XXL Mag.com: Slaugherhouse's Weakest Link

Quote:Slaughterhouse’s Weakest Link
NEW Friday Jan 30 6:00 AM CST posted by xxl staff

I actually don’t think there’s a weakest link. Those guys are pretty much all monsters on the mic.

By now I’m sure most of you got a chance to watch Crooked I absolutely black out during a freesyle he apparently kicked during a Slaughterhouse recording session. The funny thing is Crook first played humble - citing Joe Budden, Royce Da 5′9″ and Joell Ortiz as the three nicest MCs ”from ‘08″ -then just totally spazzed.

But a weakest link? Not likely. Depending who you ask, they’ll probably name a different MC as their favorite. I’ve never been a big Joe Budden fan, but always respected his abilities. I can’t even front, though. I’ve been pretty impressed with Joey as of late. He did his thing on the “Move On” (Slaughterhouse Mix) and went in pretty hard on Saigon, pause on his behalf. As for the others, I’ve been checking their stuff out for some time now. Royce’s “Boom” is still a measuring stick for MCs if you ask me. I may be undecided on who Slaughterhouse’s finest is, but one thing I’ll say, is the others have yet to drop a “Boom.” That’s superior lyricism right there.

I’m not sure who’s idea it was to form Slaughterhouse, but he’s a genius. I don’t think it would have worked as well with another quartet. Prior to their union, all four MCs had a substantial presence online, but I can’t help but feel like the group has upped their individual profiles as well. Slaughterhouse is doing what the Four Horsemen: Canibus, Killa Priest, Ras Kass and Kurupt should have did back in the late 90s and early 2000s. Aside from that one track on Bis’ sophomore album, I don’t think they ever released anything. Slaughterhouse has been formed for just a few months and they already have several tracks leaked. Plus they stay in the studio. They really seem to be moving towards a project. That album is gonna be full of songs where they just try to out-rhyme each other. Then Joe will probably talk trash about how he got the best verse on Joe Budden TV. I’m not mad, though. That’s hip-hop. I just hope they don’t tease us with a few tracks and never come out with a full-length.-Jackpot

Make sure to peep our Slaughterhouse features next week.

I like Joey but I think his flow is pretty off, but he writes pretty good.

Joey is unique, you know what I mean? Sometimes his flow works perfectly and sometimes it's a miss. I think the emotion and lyrics make up for where the flow falls off at times. He's a good emcee though.

Yea, I feel him on all his Mood Musics, classics. I think I read somewhere that he smokes a pack of cigarettes a day.

Well put EFFeX.  Where the flow lacks, the lyrics make up.

I agree with the article, there is no weakest link in this group.
