“The Illest”

    Recognizing the buzz surrounding their performance during the BET Hip-Hop Awards, the members of Slaughterhouse are capitalizing on the chatter with the release of a new track, “The Illest.” And more or less, it’s exactly the kind of song we want to hear from these guys. No gimmicks, no real hooks or concepts, just straight spitting from four of hip-hop’s sharpest lyricists over a beat that samples the Notorious B.I.G. I don’t think anyone would argue against an album’s worth of material like this. Hopefully that’s the case when Royce da 5’9″, Joe Budden, Crooked I, and Joell Ortiz deliver their sophomore full-length. Stream “The Illest” below.
