NEW VIDEO: Eminem Slays in Slaughterhouse’s “Throw It Away” Video
Slaughterhouse head to, well, the slaughterhouse for the second video off their Shady Records debut, “Welcome to: Our House.” The track on visual display is the Mr. Porter-produced and Swizz Beatz-assisted “Throw It Away.” In the mafia-inspired clip, the foursome — Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Royce da 5’9″ and Joe Budden — don pig masks, kidnap a Tony Soprano-lookalike, and demand a lucrative $500 million ransom. When the boss’ wife can’t pay up, the bad man falls victim to the scheme’s Mastermind, played by none other than Eminem. Swizz Beatz also shows up to wave some stacks and rap the catchy chorus: “You know I ain’t Jay-Z, honey/ But I’mma act like I ain’t never had money.” “Welcome to: Our House” was finally released this week. The hip-hop supergroup had only released one album, their 2009 self-titled LP, before officially signing with Em’s Shady Records in January of 2011. “For me to be into this group, has really saved my life,” Crooked I told VIBE earlier this month. “I started rapping when I was 8 years old. To be 8 years old and come up around these guys, and to have an opportunity—just to have an opportunity. I can’t even express to you. I could never express what it means to me to have the opportunity that Em gave me. If a motherfucker try to shoot at him, I’m gonna stand right there. I’m gonna stand in front of him.” Watch the “Throw It Away ” video below.
