To the Slaughter

Slaughterhouse started as a rap battle between Joe Budden and Royce da 5’9”. From there a respect grew, and along with Crooked I and Joell Ortiz they appeared on Budden’s 2008 album Halfway House. The track, ‘Slaughterhouse’, became the group, and they would release a self-titled album independently in 2009.
The noise surrounding the outfit was enough to catch the ear of Eminem, who signed them to Shady Records and provided most of the production on the band’s second album, welcome to: OUR HOUSE. Eminem also appeared on the album, as did Cee Lo Green, Busta Rhymes and Skylar Grey. This tour will feature the skills of Crooked I and Ortiz. The Barwon Club, Geelong – October 28.
