This guy has been getting busy check out this SXSW Freestyle and interview shout out to Wheresmy40acres blogspot.com Overall, Connor’s message is clear: I’m ready to play with the big boys. With constant references to slights and his memories of being overlooked, it is clear that he is growing impatient with his current spot in the game. “I want labels bashful like, ‘How we get this guy get away?’” he boasts on “Til I Collapse.” “Like, imagine all the muthafuckas that passed on Jay/Or the labels that heard ‘Jesus Walks’ and passed on ’Ye/I bet they still kickin’ theyself in they ass, to this day.” He plans to make them feel the same way. The trouble with taking a legend’s beats is that you will inevitably be compared to them. And while Jon Connor definitely holds his own, in the future, when he branches out and continues developing his own sound instead of leaning on the legacies of others, his value as an emerging artist will become even more eviden

Crooked I explains how Slaughterhouse cultivates its sound, as well as Eminem’s involvement on the project.
As Slaughterhouse readies its Shady Records debut, Crooked I recently discussed the anticipated project with Conspiracy Worldwide Radio .
The West Coast emcee first discussed the possibility of getting DJ Premier involved in the project. “It’s always a possibility until it’s getting pressed up and printed up,” said Crooked. “When we did the first Slaughterhouse album, we recorded most of it in Premier’s studio, in New York. HeadQCourterz.”
Crook also discussed the difference in recording the group’s upcoming project as opposed to their last. “I think the difference is we have a lot more elbow room on this album, because the last album was on Koch. We were kinda placed in a box. You got a lot of elbow room to be creative, and you have a CEO that’s an emcee as well. He understands where we’re coming from. It’s just a blessing, man.”
The Slaughterhouse member also talked features without getting specific. “There’s a lot of heavyweight producers on board; we’ll have a few surprise features with artists out there that are staying true to the craft and are reigning on the charts. It’s moreso about the sound. We don’t ever grab a record and say ‘This’ll be a smash hit if we put this person on who’s popular.’ It’s more about the sound, like, ‘Who would sound good on this?’ whether it’s an underground person or a mainstream person. It’s about who sounds the best and what would make the song come out the best.”
“We got some joints on there [that Eminem] produced,” revealed Crooked. “I don’t know all that will end up making the album, but definitely he will have joints on there. He brought a couple of incredible records to the table already.” Crooked wouldn’t commit to other producers on the project.

okkkkay now I luv som UGK and Bun B is my dude on the MIC but this is outta hand I think … I mean you can only get so much out of a group but read the article and tell me what you think .. I mean how about some features first or something .
Bun B says he’s open to teaming up with the Shady Records super group .In an interview with True Stories Radio, Bun B responded to the Slaughterhouse statement that if the group could choose a southern emcee to join the team as the fifth member, it would be him. “[They're] some of the greatest lyricists we got in the game right now,” Bun praised. “Really having all four of those cats together–with them and Yela Wolf .
They got a mean lineup over there at Shady Records. I respect those dudes, I respect their grind, I respect their hustle, and I respect their talent. If I could get down with a league of gentlemen like that, then I wouldn’t be mad at all.”He’s worked on a few tracks with the group before, but when asked if he’d be down to feature on an entire Slaughterhouse album he replied, “I wouldn’t be mad at that.”
I started rapping: When I was 8
My style and/or skills have been compared to: Biggie more than anything, I’ve heard alot of comparisons though. From Jay-Z, Nas, 50 Cent to Tupac, Big L, and Nate Dogg. The streets called me everybody, but I got alotta styles, gotta stay fresh.
My standout records and/or moments have been: Biggest accomplishment was definitely being crowned best freestyler in the nation by Eminem after winning the Red Bull EmSee finals. Other than that, opening for Chip Tha Ripper, Wiz Khalifa, Wale, and Raekwon were all great moments for me.
I’m gonna change the game by: Kickin’ shit from a side people not really hearin it from. I wanna really connect with people through my music, let em know what im goin through, have fun/grow wit the people, and get them through some shit too.
I’d Like to Work With: Anybody who shows love and is really about this rap shit
My goal in hip-hop is: To sell 10 million records and become the greatest rapper of all time
I’m gonna be the next: Icon

FowL “Flava In Ya Ear 2011″ Official Music Video
The quartet, which consists of Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz,Crooked I and Royce Da 5’9, is currently prepping the release of its Shady Records debut. Nickel Nine recently spoke on the status of the LP, revealing that they have more than 20 songs already recorded.”I can’t really give too many details about that, because I don’t really know what we’re using,” he said. “But we’ve been in with a lot of big-time producers. But I think after one or two more trips we’ll have more of an idea what songs we’re using. … We’ve got over 20 songs done already and we’re probably only gonna use probably 13. So we’re in a good place with that album.”
