Another milestone has been reached today in the Slaughterhouse saga. The super-group filmed the video to their first single “Number 1” produced by DJ Khalil this afternoon. The video, which is directed by Rik Cordero of Channel Three 21, was filmed in New York City and apparently depicts a party atmosphere and it’s aftermath. According to industry insiders, the shoot was packed with “video girls”, notable names included the models Missy and Jael. Interestingly enough, even Joe Budden’s long-time girlfriend Tahiry Jose made a brief cameo in the video. We can also report that The Horse Shoe Gang, Sauce The Boss and several others were on the scene, but there is no word on whether or not they will be making cameos. We were able to obtain photographs from the video shoot by Hip Hop photographer John Ricard which gives us a glimpse of the action. Ricard’s first photograph shows Joell Ortiz layed out with the models Missy and Jael, while the second shows Joe Budden nearly passed out on a building’s roof top. An additional photo surface later and was posted by Rebel Chic NYC. The photo depicts the super-group kicking it with several models under a gazebo styled tent. At this time we are only able to speculate as to what the song itself represents. However, judging from the imagery, it is clear that the group is trying to grab some mainstream attention with this project. Readers may recall that Royce Da 5’9″ stated that they will push the video to television outlets, but there is no time frame available as to when this will happen. We can confirm that BET was indeed on the scene for this video shoot though, so there is no doubt that they will support this project. In the mean time, keep it locked for further updates and check out the photographs included below for a sneak preview.
