Slaughterhouse - The One

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
DJ Khalil
Album:
Slaughterhouse

Since Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9”, Crooked I, and Joell Ortiz first formed Slaughterhouse, heads across the ‘net have been locking horns over whether or not the lyrical bruisers could (or should) translate their underground sensibilities into mainstream success.  Now, with the release of the lead single off their forthcoming debut, the moment of truth is here.  Is this record The One that will transform the group from buzz to hitmakers?  Well, that’s for the listening public to decide—I will say, however, that it’s one of the most concerted efforts at crossover success I’ve heard in quite a while.  Featuring a crunchy, DJ Khalil-produced beat reminiscent of Lenny Kravitz’ ‘98 hit Fly Away and a catchy female hook, the record reaches out to several demographics.  The group’s trademark two-fisted rhymes are, thankfully, present and accounted for—provided you’re not put off by the relentless torrent of namedrops, there are countless lyrical gems to be found.  While it remains to be seen whether The One will hook the mainstream, Slaughterhouse’s self-titled LP is sure to please the early adopters when it drops this August off E1.  In the meantime, stay tuned for DJ Z‘s exclusive, behind the scenes video interview with the group, premiering later this week.
