HIP HOP SUPERGROUP SLAUGHTERHOUSE (JOELL ORTIZ, JOE BUDDEN, CROOKED I AND ROYCE DA 5’9”) TO RELEASE BRAND NEW E.P. ON FEBRUARY 8, 2011
(New York, NY) –, Entertainment One Music announces the release of The Slaughterhouse E.P., the new E.P. from Slaughterhouse-- the hip hop super-group featuring four of the most lyrical MCs in the game -- Joell Ortiz, Royce Da 5’9”, Joe Budden and Crooked I.
The incomparable talents, prolific lyrics and fan base of Slaughterhouse have created a new excitement within hip-hop which ignited a whirlwind buzz. Rap icon Eminem caught wind of Slaughterhouse and signed them to his label Shady Records. Slaughterhouse and Eminem will appear on the March 2011 cover of XXL which will be on stands nationwide the same day as the release of The Slaughterhouse E.P., February 8, 2011.

The E.P. features Sheek Louch, Jadakiss, Styles P, Dres, and Iffy, with production by Frequency, Black Milk, Mr. Porter and more.
The group came together only 2 years ago when Joe Budden was working on a song for his Halfway House album and enlisted the services of Crooked I, Joell Ortiz and Royce Da 5’9” for a song called “Slaughterhouse.” Inspired by the vibe of track and the immediate chemistry of the four rappers, a plan was immediately made to form the super-group. The group released the self-titled Slaughterhouse album last year on eOne Music to incredible critical acclaim.
Kicking off the year with this E.P., Royce Da 5’9” says, “2011 is ours!!!!”
Slaughterhouse is currently planning and gearing up for a tour that will criss-cross the U.S., giving fans and supporters alike the opportunity to see the super-group deliver ground-breaking performances.
Different Now is the final single from Mello Music Group's label compilation Helpless Dreamer. This one is from senior label member Oddisee featuring his talented lil homie Toine of DTMD. The track starts out with a soul singer crooning "little signs of distance" foreshadowing the theme to come of maturity and it's affects on attraction. Oddisee's production opens up with warm strings & synths, solid drums & hi hats, and a flanging that creates a harmonic series that carries the song forward with ease. When the first verse comes in Oddisee is found waxing philosphically on how his taste in women has changed:
"She practically handed me the ass, and I could care less, because she lacked class. The fitting of her dress would have had me at 21. It's funny son, just a few years older, more revealing's less appealing, and I'm more into shoulders, and other subtleties."
The verse isn't the only thing more honed, as Oddisee's production is polished and shines brightly throughout, offering variations and change ups to keep the listeners ears entertained. The second verse is contributed by Toine, 1/2 of the group DTMD, who offers and equally compelling look at lifes ever changing landscape.
Oddisee's contribution to the MMG label compilation is more than just Different Now, in fact Oddisee offers up 4 new tracks for listeners on Helpless Dreamer. The project is yet another step towards Oddisee's big solo effort coming later this year, People Hear What They See, which is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated albums from MMG in 2011.
