For those who don’t know, Slaughterhouse’s Shady Records debut album – welcome to: OUR HOUSE recently leaked online and has sparked an array of reactions amongst fans.
I’m sure there’s many people out there who hadn’t heard, or wouldn’t have heard of Slaughterhouse if not solely for their involvement with Eminem and their signing to Shady Records. So, for those of you who were waiting to hear Em’s contributions on this release, here you go…
In order of appearance on the album then:
1. Slaughterhouse feat. Eminem and Skylar Grey – Our House
2. Slaughterhouse feat. Eminem – Throw That
3. Slaughterhouse feat. Eminem – Asylum
Eminem executive produced this album and co-produced most of the tracks on it, he very much oversaw the whole thing in the same way that Dre did Em’s early albums.
The reason I am emphasizing Em’s involvement with this album as apposed to offering a straight-up appraisal or criticism of the album itself, or commenting too broadly on Slaughterhouse as a whole is obviously because, this is an Eminem blog; which isn’t to say all posts here will be void of views on some hip-hop in general, but if I start venturing too broadly, it may as well be a generic hip-hop blog.
What did you think of Em’s production, mixing, hooks, verse; and the album as a whole?
