Slaughterhouse, ‘On the House’ – Best Mixtapes of 2012
'On the House,' Slaughterhouse's first mixtape, released in August 2012, gave listeners extra juice to jug right before the supergroup released their sophomore set, 'Welcome to Our House.'
Freeway makes an appearance on the 13-track project featuring production from Araabmuzik, No I.D. and the J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League.
Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Royce da 5'9" and Crooked I come together as they spit with great focus and lyricism. There's no major flossing of possessions here, just demonstrating skill, loyalty and being "that man." On the title track, Ortiz likens himself to the Dark Knight rapping, "Got Gotham city going insane / I'll come out the bat cave holding a cane / Everyone remain calm, I'm Bruce Wayne." 'On the House' was successful in heightening Slaughterhouse hype.
