The Slaughterhouse video for “My Life,” featuring Cee-Lo Green, starts with a humorous segment starring their Shady Records boss Eminem.
Slaughterhouse (Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, Royce the 5′ 9″ and Crooked I) delivers a video that is high on campy special effects, with a little humor, and plenty of energy to match the anthemic sound of the track.
The song and video for “My Life” both feature Cee-Lo Green crooning on the hook, helping to give the track it’s lofty sound. It’s a bit of a departure from the gritty, udnerground sound of past Slaughterhouse efforts, but certainly demonstrates that the foursome can drop a joint which could get the radio/video show play that is still necessary to bring a group such as theirs to the forefront of the game. Purists might disagree with the angle, but if this is what is necessary for Slaughterhouse to achieve widespread visibility, they could have done far worse.
Both Joell Ortiz and Joe Budden were declared “5 Reasons Why New York Hip Hop Doesn’t Suck” by Birthplace Magazine some time ago. The highly anticipated, but recently delayed Slaughterhouse debut, Welcome To: Our House” is expected to be released in July.
