Joell Ortiz & KXNG Crooked to Break Down the ‘Rise & Fall of Slaughterhouse’ On New Album

Written by on February 24, 2022

Joell Ortiz and KXNG Crooked bought one thing to say.

After teaming up in 2020 for his or her H.A.R.D. venture, the Brooklyn-to-Lengthy Seaside connection continues with the duo trying to get some issues off their chest with a follow-up album known as The Rise and Fall of Slaughterhouse.

Wait… what?! Oh, yeah, we’re right here for it.

Though it’s been eight years since Slaughterhouse launched a venture collectively, it hasn’t stopped followers from questioning what precisely occurred to probably the most formidable rap teams in trendy historical past. And whereas every member has gone on to succeed via varied avenues, the truth that we’ll in all probability by no means get to listen to Glass Home (the group’s third album that by no means noticed the sunshine of day) or that new music from the 4 won’t ever occur once more is sort of unlucky.

What’s performed is finished, although. And with the discharge of The Rise and Fall of Slaughterhouse on the horizon, Joell and Criminal waste no time moving into it with the album’s first single, “Emptiness.”

“Rattling, the place did time go/ Slaughterhouse been aside like 9 yo,” Joell raps. “You requested why although, I want I had them solutions however I don’t/ Simply know that image they’ll by no means resume/ Emails, cellphone, calls and zoom/ Nonetheless not sufficient to get us all in a room/ Royce mentioned he ain’t doing the three man with out Joe/ However Joe mentioned he retired so how the hell is meant to go/ I seemed within the eyes of Crooked I and mentioned one final time he mentioned let’s go/ So this one’s for the followers and anybody else who desires to know/ Why one of the best group ever/ Turned out to be among the best teams that by no means/ Bought again to the solar after the Shady period/ Shit, Paul wasn’t on his greatest habits/ And Joe’s feedback about Em left no revival for main endeavors.”

Press play on the official music video for “Emptiness” under and be looking out for extra data relating to the album.

Oh, and simply because Slaughterhouse is not any extra, that didn’t cease three of the members from staying busy. For the reason that cut up, Royce 5’9 went on what’s arguably one of the best run of his profession along with his Layers, E book of Ryan and The Allegory campaigns, Joell didn’t lose a step as he dropped a handful of tasks of his personal (“Home Slippers, HUMAN, Mona Lisa and Monday/ H.A.R.D, Gorilla Glue, yo Fred will chortle once more sooner or later”) and Criminal remained sharp as he’s at all times been with tasks like Statik KXNG (with Statik Selektah) and his Good vs Evil set.
