Quote:That's right everyone, the first week sales count for Slaughterhouse's debut project has now been announced. According to HITS Daily Double, the E1 Entertainment released project weighed in with a total of 22,255 copies sold. Although it is not specifically stated on HITS' web site, we can only assume that these numbers include digital sales as well. Interestingly enough, there are sources that are now claiming that these numbers are not final. Fans should not be disappointed with these numbers as they are pretty solid considering the scale of the project. In fact, it was originally announced that only a mere 35,000 copies were shipped to retailers by E1 Entertainment. However, one week before the album's release, Joe Budden stated on his Blog TV live stream that only 20,000 units were actually delivered. Assuming that information is correct that means that nearly all items were sold and digital copies played a big role in these numbers. We can only assume that if more physical copies were made available, that fans would have been comfortable making a purchase. Do not forget, that these numbers simply reflect first week sales and that supporters are still encouraged to visit local retailers and online stores such as iTunes. As Slaughterhouse continues their promotional tour, it is plausible that the total life time of this project could last for several months to come. If you are interested in viewing the album sales chart provided by HITS, please do so by visiting the link included below. In the mean time, continue to spread the word of Slaughterhouse's album release and keep it locked for additional updates regarding this monumental release.

Quote:That's right everyone, the day that we have all been waiting on has finally arrived. The highly anticipated album from Slaughterhouse, Hip Hop's super-group is now available for purchase. It started out as a simple collaboration nearly ten months ago and has grown into a world wide movement. This album is not only a win for the group's members Crooked I, Joe Budden, Royce Da 5'9" and Joell Ortiz, but is a milestone for Hip Hop in general. Slaughterhouse is living proof that the art of emceeing still matters in this day and age. We would like to congratulate Slaughterhouse on all their success and their constant grinding to reach the level they have achieved. Because this group has blessed fans with so much classic music, we urge everyone to pick up two copies and support real Hip Hop. We understand that supplies will be limited in music stores across the globe.

Here is the allhiphop article, and interview with Joey.  7/7 is definitely not set in stone, but the deal is and the album will be aout soon.  ALso talk of getting Chino XL on the album!!

Slaughterhouse, the lyrical super group comprised of Joe Budden, Crooked I, Royce Da 5’9” and Joel Ortiz has found a recording home with E1.

E1 is the label formerly known as Koch Records and houses a number of independent rap entities.

“We’re working on it. It’s a one-off [a one album deal],” Joe Budden told AllHipHop.com. “It’s coming very soon.” No official release date has been announced, but insiders suggest it could be as early as July. Budden previously revealed that he’s working on a solo album, The Great Escape, slated to hit stores later this year.

Hip-Hop aficionados have been fawning over Slaughterhouse for the group’s capacity to offer a mixture of traditional lyrics and contemporary styling.

Budden said that they were open to doing tracks with other artists such as Chino XL.

“There have been a lot of people telling me that if you all don’t do a song with Chino XL, y’all are buggin,’” Budden said, admitting that adding new members offers a new dynamic. “I don’t know about adding a fifth member. We kind of got a camaraderie and a chemistry going where, if Slaughterhouse is somewhere, Slaughterhouse is somewhere and it’s the four of us. Chino XL, I’m not mad at that. He’s top notch.”

The Slaughterhouse album has not definite release date and the title hasn't been revealed either.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm picking up more than one copy. This is huge news for not only the group as a collective, but Crooked I. This is another stepping stone to his major debut release. Yeah, we've copped, Life After Death Row, the mixtapes, Block Obama 2, the digital singles, etc... But this project right here is going to be recognized on a national to international scale.

I couldn't see why either, UK's hiphop scene is pretty big, should hit any record store with a decent import of underground hiphop.
