Pharoahe Monch and Novel will be the only guests featured on Slaughterhouse’s self-titled debut album.
The LP—starring group members Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5’9” and Crooked I—will feature sung hooks from Pharoahe and Novel, on two separate tracks. The M.O.P.-featured buzz single, “Woodstock (Hood Hop),” will not be included on the album.
Producers include Emile, Streetrunner, Focus and DJ Khalil, who produced the album’s most recent leak, “Cuckoo.” [Listen Here]
In a recent interview with XXLMag.com, Royce spoke on the group’s songwriting on the album. “We stayed true to what we’re known for, but ended up with records that I think radio will fuck with,” Royce said. “All four of us can make records, so when we get together, what do you think we gon’ do?”
“It’s definitely not going to just be us kicking verses back to back to back for a whole album” the Detroit MC continued. “It’s going to be bigger than people see.”
Slaughterhouse is currently on the road, touring on the Rock the Bells concert with Nas and Damian Marley, Common, Big Boi of Outkast, Raekwon, RZA, and The Roots, among others.
Slaughterhouse drops on August 11, on E1 Entertainment. –John Kennedy
