Back in March, Slaughterhouse polarized listeners with My Life, a single which found them tempering their lyrically iconoclastic style with more mainstream ambitions. On the follow-up, Throw It Away, the group once again returns to the topic of big-money stunting, this time over a grimier, sampled beat courtesy of Mr. Porter. Swizz Beatz lends his vocals to the chorus. Have Crook, Royce, Budden and Ortiz struck the right balance of underground and mainstream appeal with their latest joint? Debate away. Whatever your opinion, you’ll be able to hear plenty more where this came from on Shady debut welcome to: OUR HOUSE, scheduled for release August 28.
