Slaughterhouse is a hip hop supergroup consisting of rappers Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Royce da 5'9". They are currently signed to Shady Records.



The group formed in late 2008 after Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5'9", and Nino Bless appeared on the song "Slaughterhouse" from Joe Budden's album Halfway House. They decided to form a group, minus Nino Bless, and named the group after the song. The members of Slaughterhouse all share some degree of controversy from their past in the music industry. All four men address these issues in the Slaughterhouse song "Move On", informing any interviewers out there that their pasts are behind them and that questions pertaining to these events are not relevant.[1] A video for the song was released in March 2009.


Their self-titled debut album was released on August 11, 2009 on E1 Music. The album was reportedly recorded over a six day period in early June. The album features production from Focus,[2] The Alchemist, DJ Khalil, StreetRunner and Mr. Porter of D12.[3] On June 18, 2009, the first street single off the album was released via Joe Budden's Twitter. The track is "Woodstock Hood Hop" and features M.O.P. on the hook.[4][5] The first official single from the album will be "The One". A second video for the song Microphone has also been released in late 2009. A video directed by Rik Cordero has already been shot. "Woodstock Hood Hop" isn't on the final cut of the album due to sample clearance issues.

Their debut album sold 18,000 copies in its first week (Only 20,000 copies were shipped to stores).[6] As of September 5, 2009 the album has sold 31,000 copies.[7]

The group has planned their second album for a 2010 release,[8] tentatively named by Crooked I as No Muzzle.[9] In late 2009, Royce da 5'9" confirmed talks between the group and Shady Records,[10][11] stating that he felt their second album should be released on a major label.[12]

Recently, rumors of a Shady Records/Slaughterhouse signing have increased exponentially. In March, Joell Ortiz posted a rant on Twitter denigrating E1 Entertainment for blocking Shady negotiations, implying that another party was involved as well.[13] Responding to a disgruntled Amalgam Digital executive's allegations against him, Joe Budden confirmed that complications regarding E1 and Amalgam were the reason the deal had not been completed previously.[14] Royce da 5'9" would later name-drop Shady Records in a Bar Exam 3 freestyle,[15] and the group has just released a song entitled "Beamer, Benz or Bentley (Shady Megamix)".[16] Recently in an interview Royce da 5'9" revealed that the Shady deal should be completed within a week of April 28. Slaughterhouse, minus Joe Budden, were featured on the iTunes deluxe edition of Eminem's Recovery album on the track "Session One."

Plans to release an EP were revealed by in their Rap Release Dates update in June 2010, tentatively titled Slaughterhouse EP.[17] The EP was released on February 8, 2011, with four new tracks and two remixes of tracks previously released. On January 12 of 2011, it was confirmed that the group officially signed to Shady Records along with Yelawolf. Both acts appeared along with Eminem on the cover of XXL magazine's March 2011 edition.[18]
