SlaughtaHouse is the first debut studio album Hip hop group Masta Ace Incorporated and the second overall album from Brownsville, Brooklyn rapper Masta Ace. It was released in May 4, 1993 under Delicious Vinyl. The loose concept of the album is addressing the growing trend of violence in hip-hop music at the time. notably from Gangsta Rap. He address this satirically in the over-the-top single "Slaughtahouse".

The album infuses West Coast funk-influenced beats with some rough "New York rhyming". The 2008 repress of the album includes the single "Born To Roll", a bass-heavy remix of "Jeep Ass Niguh". This version became a hit single in early 1994, reaching the Top 25 Billboard Hot 100. The song also presaged a new bass-heavy direction on his next album Sittin' on Chrome.

SlaughtaHouse was mainly produced in-house members of the I.N.C. such as Uneek, Ase One (Masta Ace's producer alias) and the production duo The Bluez Brothers consisting of Lord Digga and Witchdoc.

The album was reissued twice in recent years. The first reissue was released in 2008. the second issue was released in December of 2013 as a deluxe edition with a second disc of 17 additional remixes, accapellas and rarities.
