While i was having a blogging Hiatus i was working on this little gem right here.
This is a Mixtape by me which mainly shows Slaughterhouse teaming up with other great rappers to destroy some beats. Plain and simple.
To help you understand the meaning of the cover i asked the designer John Wheeler to explain it:
“Overall, I stuck with the idea of using a Lion as a visual metaphor. Lions have always been used to represent royalty, a king, or whoever has “the throne”.
The way I see it, Hip-hop is such a competitive game and especially since watch the throne was dropped a lot of MC’s are trying to claim that “the throne” is rightfully theirs.
While there is no official “throne”, it is a widespread belief that the rapper with most record sales would claim that spot.
The Lion represents anyone in that top spot, to me that means Wayne, Kanye, Jay-Z, Ross, etc. (not specifically any one in particular, it’s up to the viewer’s interpretation).
So the main concept is, Slaughterhouse might not sell as many records as most of the radio ringtone rappers, the so called best in the game, BUT they most definitely can destroy them lyrically.
The visual depicts that throne has been sabotaged with the blood of the fallen king”
