Slaughterhouse Stockholm show review

Slaughterhouse is touring Europe, and you know how real it gets. The Real 136 was invited, and as promised here's the review:

Stockholm. January 23rd. Y'all know what it is.

The crowd was wildin’ before the show even started. Mad bottles flying, suckas brawling over nothing. The Real had to handle security and we threw people out just for livin, you know how we do.

Anyway, onto the show.

Like the album, it started with Sound Off and the MCs got onstage one by one. Royce got on first and completely WRECKD it, then Joell came and MURDERD it and Crooked BURID it on the third. Last Joe B came out with a special singing number instead of rapping (it was hilarious), and the show was off to a great start.
The big homie Ortiz had the most energy, gotta hand it to him. He spit the verses and jumped around with a passion. Sadly though, Royce on the other hand was definitely having an off night. He was losing his voice throughout and after a while it got real bad, meaning no chance of a live Gun Harmonizing. UNACCEPTABLE. But for tonight we let it slide.

They did most of the album tracks and also Fight Club, Woodstock, Onslaught and a few solos. Joell flipped out during Hip Hop, stepping on a pair of sunglasses that Budden dropped when he was headbanging. Royce had mad troubles with Boom due to the voice but was backed up by the realer kids in the crowd. Joe did his best with Pump It Up and finally Crooked came strong with motherfuckin' Boom Boom Clap.

To represent their origins each MC also performed a local cover track. Joell did it for Brooklyn with Hypnotize, Royce repped the D with The Way I Am, Crooked put it down for the west with Nuthin But A ‘G’ Thang, and Budden attempted Hip Hop Hooray by Naughty. It was a fun segment, displaying the great diversity of this unlikely supergroup.

Towards the end, the soundman started messing with Joe Budden’s head. When it was his turn to rap, the mic made stupid sounds and his voice sounded like a chipmunk. It was fun for the crowd but Budden crumbled, throwing a teary-eyed fit at which point the soundman turned off his mic. Then someone in the crowd even snatched if off him.

They tried to take his mic but Joe fought to get it back

Here's some fanboy footage we found, with Royce losing his voice at 0:46 and Joe B arguing with the soundman at 1:28 (clip starts loud)

In closing, too bad about Royce's voice and the soundman and parts of the crowd. But regardless, the show was off the motherfuckin' hook!

The Snoop incident at the 2009 BET awards

”I’m at the BET awards, sitting in DISGUST!”

You heard it in the song. It’s a true story from back in june 28, 2009. The Real 136, always on the spot, was there and we caught up with the man on the way out.

The Real: Yo Snoop... YO, CALVIN, wait up!
Snoop Dogg: WHAT?
The Real: Wait up, dogg. Let’s talk for a minute.
Snoop Dogg: Th…The Real? Is that you?
The Real: *laughs* Yeah. So I was keeping my eye on that VIP section, and you stormed off just as Wayne got to the stage back there. And now I see you outside lookin like you're about to pop off? Man... He took your award?
Snoop Dogg: Fuck no!
The Real: Talk to us, man.
Snoop Dogg: If I’ve got a problem, I go after a nigga motherfuckin head. I’m UNCLE Snoop.

The Real: Just to be clear tho.... Did Lil Wayne have anything to do with this?
Snoop Dogg: I AIN'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT THESE LIGHTWEIGHT NIGGAS. This is hip hop, I run this whole shit!
The Real: Oh word? ....watch your fuckin' mouth… *laughs* Nah, we ain’t got nuthin but love. Good to see you, dogg. Now get on up outta here and keep making that music.
Snoop Dogg: Fo’ shizzle. See you at the spot later, nephew.

Peace to Snoop. As a matter of fact, Lil Wayne too. And look out for the Dr Dre feature we got going in anticipation of Detox. It's HOT!

DJ Premier makes album with Nas. Tearful Gangstarr break-up due to porn addiction. Prodigy takes over hollywood!

What Premier should do and why.

1. Make that album... You know what we're talkin about, we're talkin about Nas & Premier (featuring AZ if he wants). Why? Because we're not sure hip hop will last another year with that joe budden bullshit everywhere. Remember a few years back when that Souljah Boy disease spread like wildfire? Damn yo... We personally know people still affected by it. And now you see joe budden and his wack blogs, wack music, GETTING PUNCHED AROUND IN THE CLUB LIKE A BITCH (sup raekwon). So in this day and age we need a Nas & Premier album to bring back the real.
2. Make up with Guru for a Gangstarr reunion. Ok, *sigh* Let's put the truth out there... DJ Premier has a well known porn addiction, and it led to the end of Gangstarr as we know it. Word is Primo got out of hand with Guru's bitch one late night in the studio while Guru was passed out, and eye witnesses report seeing the king of monotone fleeing in tears. The rapper has been an emotional wreck ever since, refusing to discuss his old group, lying to himself and others that his new "super"producer is the best. But for 2010 we demand that Guru gets over it and "gets his shit together" so that Gangstarr can go back to making classic albums.
Am I right Primo? "Yeah."
Note: If Premier is to work with Nas we can't let that shit happen again with Nas' significant other (Kelis). Nas has had enough of that already and it should be about the music.

What P (Prodigy) should do when he gets out.

1. Save Havoc's career. Dude can't even stand up by himself, like someone pointed out earlier this man fell on his ass in the mall when someone bumped into him by accident. YO HAV, how you gonna be a gangster laying on the floor? When P gets out you cling onto him and don't fucking let go.
2. Make a power move to re-establish his position in the game. The best way is to take out some of these weaker rappers. Potential targets: fat joe, joe budden, saigon and tru life ("th-the tru life incident?!" SUP WITH THAT, HAVOC?). We know P personally and we can see him bunching up all these weak ass rappers in the desert and pistol-whipping them for fun.
3. Get into movies. Take over Hollywood, get some big roles and make that money... P starring as himself in Indiana Jones, The Godfather, Die Hard, new age movies or cowboy movies, they'd be instant blockbusters, ya feel me? He could play himself in any multi billion dollar production, whatever fucking genre, and it would be a hit. If this needs money we're ready to pitch in to make it happen. Youknowwhaimean? *sniffs* sup P we see you, word word.

NEXT WEEK'S TOPICS: Detox, where is it? Who would win a fight, Joe Budden vs Vanilla Ice? NAS speaks out on today's hip hop. The detailed story: CHINGY GOT ROBBED IN A MALL
