Slaughterhouse being on all these fuckin mixtapes and having their EP and dropping all these "freestyles" and solo and group albums and so on and so on is part of what is the problem with hiphop.

Atleast Dre understands that its quality over quantity.  Putting out a million subpar verses pales in comparison to dropping one classic song.   Id rather Slaughterhous figure out how to make a few classic cuts then every other day finding on a new track or mixtape

Mixtapes are a good way to give out free music to fans. Dre makes it seem like he doesn't give a fuck about his fans, which he obviously doesn't. There can obviously come a point where too much is too much, but I don't see that being a problem with Slaughterhouse. There styles are more fit for mixtape type shit anyways.

I think it cheapens your work.  Like everybody is always fiending for a new Dre project.  In the good old days of Death Row, Suge and Dre used to always teach their artistts to never overexpose themselves, and it kept the demand high for their music.  And when it finally did drop that shit would hit you hard like Kush... but Snoop said once Puffy and them started having success being on any and everybodys albums that he started doing the same.

I hate to say it, but for once I gotta go with Brian on this one.

Quality over quantity always pays off in the end. Don't put out more wack shit than good shit and people will check for you. I miss the old days of when you wouldn't heard from an artist for like 3 or 4 years until they were ready to drop a new album. The quality of music was much better.

But this isn't the case with Slumberhouse though. They don't even motivate me to steal their shit.

Slaughter house buzz died a while back. I expected there second album to be trash. It just proves you can put 4 good emcees together but doesn't mean you will get a classic album

Slaughterhouse is a generic industry made group. they'll never live up to potential.

that is bullshit ! s;aughterhouse is not generic industry made group at all. the geto boys were industry made group. slaughterhouse was never a industry made group ever ! they formed slaughterhouse because wanted to not because of record excutive or the industry.  there is nothing generic about slaughterhouse at all .

Geto Boys were created by their label, not neccesarily the industry.

As for Slaughterhouse, I don't feel overexposure is their problem. I think their last album was just lacking something. They're trying to put these songs together with individual verses for each one or splitting a verse into two half verses but I go through that whole album and the chemistry still isn't quite there. I mean, the one record I can point to as a group joint where the chemistry was on point was "Louis XIV" off Xzibit's last one. You had Xzibit, T, and the Liks switching off verses, bouncing back and forth, and everything felt sharp. I think Jadakiss and Styles P. have a similar chemistry when they do songs together. I'm not sure those rocked-out Skyler Grey tracks fit their style either. I know a lot of people hate Eminem doing them as well but I actually think his style works better with them as he's a versatile enough songwriter to carry them.

their music is too forced, u can tell theyre going for a certain sound that they feel would appeal to current times as opposed to just putting out the best music they possibly can. geto boys mighta been put together by a label, but their music came from the soul and they banged out classics because of that, they werent making music to appeal to mainstream pop audiences because the label wanted it that way ala slaughterhouse.

As solo artists, they're better than 99% of the game right now. Together, I can understand the "forced" sound. But "oversaturates the market"? Niggas dropped a mixtape & an album. Them dropping freestyles is something they've all been doing for their entire careers. Oversaturating the market is when you appear on everything on the radio with features & shit. Like Rick Ross is the perfect example. That's outrageous over-saturation. Personally, I feel like that's why Eminem, Jay-Z & Kanye have such longevity. Given they try to keep up with the times, they drop their solo music, maybe do a feature here & there as promotion & go ghost for a year or so. Then when they come back it has a fresh feel to it. Guys like Rick Ross & Meek Mill are just phases for the moment & they'll get old fast.

But for Slaughterhouse; not a highly, widely popular name, you need to do SOMETHING to create some sort of hype/attention. Hasn't that been the formula forever though now? Drop a mixtape, do some radio freestyles & drop an album.

Okay... the day Slaughterhouse can make classic cuts like "My Minds Playin Tricks On Me" or "The World Is A Ghetto" then we can talk.   Because there is no way that you can listen to Geto Boys and deny their chemistry, as far as I know all the artists were from Texas, and unlike Slaughterhouse their work wasn't just a dope line here and there but that shit was powerful and moving.

slaughterhouse was not making music to appeal to mainstream pop audiences in first place . so that is bullcrap . to you their music sounds forced but to me that is just them. also geto boys came up in era when no one was making music for mainb stream , they were just making music . if geto boys who are one of my favorite groups of all times were made & came out today would they not make music for mainstream pop audiences like the reest of the industry is the question?

I remember when Slaughter Houses single "The OnE"  came out everyone here complained about it being a poor ass attempt at being a radio single. So yeah they have forced that shit. Seriously Why do artist not make shit like "Lyrical Murderers" anymore and all this estrogen fueled faggy bullshit. Rap is suppose to destroy your sound system not be a check 1 - 2.
