brash and outspoken, last year Slaughterhouse issued a self-titled EP and brought their West Coast meets East Coast and Detroit sound to “Loud Noises,” from gold-certified, #1-charting Hell: The Sequel from Bad Meets Evil, a collaboration between Royce and Eminem. This wasn’t the first time the group collaborated with Eminem, they also contributed to “Session One,” a bonus track on Eminem’s Recovery.
