VIDEO OF THE DAY: “MY LIFE” BY SLAUGHTERHOUSE

One of Brooklyn’s newest clubs, the Well, will be throwing a monster hip-hop party on August 10 [Ed. note: Because of expected severe weather conditions, the show has been rescheduled for September 8], with DJ Soul, Rahim the Dream, Pharaohe Monch, Paul Marz, Da Circle, J the S, LAD & Willie the Kid, and Freeway paving the way for headliners Slaughterhouse, the rap supergroup formed in 2008 by Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, and Royce Da 5'9. On their upcoming album, Welcome to Our House, which is due from Eminem’s Shady Records on August 28, Slaughterhouse struts its stuff with such special guests as Swizz Beatz, Skylar Grey, Busta Rhymes, Cee-Lo, and Slim Shady himself, who is also among the producers, along with Boi-1da, Mr. Porter, AraabMuzik, and Hit-Boy. The album includes such songs as “Coffin,” “Hammer Dance,” “Flip a Bird,” “Throw It Away,” and “My Life,” the video of which pretty much sums up the group’s raison d’être. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door, which opens at 6:00; the outdoor extravaganza is scheduled to end at 10:00, if the place is still standing by then.
