New Music: Slaughterhouse – ‘The Illest’

Slaughterhouse sends out a warning on their dangerous new cut “The Illest,” a hard-hitting street record that samples Pudgee and the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Think Big.” The Shady Records signees—Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, and Royce da 5’9”—take turns flaunting their lyrical dexterity over The Klassics production. And after getting Rihanna’s attention with his BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher, Royce may be getting a call from Nick Cannon once he hears his bars: “When I’m done roaming this Earth, bury my bones in Mariah Carey’s box.”
