Slaughterhouse Members Speak On Battling TDE’s Black Hippy
(AllHipHop News) Two of the leading crews in Hip Hop at the moment are Shady Records’ Slaughterhouse and Top Dawg Entertainment’s Black Hippy. Both collectives made waves during last year’s BET Hip Hop Awards Cyphers, and SH members Joe Budden and Joell Ortiz were among the emcees who responded on wax to BH member Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse.

Some rap fans have wondered what would happen if Slaughterhouse (Budden, Ortiz, Royce da 5’9″, Crooked I) faced off against Black Hippy (Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul) in a head-to-head rap battle. Slaughterhouse spoke on the hypothetical contest on RapFix Live. According to Crooked, his team would come out on top.
“Let me tell you something, that’s not a shot, because I really appreciate what they do,” said Crooked. “But as a rapper, I feel like I’m supposed to believe that. When I get on the court, nobody could see me. That’s just what I’m supposed to do. But that doesn’t stop me from being a fan of other great lyricists.”
Royce feels that the match would not pair up easily. His perspective is that the two groups take different approaches to their rapping styles and the winner would be decided mostly on the preference of the judges.
“I don’t think that we’re in the same lane,” added Royce. “I think that we get compared to them because we’re crews. But I’m not so sure that me and Schoolboy could really go at each other, with what he does, versus what I do. It’s not really the same thing.”
Slaughterhouse is teaming with Shady boss Eminem for a rap battle competition featuring some of the stand out names on the circuit. The “Total Slaughter” tournament includes Math Hoffa, Arsonal, Dizaster, Daylyt, Big T, Marvwon, Aye Verb, and Cortez.
Latest Surveillance Video of Avonte Oquendo Leaving School Released
New footage shows Avonte before he ran out of his school.
New footage that shows what happened before and after Avonte Oquendo ran out of his Queens, New York, school on Oct. 4 has been released.
In the video, an adult is shown walking down a hallway and out of a door. The door does not shut completely and is left open for a half hour, according to ABC 7 New York. Avonte then runs down the same hallway, at 12:03 p.m. and pauses when he gets to the door before running out. Later a school safety officer walks up the hallway and closes the door.
Avonte’s family lawyer, David Perecman, said that this is unacceptable. “Never again,” he told ABC 7. “Don’t let children leave school. Between bringing them to school and getting them home they can’t disappear.” Perecman filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city alleging that school personnel failed to monitor Avonte.
Thousands gathered for Avonte’s funeral Saturday in Manhattan. Avonte’s body parts were discovered in the East River in Queens, New York, on Jan. 16. This was a sad ending to a more than three-month search for the teen. The cause of his death is still being determined.
On Sunday, New York Sen. Chuck Schumer proposed legislation called “Avonte’s Law,” that states the government would pay $10 million for GPS tracking devices for autistic children.

T.I. Denies He’s Divorcing Tiny
Hustle Gang leader addresses breakup rumors.
Contrary to rumors that have been circling this week, T.I. and Tiny’s family hustle is still very much intact.
The couple is not splitting up, but did get into an argument, the rapper confirmed to TMZ.
Breakup rumors started after T.I. skipped the Grammys and didn’t attend any pre- or post-show events with Tiny. The duo — who married in 2010 and have been together for over a decade — are rarely seen without one another, and added fuel to the fire with subliminal Instagram messages seemingly aimed at one another.
Over the weekend Tip wrote, “Dis da 1st day of da rest of my life!!!! IG in da last 24hrs my life has changed!!!! No details necessary…. Just try to accept da change.”
He added, “From now on. And that’s #OnDoeB #OnPhil it’s #Hustegangovererrrrthang #god #Children #ThatCheck IN THAT ORDER!!!!! What God got for me Can’t NOBODY TAKE it away…it’s mines!!!!”
Tiny had an announcement of her own. “These n—-s be acting up & these B’s be letting em! True Story… My fav song right now!!!! So what you saying h-e!” The 37-year-old spent Grammy night with Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert, sans her better half.
The real story, according to Tip, is that he and his wife had a disagreement over Tiny wanting to walk the Grammys red carpet. He admitted that the war or words got heated, but that they cleared the air a day later.
