Slaughterhouse; Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz & Royce Da 5'9", are multi-dimensional, multi-talented, experimentalists who are widely being compared to Hip-Hop legends, WuTang Clan.
“I was inspired to create this Slaughterhouse mix because I had heard a prior compilation that wasn't mixed and I personally thought the track selection didn't reflect each individual artist’s talent the best,” explains the Midwest’s Mixologist.
The Mixologist is credited with the wildly popular and ground breaking mixtape series called “Check the Blend,” which has received acclaim from fans and DJ’s across the globe.
