Title: The Slaughterhouse
Artist: Prince
Label: none
Year: 2004

This was Prince's first full album internet-only release. A combination of new tracks and internet-only singles, this is a solid set of funky jams. Prince seems to have finally assimilated the braggadocio of rap lyrics and delivers it far more smoothly and naturally than on previous efforts (Graffitti Bridge, for example). A little more raw than Musicology, Slaughterhouse owes a lot both musically and lyrically to the Black Album. But without the pitch shifting. Funk workouts Y Should I Do That and Northside are in the vein of 2 Nigs United For West Compton or Superfunkycalifragisexy, and there's more than a hint of Bob George in several tracks. In addition to promoting himself and the love of music, he takes very nicely phrased shots at the music industry in Silicon and 2045.
