UPDATE #3: Listen to Joell Ortiz's "House Slippers."

Joell Ortiz, one quarter of Slaughterhouse, has announced his upcoming House Slippers album. 

"I'm in a comfortable place," he says of the album title in an interview with Complex. "I'm at home with this album." 

The project, set to be executive produced by The Heatmakerz, is also slated to feature a different perspective from Ortiz than the outlook he's shown in past efforts. 

"I decided to clean my life up," he says. "In the process of doing all that, I started seeing better. Things started clearing up for me...Things are different for me and I'm excited about how people receive it."

In January, Ortiz spoke about changing his life through getting in better shape. 

"I learned a lot about weight loss, what weighs and what doesn’t," he said in his January HipHopDX interview. "Muscle is heavy. At first, I took off like 50 to 60 pounds, scale-wise. When you are training and changing your body, you lose everything fast, because your body is reacting. It’s like, 'Oh man, I guess this guy wants me to shred,' so it’s eating up fat. As soon as you start weight training, you put on weight because of muscle mass, but you look the same as you did when you took that drastic weight off. I look exactly how I did 20 pounds ago, but it’s in muscle definition and muscle weight. Initially, I took off like 50 to 60 pounds, but now I may only be 30 pounds from where I started, but I look like a different person."

Beyond his solo work, Ortiz has also been crafting Slaughterhouse's Glass House

    Worse cover ever LMAO, this nigga getting old SMH. Look like one of those old albums that sit in Walmart.
  • wedad
    the production kinda weird, like the drums are muffled on most songs
  • Anonymous
    the cover is mad wack, features could be better, like featuring Chino XL, Chris Rivers (Pun's son), Immortal Technique, etc.
  • young cop killah
    features are beyond wack and so is the cover
  • Drakes cool tho
    i hate white rappers

    with the great legacy of Puerto Rican artists... ** this ** is the fucking garbage this clown puts out? Really? What an embarrassment. 40 year old man finally realized he shouldn't be wasting $$$ and time in idiot strip clubs, wow, he's "evolved"! Maybe he'll read a book this years and really blow minds.
  • moresickaMC
    haha. obviously the cover is supposed to be generic and simple on purpose. he's in a new space, he's a normal/regular/round the block dude. he's not tryna be extra. I'm more interested in the music, im sure it will be good.

    Joell - you agreed/didn't contest this photo for you album? You're my dude, but you like you have a load in your pants.
  • tcruz
    sad to say i haven't heard anything impressive from this guy since like 2010 battle cry.... 3 albums in 7 years and the first two were ehhh....hopefully this one is decent but he just doesn't sound hungry anymore

    My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,,, ============== WWW.WORKTAHI.COM ==================
  • DUH
    Not sure why some of you are getting so worked up by the cover . The albums called (House Slippers) not (Guns Or Butter) or (Nightlub Dreams) It's obviously supposed to be simple and more grown up . You trolls are so simple minded.
    • Anonymous
      It could use a little more work, you gotta admit. Looks like a mixtape cover.
    • not a troll
      naw man look at that cover. i understand its supposed to be simple and what not, but they just took a lame picture and slapped some generic font on it. he looks like hes at the mall waiting for his girl to finish trying on clothes in the dressing room, all miserable and shit. name the shit house slippers but hes dressed like hes goin to a fancy dinner. gotta say i disagree with ya bruh.
    • Anonymous
      He's bent over like he's taking a shit. This album cover is weak. I love dude, support his music and the whole nine. I just don't understand what he's pushing this time around. So far, the music is average. I understand dude "has arrived", but still, you're from Cooper fam. Grow up and move up, but this is hip-hop. You have to remain ill. So far, these first three released tracks are just "cool." Don't let those house slippers fool you. In other words don't overestimate success or confuse who you are musically.
    • Joel
      I think a better cover art would have been(in black in white)Ortiz laid back in the recliner, puffing a cigar with his robe and HOUSE SLIPPERS on reading the newspaper. The newspaper has SLAUGHTERHOUSE clearly visible

      wow! its come to this!!!? trolls taking shots at the cover!!!???? mutha fucka this is hip hop!!
  • worst album cover in a long time
    Gotta say like everyone else what the fuck is up with that cover yo? im sure the bars n beats are gon be fire but why the album cover lookin like he tryin to sell me a knockoff shirt at the dollar tree store

    damn nigga. that album cover sucks. the albums gonna be tight but put more creativity into the album covers my nigga. that shit is part of the art 2

      You mean too thought I would correct that for you.

      Agreed. This is a horrible album cover. He looks pensive, like "will this album smash?" Granted, he shouldn't be in a hoodie and Timbs, but the setting/wardrobe/body position is just "off." He looks like he's waiting for his date to come out the bathroom in Cheesecake Factory while he's holding in shit cramps so he can beat it later that night with a clean ass.

    for all the great graffiti heritage of NYC... that's what this clown comes up with? and what font is that anyway, Joell? nice handstyle sweetcheeks! can I get a poster too?

    Who cares what it sounds like-- can Joell Ortiz ever be "interesting"? I think not... But the cover art is DREAMY!! You get 'em Joell. Maybe next time you can be barefoot in white pants, your boat shoes casually kicked off to the side.

      joell ortiz is one of the best right now and has been since he started. smh
  • Aim80
    They should've hired a graphic designer for that album cover instead of Joell's mom. I'm sure she did her best though... I'll do it next time, pro bono, just call me: NextExitGraffics(dot)com
  • stop it
    oh wow the cover looks stupid... the font is stupid... who the FUCK cares?! it'll be a dope album, he's in a whole other state of mind, fuck wrong with y'all? go listen to Battle Cry get a real opinion of dude... y'all buggin over an album cover LMAO
    • Anonymous
      exactly. the hip hop "fans" online are pathetic. people here going crazy over the art cover. wow. irrelevant
  • PEOPLE WANT THE TRUTH
    Joell blew his album budget on the features and production that he didnt save any for the album cover. Haha he used Microsoft Paint for this WOAT cover. Shady is the illest but a TERRIBLE Label Boss.
    • THE TRUTH
      here i'm is!!! slaughterhouse is signed to shady as a group not as solo artists they drop their solo shit independently or through E1 records and who really gives a fuck about the cover art being simple its not like you were gunna buy it anyway Bye bye!
    • RETURN OF THE TRUTH
      @THE TRUTH You must be Joell Ortiz cause nobody would get that butthurt over a comment. But since you comment of this site, you the weakest in your group bruh.
    • IM IZ THE TRUTH NOT YOU
      I am not joell Ortiz my good man nor was I butthurt over a comment it was simply a response to your ignorance sir good day!
    • EXACTLY
      ^This
  • da1
    This has to be the plainest cover art ever. I seen mixtape covers that had more quality then this. It looks like a modeling ad from Old Navy. Hopefully he doen't rap as lazy as this cover looks. Spitting Burlington Coat Factory bars. At least show us some slippers.

    only good thing about #MIKE BROWN is he didn't have to see or hear this album... Joell actually made a half-good album, once, it's called "The Brick"... Ever since then it's been one embarrassment after another.
    • Anonymous
      half good? that album is an instant classic. not one wack track on there.
    • Anonymous
      word. that album is a classic. this album cover sucks balls but the brick is a dope ass album. idk wtf happnd wit free agent but there was a couple good songs on that too especially battle cry
