KXNG Crooked & Joell Ortiz Release ‘The Rise & Fall of Slaughterhouse’ Album

blame it on Shake March 11, 2022

Joell Ortiz and KXNG Crooked got something to say.

After teaming up in 2020 for their H.A.R.D. project, the Brooklyn-to-Long Beach connection continues with the duo looking to get some things off their chest with a follow-up album called The Rise & Fall of Slaughterhouse.

Wait… what?!

Although it’s been eight years since Slaughterhouse released a project together, it hasn’t stopped fans from wondering what exactly happened to one of the most formidable rap groups in modern history. And while each member has gone on to succeed through various avenues, the fact that we’ll probably never get to hear Glass House (the group’s third album that never saw the light of day) or that new music from the four will never happen again is quite unfortunate.

What’s done is done, though. And now, following two weeks of each member (including Royce 5’9 and Joe Budden) taking part in various social discussions and speaking their minds after “Vacancy” was released, Crook and Joell have released the album in its entirety. A 13 track effort with contributions from Blakk Soul, Sly Pyper, and Traxx Sanders.

Press play and be sure to add the album wherever yo get music.
