With fans already in high anticipation for the next album, Slaughterhouse makes an announcement that will perhaps hold them over.
For those who don't know, hip-hop super group Slaughterhouse is composed of lyrical powerhouses Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz and Royce da 5'9" Wednesday, April 30 the group not only announced an intermittent mixtape, "Real House" that would be released sometime the following week.
It's been almost two years since the Shady Records-signed collective have released a project, that being 2012's "Welcome To Our House" which was well-received, even for a time, holding the peak No. 1 position on Billboard's Top Rap Albums and Top R&B Albums charts. News of the mixtape that will proceed the new album, tentatively titled "Glass House," was announced via the group's Twitter page.
Along with the announcement, artwork for "Real House" was revealed. This was done by each fourth of the group changing their Twitter profile picture to the album art, the album art being an eerie, black and white, disfigured pig's head. Shortly after this, Datpiff's executive Vice President Kyle Reilly confirmed that the mixtape was not a hoax or rumor and that the mixtape was indeed being sponsored and powered by Datpiff. However, that tweet has since been removed by Reilly. Hopefully the project is still going to be released as planned since the group nor any Datpiff representatives have said otherwise.
The fans and the hip-hop community in general seem to be eager for the release and hopefully it will make up for Slaughterhouse's tour dates being pushed back .
