Slaughterhouse ft. Fat Joe "Goodbye" Remix

Slaughterhouse enlisted Fat Joe to join the supergroup for a remix of “Goodbye.” The cut lives on their second collaborative studio effort “welcome to: OUR HOUSE,” available now on iTunes.

This rendition goes out to the late Chris Lighty. A bereaved Joey honors the life and lessons of his mentor in a touching opening verse. The Slaughters follow up on the ballad, making an already emotion-evoking track that much more personal and sentimental.

May Chris Lighty R.I.P.

Grab your Kleenex, and take a listen after the jump.
