Crooked I Thinks Slaughterhouse Should Be On The Cover Of XXL

Crooked I, one quarter of lyrical super group Slaughterhouse has some sound advice for XXL. In a recent interview with, the Long Beach rapper shared his thoughts.

“I think you guys should do some real groundbreaking shit and put my group on the cover before our album comes out,” Crooked said laughing. “Hey, I understand how it go. I know you gotta sell them units to grace the cover but I been on there twice without it so I know where there’s a will there’s a way.”

The punchline king was on the 2007 freshman cover, along with his Slaughterhouse rap partner Joell Ortiz, as well as the cover with former Death Row boss Suge Knight and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez in ‘02.

As XXL previously reported, Slaughterhouse’s debut is set to hit shelves on August 11, with their first single “Number One” coming much sooner. In fact Crooked said the video for the song may come as soon as next week.

Three weeks before the group album drops, Crooked will be releasing his digital-only solo EP, Pig Face Weapon Waist. “It’s a spin off of my Slaughterhouse alter ego,” he said of the odd title, “cause I come out on stage with a pig mask and a Dickie suit on.”

“It’s just a digital release to warm everybody up for the big boys, for the Slaughterhouse joint,” he added. –Max G with reporting by Carl Chery
