The four super lyrical beasts are back, Slaughterhouse with a new mixtape called "House Rules". This mixtape is a musical appetizer for their up coming album being released in June. In a era of hip-hop where rap groups are rarely seen, Slaughterhouse continues to shine bringing that pure hip hop of great lyrics with witty metaphors which will have you pressing the repeat button. For those who may not know the Slaughterhouse group is composed of four members: Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, Royce Da 5'9 and Crooker I. The mixtape is 10 songs long, which is perfect because me personally I don't like mixtapes with over 15 songs. The production is dope, I feel like they blessed the fans with a free album. If you are truly a fan of the true essence of hip hop you will love this mixtape. Its hot beats and lyrics. To be honest with you, I like Slaughterhouse as group but I don't like them as solo artists as much. I think their movement is needed in this era of Pop-Hop. Real hip hop nowadays takes a back seat when it comes to the radio, it's more about selling a brand for corporations. Let me get into my favorite songs off the mixtape: "Keep it 100" produced by AraabMuzik, "SayDatThen" produced by Nottz, "I Don't Know" produced by Harry Fraud, "Life in the City" produced by Heatmakerz. Overall, this is a hot mixtape with album quality songs. You will be missing out if you don't download this mixtape, your ears will be greatly satisfied.
