Apollo Brown & Joell Ortiz teamar för album – lyssna på “Decisions”



New York-rapparen Joell Ortiz har genom årens lopp släppt fem egna albumprojekt, utöver sin medverkan på Slaughterhouses skivor. Nu är det dags för sjätte albumet i ordningen då han teamar med Detroit-producenten Apollo Brown för kommande albumet “Mona Lisa”. Skivan gästas av Royce Da 5’9″ och släpps 26:e oktober. Joell Ortiz beskriver första singeln från skivan och dess text:


“Decisions is a song I wrote that talks about and details an actual period in my life. It was during this time that I was consumed by the streets, but fascinated with the idea of being a rapper. I was dealing with certainty and uncertainty. I had one foot in the booth and one foot on the corner. The corner fed my family but the booth fed my soul. As you all know, I ended up leaving the hustle alone and pursuing a music career. It all worked out. Thank God. But this song best describes exactly how I felt during that time and shows you just how much of a battle it actually was to come to what I know now as the right decision.”
