Slaughterhouse Sets August 28 Release Date For welcome to: Our House Album

After a few pushbacks, fans can finally expect Slaughterhouse’s Shady Records/Interscope debut, welcome to: Our House to arrive later this summer.

Set to drop on August 28, the Eminem-produced album will find Joell Ortiz, Crooked I, Joe Budden and Royce Da 5’9″ delivering their first group album since their self-titled 2009 debut. Already loaded with big name features from Swizz Beatz, Cee-Lo (“My Life”) and Eminem, the project is expected to fill the bill especially now with the latter working extremely hands-on with the rap group’s Shady Records debut.

In fact, during an interview with XXL earlier this year Crooked I explained Em’s involvement on his four-man contingent album saying, “Em is putting in incredible effort with this album.”

“He’s arranging, he’s being featured on songs, he’s producing. He’s putting in just as much, if not more work, than everyone else as far as Slaughterhouse. If he’s not featured on it he produced it, if he didn’t produce it he arranged it, if he didn’t arrange it…when it’s all said and done, his presence is going to be felt throughout.”

The West Coast rapper, who’s been on three major labels before the Shady/Interscope deal, felt really moved by Em’s diligence with the album. “He’s putting in just as much work in as we are and I salute that all the way because he doesn’t have to obviously,” Crook said. “Sometimes when you get with a major, dog, the people who sign you, you take a picture with him, shake his hand, they publish it in a magazine and you never see the muthafucka again. I feel like we’re bringing some of that raw MC energy that a real MC feeds off of in the first place. It’s just a beautiful situation. I thank God for this situation.”

Slaughterhouse’s next single off the welcome to: Our House album will be “Throw It Away” featuring Swizz Beatz and produced by Mr. Porter. The track will arrive straight on iTunes this Monday (July 2).—Ralph Bristout

    I’m hoping this shit doesn’t get pushed back again. Especially since it was supposed to be dropped back in May, but I guess you can’t rush perfection.


    They are pushing it back from what I gather because it is a closely guarded project and Em is doing everything he can to prevent leaks, even goin as far as not lettin the members even have copies of it yet.Im definitely pickin this up Hammer dance was really good and my life was decent and if its anything like Hammer Dance and there past work this will be a classic album in my opinion. A much needed breath of fresh air after all the years of garbage rappers we have had to put up with lately like Minimal Music Garbage and Ass Money/dumb money.

    Dude you are ignorant. The triangle has the words Unity, Recovery, and Service around it. I think you need to do some research before you start spewing about shit you know nothing about. Oh and the internet is not a good place to get your information. AA is not a cult it is a spiritual program based on spiritual principles. Something you probably know nothing about.

    ignorant is right, its an AA medallion that is given at diff times of soberness and meeting attendance, has nothing to do with the illuminati, your hateful and homophopbic, there are no more “ghey” ppl in the world as a percentage than any other time in history, its just that ppl are less ignorant(not you) and ppl feel safe from violence hatred and prejudice, dont hate, appreciate, PEACE X
