Crooked I, one quarter of Slaughterhouse, is asking why the supergroup hasn't been on the cover of XXL magazine yet. "I think you guys should do some real groundbreaking shit and put my group on the cover before our album comes out," Crooked said laughing. "Hey, I understand how it go. I know you gotta sell them units to grace the cover but I been on there twice without it so I know where there’s a will there’s a way." Slaughterhouse's debut is set to hit stores on August 11th, with their first single "Number One" coming soon.
In related news, hit producer The Alchemist recently talked about how much he respects Slaughterhouse. "Those guys are sick," he said in an interview. "That's like four
ballplayers all on the same team in the schoolyard who are all really
just tryina sh*t on each other — everyone's bangin' every time they
get the ball. It's a pretty dope synergy of four motherf*ckers who are
all nice. Crooked I, to me, has been getting better and better. He was
always good, but he wasn't fully on my radar till the last couple years
and it was like, 'Holy sh*t.' Oh No and myself have a project called
Gangrene, and I was like, 'Oh, man, if Crooked I gets on this fourth
verse he's really gonna bring it home.' It's on the album called Acts
of Violence. Big up to Royce, too. Big up to the whole Detroit."
