How people still have the NERVE to hate is beyond me.

You got a great fucking album, be happy about it and stop worrying about how much money another man makes.

When did fuckin' rap fans start worrying about the salary of the artists 24/7?

C'mon Nima man stop acting like sales don't matter....especially when the majority of rappers lie about how much they sold and what they're worth. The rappers are the ones who make it a big deal and the reality is....record companies make their money off of the sells.....so it does effect they're bottom line and believe me it matters when they decide what albums to put out and how much to invest....and I know the rappers make their money off of shows and other outlets...but the numbers do matter to them because it effects the negotians of their next contract...it also shows there relevance in hip-hop commercially.

Just because they didn't sell well doesn't mean it's not a good album.....infact the album is dope....but times change and in these days and times it matters to someone...... or record companies would give the shit away for free......

ppl like game have like 7-8 good songs on their albums,thats why they sell more.

just 1 examoke us cukoo produced by dj khalil,thats the worst song ive ever listened to

They only undershipped them cause they don't give a fuck about real hiphop. They probably though since it lacked the mainstream sound/style that it wouldn't sell well. Well fuck em.

No, but he made the whole 1st week sales thing more important than it is(I know Jay talked bragged about it before but 50 cent really really was the one who started the whole "1st week sales" shit)

Daymmme I went to my local Best Buy and they all out of Slaughterhouse CDs. Gonna have to wait till next week homie. Da album is fuckin sick i don't undastand mafuckas that can't appreciate good music............................Rapreviews gave these niggas 9/10 callin it the best album of da year so far.
Heres da review:

"Lyrical murderer, blame Rakim
I'm a sniper shootin my way into your lame top ten
Pistol at your head if I ain't next to Eminem
Then I bust in your face like Lil' Kim
Niggaz better pray to the lyrical Lord
that I fall off like the umbilical cord before I fill up the morgue
This is how a killer record
with the double-edged triple syllable sword, I'm iller than all
Dineri, seem I'm a literary genius
Bury niggaz with words, a cemetery linguist
Most rappers are comedy gold
They like they boyfriend's sodomy hole, they full of SHIT!"

Parental advisory - driving around while listening to the self-titled Slaughterhouse album can be dangerous to your health. Possible symptoms include swerving uncontrollably due to spontaneous mirth and wrapping your shit around a telephone pole due to tears of laughter blinding your vision. The fearsome foursome of Joe Budden, Crooked I, Royce Da 5'9" and Joell Ortiz aren't playing around on their self-titled debut. They mean it quite literally when they say this is a Slaughterhouse, because people are going to wind up dead from listening to this album. If the side-splitting punchlines of the above quoted "Lyrical Murderers" don't do you in, the pounding bassline and heavy hitting black piano keys will have your head nodding so hard that it snaps and rolls off your shoulders. Give TheRealFocus... the respect he's due, and make sure you're wearing a neck brace when you do.

The formation of the Slaughterhouse crew is either a happy accident, intelligent design or the best of both. They first appeared together at the same time on one track on a Joe Budden album, and the chemistry was immediately apparent. All four men have a cult following on the internet among rap's most discerning fans, but seem to have a hard time translating that love into the kind of major label distribution and big number of units sold that they'd like. Forming a supergroup was the ultimate FUCK YOU to their naysayers and doubters. If you won't buy any of our individual albums, just TRY to deny four superstars all rocking at one time, top notch rappers who vow to "kill your career with one word" if you think you've got more lyrical ammo. How many rappers do you know who will brag "If you are what you eat, HOW COME I'M NOT PUSSY?" With punchlines taken to Chino XL levels of viciousness and beats to match, Slaughterhouse is so far ahead of the game that even the pre-release singles they leaked aren't dope enough to make the cut here. Take Royce's word for it when you hear his rapid-fire flow on "Onslaught 2":

"My niggaz is dimes, my bitches is dimes
I came up behind Eminen in 99 and I took the baton
I been runnin shit every since then, slaughtered MC's
Sittin watchin my green grow, like I'm waterin seeds
The problem with me is I'm the heart of the streets
Niggaz callin for beats, they can't even call the police
If I ain't better than you I'm harder to beat
Probably cause I live by the art of for-keeps
I get indicted after my product's released
We a different form, a different centrifugal force
Every line is like grippin on a stick shift in a Porsche
My niggaz asked for direction to go on this track
I said FUCK A DIRECTION, spazz out!"

Coming into "Slaughterhouse" I wanted to be skeptical, and think that even hot shit on the internet didn't make for a hot album. The Slaughterhouse crew upped the ante at every turn though, and some of these tracks were recorded so close to release date that there are R.I.P. Michael Jackson references. Did they literally LIVE in the studio making gems? You might think so. They had to have lived, breathed, eaten and shit hip-hop to come up with this abattoir of awesomeness. I'd like to be able to pick out songs to criticize on this fifteen track promo copy, but I'm struggling for something to complain about. MAYBE the beat on "Microphone" by The Alchemist could have been a little hotter, and when the only joint you can even consider picking on is an Alchemist track, that's a statement in itself. Playing this album at random is just as good as playing it straight through. I hit the button and land on "Pray (It's a Shame)" and fall in love. RealSon pours heartfelt soul into the track, and the crew all rap about their personal struggle to overcome the obstacles in life: "Growin' up in the hood'll leave your mind baffled/We put haters in the past like time travel/That's my murder story, I'm past purgatory/I need prayer though, Joey put a word in for me."

It's easy to tout albums as "the must-own summer release" or "potentially the best of the year" or any number of cliches that get used in hip-hop, but Slaughterhouse is figuratively and literally "Cuckoo" about their hip-hop craft - as quick to say fuck you as they are to say fuck a hook, yet entirely capable of making a hardcore rap song feel like a crossover track on "Not Tonight" to hook the mainstream. Guest rappers aren't really necessary on an album where every member of the crew is someone you'd use as a guest star in their own right, but Pharoahe Monch still shows up on "Salute" anyway, while Melanie Rutherford and C. Brown are on the stormy Emile produced "Killaz." So after 15 tracks of relentless rap warfare, what's left to say? Well, they could have skipped the skits. That's about it. Still Joe Budden can't even let up on the album's last track, so who can really complain?

"I disagreed with my shadow when he got on Twitter
Don't like being followed so I shot that nigga
A known loner; that's backwards
I'm a loner that's known to attempt to put a comber in a coma
You lookin at the prime suspect, with enough stress
If you can give a FLUCK, I can give a FLUCK less"

Whether you want to doubt it or not, there's just too much right about the self-titled Slaughterhouse for this album to be wrong. There aren't many times as a writer for this site that I'd like to a review an album twice, but as much as I like it right now I actually want to travel back in time like they do in these rhymes to see if I'd give it a perfect 10 later.

Although i agree the record company may have had a factor in this, the mainstream was never going to buy into this group, only real die hard lyracist fans of hip hop would even bother listening to this.
Say for example your average teeny bop, 50cent, game, flo-rida fan walks into there local music store and picks up the slaughter house album, They may remember joe budden from pump it up, probably not though. The wont know crooked i, may have heard of Royce through d12 and eminem and they sure as fuck would not have heard of joell ortiz. They put down the album and buy relapse again!!
Well Im hoping this is going to be one of those word of mouth albums that just keeps selling gradual numbers.Extensive touring is a big factor in this and rock the bells was a start and now going on a tour with tech n9ne will only further long term sales.Artists like atmosphere and cormega sell a 100,000 each album but you ask a casual person who they are and theyd scratch their head.Word of mouth and quality of product will sell this album long term.E1 did fuck up though and didnt anticipate the demand.In this world it was a miracle people went out to stores to buy the album,but then its being reported sold out everywhere people are just going to shrug their shoulders and say fuck it.Id say e1 fucked them out of 10,000 in first week sales.All in all though i think if they keep touring this album will do 100k in the long term.

atmosphere was a bad example. a lot of girls i know would love to rock slugs mic no homo

thats pretty good for them. I expected them to sell somewhere near that cause there are 4 members from different regions (plus rock the bells must have had some impact). To me they haven't got the right chemistry yet but I applaud their attempt to bring back quality hip hop. The beats and topics could have been improved. Plus Crooked can be a bit annoying to me so that made it a bit less listenable...

25k, lets see what that makes in real money.

An artists gets about two dollars out of one sold CD so 25000 X 2 = 50000$ total. Now there's 4 band members. I don't think they have equal shares so Joe Budden gets 50% of the 50K since he's simply the best and has the biggest ego. Joel and Royce get both 20% ,I think. Crooked I gets only 10% since Long Beach's Employment Agency signed him as an intern to Slaughterhouse.
You probably wanna see how much the west coast's favorite rappers gets out of this after taxes and all expenses, huh? OK, 10% out of 50K is 5000. Not bad for an intern. Now the government wants its share of Crooked I's 5K which is totally understandable because everyone has to pay taxes. Income taxes for less than 8K is 10%, so 10% out of 5000 is 500 which leaves 4500$ to Crooked I. Well, it seems like Crooked I owes some child support money to his baby momma so Crooked I has to pay 2602 dollars and 46 cents. After paying his child support, Crooked I has 1897.54$ in his wallet. That wasn't all. Crooked I's old friend Big Mike is in jail for a bar fight and the bail is set to 1600 dollars. Crooked I has no choice but bail a brotha out.

After all expenses Crooked I gets 297 dollars and 54 cents out of Slaughterhouse. Not really Master P money but money nonetheless.
