This is actually pretty cool. MCs will know the deal but for the non-initiated, the Slaughterhouse boys drop some science, yo.
Wooooord up. Big ups to the homies DJ Hyphen and J. Moore out in Seattle, WA, and their Sunday Night Sound Sessions show on Kube 93fm. Myself, Notion and Bekah done rolled through the studio last year in September during our US radio trip, and the boys been had the biggest names in Hip Hop on the show. None other than Slaughterhouse - Royce, Joell and Joe (Crooked was recording with a Seattle artist) - came through and gave a great interview. Check the video, and check out Hyph's blog for the audio and other details.
Lolskis. These dudes are saving Hip Hop right now. Cop that album.
Fuck, this is some shit. This is the first single off the supergroup's self titled album due to drop August 7th. Insane.
Man... it may look like all we post about Drake a lot on themovementfam.com blog, but the dude just keeps poppin' up in the news!!
Drizzy Drake is making his name more recognized as days pass. He's been garnering attention, respect and accolades recently, and it seems that the future looks bright for the young, Young Money star, who is already rumored to be working with Just Blaze and Jay-Z. (Just between you and me, I'm a bit stiff in my pants...pause..)
In a recent interview with Joe Budden for JoeBuddenTV, Drake spoke up about disses and more.
After saying he was humbled by recent success, he added that he could not believe what he has achieved.
"I never thought it would come this far," he noted. Later, he added that he would never diss other emcees.
"Diss me, you'll never get a reply," he noted, saying he would never disrespect another emcee on wax.
He went on to address rumors of a beef brewing with Kid Cudi.
"They keep trying to create a problem between me and Cudi. I love that guy, man...I listen to his music."
Drake's success has taken off so much that he recently sold out a May 2, 2009 Atlanta show in just five hours.

This remix album has been out for a while now floating around various review sites and blogs on the net. Seriously dope concept which adds another level to Joe Budden's grimey, thug intellects and similarly dark, haunting Portishead soundscapes which need no introduction.
You might recognise Ill Poetic from his various productions for Blueprint, Illogic and Wordsworth to name a few.
Vocals's from Budden's Mood Muzik 3 perfectly mashed with Portishead fantastic Third album of last year, plus a few other classic beats.
In the world of Hip Hop, this had been another wild week. To top it all off, Phonte (of Little Brother) let loose on Kanye West, letting his feelings about Yeezy's latest album and the autotune madness. Barack Obama has now officially been confirmed as the President of the United States.
Just Blaze had to mediate to severe beef between Joe Budden and Saigon before things got physical or violent.
Phonte has called Kanye West a coward for his latest album. All that autotune ish did not impress Phonte, who said that '808s & Heartbreak' was garbage and if he really had talent he would have used his real voice.
Former Bad Boy rapper Mark Curry has broken his silence of Puff's crazy business tactics. In some cases, Diddy would charge his own artists to appear on their songs and in their videos. The worst thing was that Diddy would insist his artists have his Bentley in all their videos, then charge them and write off his car as a tax credit for business purposes.
J-Dilla's family unfortunately is not getting anything from the sale of his beats. His money is tied up in medical bills and IRS debt that his estate still owes. In this case, it is very bad because his mom, who now has lupus, is not getting anything and also his daughters are not getting a dime from his estate.
'Til next week y'all, take care and stay tuned for more news.
