Supergroup Slaughterhouse was born from a collaboration track of the same name on Joe Budden's 2008 release Halfway House. In addition to Budden, the group features Brooklyn rapper Joell Ortiz, Long Beach's Crooked I, and Detroit emcee Royce da 5'9". All four artists have a shared history as top-notch lyricists who haven't reached their maximum potential due to setbacks and squabbles with the music industry and major labels. This should change now that the quartet has signed to Eminem's Shady Records, benefiting not only from the inherent business connections, but also obtaining a producer, mentor, and protector. If the first single "Hammer Dance" is any indication, the forthcoming album promises epic production combined with gritty street-level subject matter. Portland emcee Illmaculate is on the verge of releasing his own full-length, Skrill Talk, which is one of the most anticipated local releases in recent memory. RYAN FEIGH
