Slaughterhouse - Microphone

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
Alchemist
Album:
Slaughterhouse

If it weren’t for the Microphone, there would be no hip-hop—without them, live shows wouldn’t be the same, and recording would be, well, impossible. As evidenced by this new cut off their forthcoming full-length, Slaughterhouse are well aware of the mic’s importance.  The lyrical supergroup aren’t quite encouraging their proliferation, though—actually, Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, and Royce Da 5’9” spend most of the track advocating for restricting said devices to those who actually know how to use them. The beat, a thin, minor-key piano arpeggio with sparse bass, comes courtesy of The Alchemist; it should sound quite familiar if you’re a fan of Tim Westwood’s BBC Radio program, as it was recently used by Eminem for a freestyle on the show. If you dig this hard-hitting track, be sure to pick up their collective debut album (due out 8/11), because there are currently no plans to promote the record as an official single.
