After Beyonce released her self-titled album out of the blue (no Ivy) last year, many A-List artists have been rumored to be planning a similar release for their own projects. Perhaps a bigger surprise, though, is that Slaughterhouse are the ones to take cues from Bey, as their new 'House Rules' mixtape dropped unexpectedly like birds--- yesterday (May 21).

At a short but sweet 10 tracks, the project keeps the spotlight firmly on the Shady Records crew with zero guest features. After all, who needs another rapper when you've got all the bars you could possibly want right here? Meanwhile, heavyweights like Nottz, Illmind, Harry Fraud, araabMUZIK and The Heatmakerz provide a buffet of banging beats.

With no label involvement or commercial expectations, 'House Rules' provides the House Gang with the perfect platform to get personal and reflective in their rhymes -- Joe Budden on 'SayDatThen,' Crooked I on 'Illmind Interlude' and Royce Da 5'9" on 'Keep It 100,' especially.

Enjoy 'House Rules' below as we await Slaughterhouse's third album, 'Glass House,' due later this year.
