Slaughterhouse‘s Royce Da 5’9 has responded to a diss video by J-Hood on his new song “Hottest in the Hood,” warning the rapper to watch his wordplay.
While primarily focusing on the former D-Block member, Royce also uses the track to address Joe Budden‘s rap nemesis Ransom.
“Your nose in the shotgun like J-Hood,” Royce rapped. “Speaking of him, he’s a bum/Hundred rounds, hundred pounds of punks get done/Rap n*gga rappin’ his way to his demise/I ain’t Ransom, chump, I don’t shoot in the sky…J-Hood, you lunch/Lil five foot n*gga type you could rob at punch point/Ha, laugh at you, ain’t got the heart to pull a piece and blast you/Smaller than my niece…For the cake, I’ll battle a savage/F*ck a cop, show me the green I’ll bring malice/You trying to drop hip-hop, I’m trying to grab it/From you ringtone n*ggas, fake G’s and f*ggots.” (“Hottest In The Hood”)
J-Hood was featured in a video clip earlier this month dissing both Budden and Royce.
“Out with the old, in with the new,” Hood said. “Talking greasy about your boy man, Joe Buddens and that Royce Da 5’6 n*gga on stage at S.O.B.’s performing that wack a** sh*t…You feel a way about what I’m saying at you, get at me. I hit you on MySpace, I told you you was p*ssy and you wanna get at me directly, you wrote me back with the paragraph…get the f*ck outta here before I slap your whole f*cking head off.” (Trilla DVD)
Since his departure from D-Block, Hood has caught the attention of bloggers and underground hip-hop heads.
Damn fam. Just when I thought this dude was gonna disappear… he’s back. But only this time, he’s not running around with his head cut off. You ever heard of the “chicken little syndrome”? Basically it’s when someone goes into a frenzy and starts yelling “the sky is falling!” … but everyone tunes them out.” He took Jadakiss‘ “Letter to B.I.G” and attempted a weak, wack, corny spin-off of the overly recycled joint. That somehow managed to become more recycled than Lil Wayne‘s “A Milli.” (SOHH NYC)
Slaughtehouse currently consists of four regional rappers.
Made up of the West Coast’s Crooked I, Detroit’s Royce Da 5’9, Brooklyn’s Joell Ortiz and Jersey City, New Jersey’s Joe Budden, the group recently discussed how they came together. Budden claims the group was formed after performing on the song “Slaughterhouse” from his digital release Halfway House featuring the three members. “We all agreed the record was great,” Ortiz said in an interview. “And we wanted to keep making great music.” (Hip Hop Official)
