Last week when Slaughterhouse premiered this song at Shade 45, you can tell that this was a record that hit particularly close to home with each MC. Joe Budden turned his chair around and avoided eye contact as this song came on and Crooked I was a little misty eyed, and with good reason. “Goodbye,” is a conceptual record on Slaughterhouse’s new Welcome To: OUR HOUSE record in which each of the members talk about painful times in their life when they had to say goodbye to a loved one.
Budden speaks about his lost children, Crooked I talks about his uncle, and Joell Ortiz speaks on his Nana. Tough stuff to listen to especially with rappers as lyrically dense as Slaughterhouse. Hit the jump to get a listen.
