Music video[edit]

A Music video for "Throw That" was revealed by Joe Budden, on Shade 45, with 50 Cent's DJ, DJ Whoo Kid on November 30, 2012. The videos release date has not yet been confirmed, but is expected to be released sometime in Spring 2013. Joe Budden stated the video will feature some special guests.

"We will all basically be playing characters in this video. This video is very exciting, because Slaughterhouse has never done something like this before, you know. We are all just trying out something new, we are just having fun. Anyway, as I was saying we all will be playing different characters, like we are all experimenting on things that we have never done before in this video. I don't want to give too much away, but as far as that, I am just excited about it. We got some more special stuff too in the new year, but I'm not allowed to speak on it at the moment."

However a year had passed since the song's release with no video being released.

Critical reception[edit]

David Jeffries of AllMusic highlighted it and overviewed it positively: "Still in the club, "Throw That" sits in the same booth but seeking "higher mileage" with "I throw this, I throw this dick on you girl" as its brutish hook."[1] Slava Kuperstein of HipHopDX thought that the song was skippable.[2] Spin Magazine was acclaiming noting that it expertly channels the disorderly energy of iconic late-'90s Tunnel-era anthems.[3] DJBooth noted that "You don’t have Em on the hook of a stripper anthem like Throw That without some hit aspirations" and critic thought that the song was "squeezed in a box."[4]
