Last night, IFWT presented Slaughterhouse at BB Kings in NYC. XXL was in the building to catch the show, and served up their opinion of how the House Gang “ripped” it. Check out their review below.

Funk Flex

Jersey City’s poster child Joe Budden and Brooklyn’s own Joell Ortiz felt the hometown love last night during Slaughterhouse’s sold-out show at BB Kings, located in the heart of Times Square in New York City.

The event, hosted by Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex and Peter Rosenberg, ran on true hip-hop time, starting an hour later than advertised. Around approximately 11:30 PM security was forced to begin letting fans in the building, as the line for the concert had consumed well-over three blocks of the sidewalk in NYC’s already crowded tourist attraction, Times Square. Flex began his set at midnight and warmed up the audience by strictly spinning old-school joints, taking hip-hop back to its roots and essence, even leaving a majority of the younger attendees out of the loop without regard. BB Kings was barely illuminated and fans weren’t completely filed in until the end of Flex’s set, but that set the tone for the four main event performers.
