According to common wisdom, artistic integrity and financial success are mutually exclusive; thus, a rapper can be forgiven for releasing garbage on the grounds that he or she had bills to pay. Like most pearls of common wisdom this is utterly f**king false. Living proof that you don’t have to sell out in order to sell records, Slaughterhouse revel in the riches that their uncompromising dedication to their craft has earned them on new single My Life. Inspired by Corona’s Rhythm of the Night, this anthemic jam has all the makings of a hit—a scorching club instrumental by STREETRUNNER and Sarom, a sing-along hook by pop icon Cee-Lo...—with one key difference: Royce, Crook, Joe and Joell don’t take the cut’s appeal as license to slack off, instead lacing the beat with all the fast, furious and aggressive lyrical flames a head could ask for. “How does it feel to count dollar bills that I found off skills?” Pretty damn good, evidently. Fans of the hip-hop supergroup can find this cut and much more on their Shady Records debut, welcome to: OUR HOUSE, set to drop June 12. In the meantime, be sure to check out the official video for lead single Hammer Dance, newly-added to the DJBooth feature post.
