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 XXLMag.com, 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

    They are not going to putt 3 corn balls on the cover! Only nigga that I fuck with is Ortiz, the other 3 are weirdos. Extra cornball types.

    • freddy

      sluaghterhouse are the truth,xxl please put s.h on the cover coz it would show you still promote real traditional hip hop! n they all will gather attention from different parts of the staes which may be good for the sales. sh fans are more dedicated to purchasing sh products becuase they do not get radio play but still have so many fans

  • vhingrhamesonyo’momma

    sorry crook you would need a respectable media outlet that respects real hip-hop for that to happen. try rhyming more about kilo’s and dancing then we’ll talk. !!SHOTS FIRED!!..!!MAG DOWN!!..!!MAG DOWN!!

    • *BLOCK*

      SHOTS FIRED!!..!!MAG DOWN!!..!!MAG DOWN!!<—-funny shit

  • $ykotic

    I don’t see why not. We had the Cotton Gin cover(shouts to Ron Mex). Why not?

    These dudes get 5 stars on every single song they’ve dropped on the ‘net.

    Get them VIBE custies XXL!

    BY THE WAY, WAS THAT SOUTH COVER BENEFICIAL XXL? HOW MANY DID U SELL? INTERESTING CONVERSATION…

    • Pierzy

      I would buy 3 copies…so, with that said, they probably won’t do it.

      Overheard in ‘Tha Office’:

      “Um…we like Slaughterhouse but Drake had a photo shoot with Vanity Fair yesterday that we MUST cover. Plus, Asher Roth just performed in front of 14 people in Alabama so maybe we should put the two of them on the cover like a new-school Ebony & Ivory. What do you think?”

      “Great idea! Let’s do it!”

      UGH.

      • $ykotic

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

        But I think Vanessa has some surprises for us…

    • Pierzy

      I also find it funny that he was on the “Freshmen” cover FIVE YEARS after he was on the cover the first time. I’m not saying it wasn’t justified because he hadn’t released an album, it’s just amusing…

      • http://bones_42@hotmail.com Doobie42

        Thats because they had to go from 10 new niggas to 10 unheard of niggas to put on the cover. these new niggas for the MOST part can’t cut it.

  • Nate

    No but XXL will put OJ the juiceman, and other unproven cats on there forever. At least the new issue was better than the last.

    Anybody who has heard this group and who listens to their album won’t be able to say they are weak. Real Hip-Hop! These guys will outrap most except for the likes of Locksmith and Mistah F.A.B. but they are also from the west and put in work from the underground so you guys won’t have them on would ya??

    It’s only ringtone/radio/all the time for you guys. Preeteens somehow drinkin patron up in the VIP of the club screaming Yeeeaaahhh, oh yeaahh, un-huh and all that other profound shit. Right now putting Slaughterhouse would be a better look than G-Unit or Pimp Squad Click, right guys??

  • http://www.ronmexicocity.com Ron Mexico

    how about the cover of dallas penn’s blog?

    hiyooooooo! no mcmahon.

    • EReal

      LMAO!

      Dallas has Slaughterhouse pajamas.

      Onesies.

  • General

    I think a lot of people on here have been saying the same thing as Crooked…shows you how much that XXL actually pays attention to the commentors on this site, LOL.

  • Real Talk

    They should, but they wont.

  • Jhon da Analyst

    Vanessa put those cats on the cover. Why not? Do something that these other mags aren’t doing. Ya dig?

  • HERM

    Put ‘em on!

  • D Sizzo

    xxl you should put them on the cover there like the modern day nwa except they got rappers from east coast, midwest, and westcoast its like a nationwide group of the hardest spitters out. i think if you dont do the cover people would be mad dissapointed cause these 4 guys are legit

  • Jay Z’s Headache, Lil Waynes Migraine

    C’mon XXL, Do it for Hip Hop.

  • gospher

    why the fuck not put them on? you tell me a group whos doing more shit right now other that 4 people all coming out with digital cd’s n shit
    why the fuck not have you listen to thiese niggas rhyme they go off. with a special sauce of there on

    this is the best thing that happen to hip hop in a while I mean fuck look at the damn mainstream nothing but a bunch of dick ryders doing the same damn shit tak about the same shit
    switch the fuck up.

    these 4 guys are legit no doubt

  • http://XXLmag.com PerfectPoints357

    If they put them cats on the cover they gonna have to make Buddens put his hands in his pockets. Whats up with dudes thumbs shit must have got to him folks talkin bout that shit now he wearin band aides on them. Not hatin jus wonderin what the deal is. Its good to see Royce finally gettin a lil shine it but why he gotta do it on the coat tails of others first it was Shady now its Slaughter House whats the deal?

  • HipHopExtremist

    This would def be a good look for XXL & hip hop. I’d actually by a copy. Something I haven’t done for a few years.

  • Glacier

    Put Tahiry on the cover….she is the best thing about Slaughterhouse. They are wick, wick, WACK!

  • Glacier

    Tahiry on the cover…Yes! Slaughterhouse…No!

    • Glacier

      Wait, I take what I said back. I just downloaded a couple Slaughterhouse songs and I must say they are amazing. I can’t believe I was sleeping on them so much.

      Cmon XXL. Put them on the cover!!!

      • DetroitDraper

        Lmao slaughterhouse won u over in 20 minutes

  • stefan urkel

    GREAT IDEA…SH best group since the WUUUUUUUUUUU……..if you say otherwise, you probably like lil wayne…

  • Real Talk

    People that hate Slaughterhouse dont like rap. They like basic-ABC-nursery rhymes over hot beats.

  • El Tico Loco

    Slaughterhouse is what’s poppin but I think they gonna go with Drake, I just know. SMH

  • Cool Steph

    Yo have you guys heard Def Jam’s new artist Mr. Finley yet… dude sounds like he’s the truth and he’s from Vegas.

    Check out his video intro:

    POINT BLANK. Slaughterhouse wont grace the cover until 2010 for the Annual Love/Hate issue. Remember I called it. Sorry, P.

  • brand-new

    every member of slaughterhouse has paid their dues, why not put them on???

  • http://www.myspace.com/emcdlthemusicprofile EmCDL

    XXL should do it….by the powers of the COMMISSION! Whos with me dammit!?!

    • $ykotic

      Count me in.

      The more I see this thread the more I feel like nessness138 has something to do with this…

    • El Tico Loco

      Man ya’ll already know who’s gonna get the cover and that person does not have an album yet either, but I would rather have SL on the cover if the Commision ran XXL last month’s cover woulda never happened. Ya’ll don’t have it as bad as I do those are my local artists.

  • mazemayhim

    Why ya’ll actin like MJ didn’t just die last week. If anything, Michael Jackson will grace the next XXL cover. “…hip hop don’t respect less u platinum or dead…”

    • $ykotic

      Naw he deserves a special commemorative issue. Not thrown in with the rest. THAT would be faulty.

      By the way that rap battle is going on!!! Y’all remember! Heartpurple’s holding it down over there(waiting for Grand$ to come back LOL!)! A new cat Impeccable is going in…

        It is what it is. That shit happened when me & yawka first started going @ it, too.

        Hell, I can’t even post anymore on the Drake video thread today. Fucking XXL. Plus that battle was awhile ago. Purp started coming with the heat, then the goddamned site turned on me……

  • BeerGangsta

    Man they is giving SlaughterHouse a lot of props lately. I don’t know nothing about these cats. I will get this on a Mixedtape. Saigon killed Joe Budden on the Mic. Joe squash beef in a hurry! LOL

  • Emperor Doom

    I don’t know why not. Royce is nicer than a WHOLE LOT of people that have already been on the cover. I think the only reason they shouldn’t is because of perennial loser Joe Budden. I really don’t understand why people fuck with him. He’s NOT good.

  • http://-- gaddic

    iF WEAK rappers like Soulja Boy are on the cover
    why shouldn’t a talented lyrical group like Slaughterhouse be on the cover
    XXl mag has in my opinion fallen off and they’ll keep falling if the keep on supporting ringtone and over-commercialized auto-tune stupid talent-less rapcats like Soulja boy and company

    their music review department keeps getting more and more inconsistent
    they’re choice of cover MC’s are even worse

    not hating but this mag needs to dick-ride and glorify the real vets more and the talented lyricists in the game alot more

  • B..

    @Trenton Watts

    You dont know what you’re talkin about, so keep it movin.

    @XXL

    I havent bought an XXL magazine in about 8 or 9 years. If yall put them on the cover, I’ll buy it. I thought the magazine was for the love of hip hop, I mean I could be wrong. Yall had all type of corny rappers on that cover includin like gucci mane and shawty lo ???? Yall gotta put them on the cover for respect of the craft. I mean cmon, they formed the group and soon after were announced to be on the “rock the bells tour” alongside emcees with major credentials. Each one of em has their own separate contributions. Royce with his “Bar Exam 1 and 2″, Joell with his “Covers the Classics”, Budden with his “Mood Muzik’s” and Crooked with his 52-54 week of SLAUGHTER. Who else does 52 weeks of str8 lyrics over dope beat selection. So I think yall should respect the man’s wishes. Thats it thats all

  • Thomas

    I’d buy a copy and frame it! Slaughterhouse is exactly what we need for hiphop and the exposure would be great. These 4 emcees have paid their dues and i think they deserve some shine on the best hip hop mag on the planet

  • LCD

    I think it’s safe to say many, many readers want to see this

  • Fheze

    Think about it,XXl and Slaughterhouse get a win.No one can lose.And these dudes are fire.You can burn OJ and Gucci and they still won’t be as hot.Good look everyone.And good one *Block* haha

    XXL PLEASE PUT SLAUGHTERHOUSE ON THE COVER FOR THE SAKE OF HIPHOP

    SLAUGHTERHOUSE IS A MACHINE THATS ABOUT TO TAKE OVER

    XXL SUPPORT THE REAL PLEASE AND THANK YOU

  • Shawty J

    If Gucci, OJ, Shawty, and Soulja Boy can grace a XXL cover so can Slaughterhouse. I definitely agree with Crooked I.

  • Hostyle

    Do it! Put real hip hop on the cover!

  • Priortys First

    definately should put into consideration!!!!

  • Q! Tha Magnificent!

    not yeah .. but HELL YEAH!! fawk “XXL” if they can’t put these dudes on the cover! they can put all the ABC rapping, no talent having style taking, homo-ass rappers on there before Slaughterhouse! Why not put real hip-hop niggas on the cover of a real hip-hop magazine! stop bullsh*tting XXL!

  • Catalyst

    Slaughterhouse is the best thing thats happened to rap in years. Nobody matches there lyrical ability. Thats why they wont make the cover. Buyers dont listen to lyrics and lyrical patterns. Honestly if you can put Gucci Mane on a XXL Cover you might as well put the dude that works at Burger King on there. Both probably consist of the same skill.

  • Real Talk

    XXL we know you already made up your mind, stop fuckin wit us, you know you puttin Drake on the cover. If I was CEO I’d get a cover shoot of Drake AND Slaughterhouse, the two biggest stories in hiphop right now, who knows, you might end up wit their crews gettin in a scuffle and u got an exclusive and shit.

  • http://www.myspace.com/gqnaija Darq

    ABOUT FREAKIN’ TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I mean…what the freak were Soulja Boi and them other lame fucks doing on an XXL cover????

    I would not touch that with a ten-foot pole. And i would honestly like to know how that issue did anyway!!!

    But for real…put Slaughterhouse on the cover. They deserve it..especially after the way you guys support them and all…

    Done!

  • Knowledgeable

    I understand that the magazine needs to sell issues in order to survive, and putting the commercially untested Slaughterhouse on the cover would be very risky for the magazine’s business.

    That said, you gotta put Slaughterhouse on the cover anyway. The mission of this publication is not just to sell copies, but to promote hip-hop culture. You have done a lot of the former, but now it’s time for you to do something that embodies the latter.

    Putting Slaughterhouse on the cover would be a huge win for hip-hop culture. It will show that people still care about the art of hip-hop and not just making money.

  • Just to be different

    Put them on the cover! If any group needs more exposure, it’s Slaughterhouse. Take a leaf out of Luda’s book of rhymes, and do it for hip hop.

    Funny biz iz, the super internet gangstas who pop on and say “first” on everything to feel like they fit in all showed up first and said that “Slaughterhouse is full of corn balls” xxl better not put them on the cover, but everyone else on here is like “hell ya do it for hip-hop”. They should be on the cover. Slaughterhouse will give us some real biz to listen to and they are far from being cornballs. Tell you what, i am Slaughterhouse as is most people whom like real music. I would love to shiv these nerdy ass xxl fanatics between their 3rd and 4th rib. Do us all a favor and kill yourselves.
