V Exclusive: Royce Da 5’9″ Talks New Slaughterhouse Single, “Hammer Dance”


In preparation of Slaughterhouse’s Shady Records debut, the four fire-spitters have dropped their new single, “Hammer Dance.” The AraabMuzik-produced banger is already drawing a crazy reception from diehard rap fans. VIBE.com spoke with Royce Da 5’9″ exclusively about the song’s origin.

“That was something Paul Rosenberg brought to the table when we first started recording in Detroit. We were all aware of AraabMuzik and his music, so when Paul suggested him it seemed like a no brainer,” Royce says.

Nickel Nine tells VIBE the group didn’t have any trouble choosing “Hammer Dance” as the lead single.

“It always a majority decision with the group but I think with this particular record we just happen to all agree.”

Not only did the Shady signees release the new track, but they’re hitting the road for a nationwide tour, kicking off on March 8 in Dallas, TX.

Slaughterhouse’s Welcome to: Our House album will be released on May 15. For more information on the tour, check their site.
