Recently the website Ninja Video was able to hook up with Crooked I for an in-depth audio interview presented through Podcast. The interview is mostly geared towards new fans and is structured as a general conversation instead of a detailed question and answer session. A great variety of subjects were covered during the interview ranging from Hip Hop Weekly, Slaughterhouse, B.O.S.S. and the Group Therapy project. Specific details that were revealed include the recording session for the Slaughterhouse album. Crooked I explains that the group was able to complete the project in seven days, which is practically ground breaking. Additionally, Crooked I confirms that the album is indeed self-titled and will be released on Entertainment One (E1). Although many press-release’s have stated that the album is slated for a July release, Crooked I would not be surprised if the album drops in August. However, we must stress that this is not confirmation of a “push back”. Crooked I goes on to mention that Slaughterhouse will be launching a promotional tour starting June 5th in New York that includes radio appearances, live shows and the filming of a music video. Fans should keep their eyes peeled for updates regarding this “tour” as details begin to emerge. As far as Crooked I’s solo career goes, he reveals that he is working on a 6-track EP titled “Mr. Pig Face Weapon Waste” which is slotted for a July release. Crooked I explains that the name is based on the fact that he wears a pig mask during the Slaughterhouse performances and has adapted the nickname “Weapon Waste”. Following the EP release, Crooked I plans to drop the “Group Therapy” project which is a joint venture between himself and Sway & King Tech from The Wake Up Show. Even though this line-up of releases is already a bombardment of new music, Crooked I is also gearing up to release his highly anticipated B.O.S.S. album in the first quarter of 2010. In total the interview runs 45 minutes and the information listed above is only a fraction of the topics that were discussed. Make certain that you visit Ninja Video to listen to the whole Podcast, because Crooked I has a lot to say and there is no way we can include every detail in this update. As always keep it locked to The B.O.S.S. Board for additional updates and look forward to the follow up interview with Ninja Video coming soon.
