And let me say this: Slaughterhouse having an underwhelming first week of sales is not the fault of your Internets. Its their fault. Many sites were hyped about this project - present company included. The fact that four ill spitters linked up to do an album? Fucking phenomenal. The build-up to this project? Major! They seemed to be batting 1.000 every inning. But the first thing that tripped me up was Royce's XXLmag.com interview, where he said "maybe it could be better if we spent a whole lot of time on it". While he cleaned it up, it felt like he was making early excuses before it leaked...
Then it leaked. And many of us found out: this isn't as ill as it should be. Or maybe we overthought what it'd be. All four can spit (although I do subscribe to the school of thought that Joe Budden was the weakest link), but there was a lack of ill beats, and there seemed to be too many tracks where it was just bars for the sake of bars. The supposed "deeper" tracks didn't crack off like they should've, and it just ended up being "iiight". But its not just that: it was was the full cookie. They jumped into it on some fire and brimstone shit, and the album was a lukewarm sizzle. And their press closer to the album (aside from Joe Budden's Black Eye) was pretty shitty. Hell, they went on Hot 97 the week this came out and didn't want to talk about too much, and gave a lackluster freestyle to Ciph and Rosenberg! DJ Green Lantern got an 18 minute Tour de France, and the #1 radio station for Hip-Hop and R&B got a marathon for third graders. There was no real push in terms of getting the public to get what they were doing... basically, for an album made for fans of lyrical art, in 2009, 18K CDs sold is probably a good thing.
But its not the Internets fault. Make a quality album, something that's undeniable, and niggas will support you 'til the cows come home. Come with some weak lay-up line bullshit, and you catch a seat on the bench.
I said it before, and I'll say it again: the best albums in 2009 are free.

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of August 19, 2009 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.
Our commentary this week focused on more of the crazy nonsense happening at the U.S. "Town Halls" about Health Care (including people standing outside with assault rifles and handguns) and how they're more and more becoming a huge barometer of the issues people still have with race & class in this country, U.S. Football player Michael Vick's release from prison & his interview on 60 Minutes, the passing of journalist Robert Novak and some other things here & there.
This week we had an interview with up and coming independent Hip-Hop MC Rockstar (http://WhoIsRockStar.com).
Some of the topics we covered with this very talented young MC was his influences (family, in music and otherwise), how it has been working as an independent MC though the years, especially in his area of the U.S. South, doing good business, how to use the Internet & how NOT to use it properly, his "1 A.M. Tour", upcoming music projects and lot of other things!
This week we don't have new Black Agenda Report segment due to the length of our interview. The Direct EFX segments will return at the end of the HBCU's college summer break period in September 2009.
