Blackout Top News

R. Hustle Films and Free OnSmash chop it up with the whole Slaughterhouse crew during their show/trip to L.A. Joell discusses “Big Pun Back” feedback. Joey talks about changing while being within SH and more. Crooked talks about his new album, Million Dollar Story, and says it’s dropping in July, hopefully. Finally (not really since it’s not in order), Royce gives us his thoughts on how the EP would’ve been different if it happened back in the day as opposed to now.
