Slaughterhouse - Fight Club
In DJ Z‘s exclusive interview with Royce Da 5’9” earlier this week, the Detroit emcee made a few, well, controversial comments on his Slaughterhouse brethren, notably stating that his only serious rival in the group was Crooked I. With all the competition going on among the foursome, the title of this brand new, unreleased cut (recorded Tuesday night) seems fitting. Fight Club finds Royce, Crook, Ortiz, and Budden taking the gloves off for an all-out verbal brawl, backed by a pumped-up, piano and cymbal-heavy instrumental by Rockville Centre’s Frequency. With all four emcees firing off their most potent lyrical ammunition, I certainly can’t pick a favorite, though Crook’s contribution, which references the emcee’s close call in last Friday’s shooting incident, would be high on my list. As always, I’ll leave it it to Booth reviewers to decide who came out on top and who got slaughtered.
