(AllHipHop News) As the Top 10 lists of best rappers, songs and albums were released by various media sources at the end of last year, Crooked I of Slaughterhouse took offense to the group being left off of some of the lists.
While the group received the Shady Records co-sign, and toured all over the world, Crooked I spoke with AllHipHop at SXSW about how the group is “coming for blood” and still fighting for respect.
“We went to Australia, it was a beautiful country, that was my first time there, it was gorgeous dog, just the country was impressive, the energy in the crowd was just bananas. We probably gonna start on the next album in a month or two, you know what I mean, and this time we’re coming for blood man,” Crooked I explained to AllHipHop.com.
“I’m speaking for Crooked I and I’m not speaking for the group, but I think that ni**as kind of light weight went to sleep on the last album. When they did the hottest MC’s list and best song of 2012 I didn’t really see Slaughterhouse on that list man. We rap our heart out man so for this next album, I’m coming out with that butcher knife,” Crooked I said.
According to Neilsen SoundScan, Slaughterhouse’s second studio album Welcome to: Our House debuted at number 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums with 52,000 records sold.
