As we approach 2012 (and possibly the end of the world) every Hip-Hop fan should be either preparing or commiserating by attending potentially the event of the year, This Is Hip Hop present Underground Kings (Vinnie Paz and Ill Bill) live in Manchester on Saturday 1st December. If that didn’t excite you enough, the Underground Kings are joined by Swifty (D12), Sean Strange, Snowgoons and more.

Since their formation in 2008, Slaughterhouse (Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9, Joell Ortiz and Crooked I) performed their first show together in London, and thanks to Sumit @ The Hip Hop Chronicle we can share some live footage from the event. Playing songs from their first album “Slaughterhouse” each rapper also performed individual freestyles from solo projects, and incorporate a lot of comedy within the show. Slaughterhouse last night performed in Manchester for the second part of their UK visit and reports suggest they were equally as impressive. You can watch the footage from Slaughterhouse – LIVE in London on the youtube player below.

During a recent trip to Manchester I met and interviewed Joell Ortiz during his live performance at the Ruby Lounge on March 9th. I caught up with Joell Ortiz and asked him about the best parts of being with Shady Records than E1 (more money of course) and the plan of releasing the Slaughterhouse album which will hopefully be available later in 2011. I then ask Joell Ortiz about his plans for the rest of the year, and of course what he thought of the U.K Hip-Hop artists (he’s collaborating with Mic Righteous) and the Manchester crowd. You can watch the Joell Ortiz interview with Hip-Hop Kings on the video player below.
