The latest signing to Shady Records / Interscope, super group Slaughterhouse, consisting of Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5' 9", Joe Budden and Crooked I arrive in the UK for a three date tour. Their second album Welcome To: Our House, released in mid-June is executive produced by the Shady man himself, Eminem.
Brash and outspoken, bringing together the East Coast, West Coast and Detroit in the middle, Slaughterhouse issued a self-titled EP last year and was featured on Loud Noises on the gold-certified, number 1-charting Billboard album Hell: The Sequel from Bad Meets Evil, the collaboration between Royce and Eminem. During the past year, the quartet has also been featured with Ludacris, Yelawolf, Travis Barker and T.I., among others.
Slaughterhouse was previously heard on Session One, a bonus track on Eminem's 2010 blockbuster Recovery album, following their debut, indie-issued album in 2009. Widely acclaimed as individual artists, the group formed in late 2008 after Crooked I from Long Beach, CA, Joell Ortiz from Brooklyn, NY and Royce da 5'9" from Detroit appeared on Slaughterhouse on the Halfway House album from Harlem-born, N Jersey-raised Joe Budden.
The London show features support from Smiler, with hosting from the MysDiggi man Mystro and Hip Hop’s finest DJ 279 (Choice FM) on the decks.
