With their sophomore album welcome to: Our House dropping in stores tomorrow (7/28), rap super group Slaughterhouse says that fans can expect “quality Hip-Hop” during an interview with the Rap Up. Although some critics have questioned the group’s ability songwriting abilities, Crooked I refuted the naysayers jokingly saying, “Nah, I mean just quality Hip-Hop–bars. Songs that have structures and hooks actually, because you know people like to ask if our songs have hook on them, he said, adding, “I don’t know why they think we just get in the booth and do about 80 bars.”
Royce da 5’9 agreed, saying that they purposely left their songs amorphous on their recently release mixtape, On The House, to appease to their core audience but are highly capable of structuring songs which will be exemplified by their latest project.
“The album is what people say we couldn’t do. That’s exactly what it is. We just put out a mixtape full of us just rapping not caring about song structure with our core fans we would believe want to hear, but the album is basically what they naysayers say we can’t do,” he said.
