Issue 39 / 2012 SLAUGHTERHOUSE Welcome to our House HIP HOP / RNB 35 GUESTLIST RECOMMENDS JEAN GRAE This rapper from Brooklyn NY is signed with Talib Kweli, is a frequent collaborator with Pharaoh Monche, and maintains a lively underground following. Also, (shock horror) she's a girl! 7 Slaughterhouse have recently announced their UK tour dates, as well confirming the title of their forthcoming album. Welcome to: OUR HOUSE, to be released next month will be the second album collaboration of Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Royce da 5'9" since their inception in 2008, following their self-titled 2011 EP. During the past year the group has been featured alongside the likes of Travis Barker, Ludacris and T.I. The very same night of their latest album's release, Slaughterhouse will be appearing at HMV forum, showcasing overt style of hip hop from both coasts of the US, giving fans the opportunity to hear their new direction. their CYPRESS HILL trademark Jean raps in a similar style to many of her semi-underground contemporaries, speaking on subjects of race, weed, the state of hip hop, and being good at rapping. However it's more than just her gender that sets Jean apart from the pack. Her quirky sense of humour, slightly nerdy pop-culture references, (her moniker is an X-men character for those unfamiliar with the Marvel world) and venomous way with words creates a rare uniqueness love, sex, alcohol, AT HMV FORUM ON 5TH JUNE displayed to great effect on her most recent mixtape, "Cookies or Comas". Having held her own on tracks with the likes of Cannibal Ox, Immortal Technique, and Joell Ortiz, and a new studio album entitled "Cake or Death" due soon, we can only hope she carves a path for others in the notoriously chauvinist world of hip hop. TOUR SCHEDULE : JAY Z & KANYE WEST The US superstars Jay-Z and Kanye West bring their 'Watch The Throne' collabora- tion to British Shores, including five, that's right -FIVE-, consecutive London dates: 18th - 22nd May @ The O2 Arena, London. 8th - 9th June @ The O2, Dublin. The first Cuban-American/Latino hip hop group to have platinum and multi-platinum albums, selling over 18 million albums worldwide are back in the UK. B-Real, Sen Dog and DJ Muggs are coming to the HMV Forum in Kentish Town, they are best known for their 1993 classic "Insane in the Brain", taken from the seminal al- bum "Black Sunday". Check out some of their other well- known smoked-out tributes to the stoner lifestyle, including "Dr Greenthumb", "Hits from the Bong", and "I Wanna Get High", for further details on the California crew's favou- rite pastime. A Cypress Hill live show is always more than just your standard rap show. A quick YouTube search proves this, as they surround them- selves with inflated cartoon characters and take hits from comically oversized bongs, to the delight of fans worldwide. With the cancellation of Soni- sphere, and Cypress Hill's wide fan base, the gig will surely sell out, so be sure to snap up tick- ets as soon as possible. 11th - 12th June @ Manchester Arena, Manchester. 13th June @ LG Arena, Birmingham. 21st June @ Motorpoint Arena, Shef field. 22nd June @ LG Arena, Birmingham.
