Joell Ortiz - Hallelujah


As Joell Ortiz and !llmind gear up for Friday’s release of their highly anticipated collaboration album, human, the rapper-producer duo joins forces yet again (with HNHH) to release a new heater for your speakers. In Hallelujah, we find Ortiz in his element as he vomits braggadocios metaphors over !ll’s dark, gritty production. As a member of Shady Records’ elite rap group, Slaughterhouse, Ortiz has mastered the art of lyrical savagery, attacking the defenseless instrumental with the ferocity of a lion on a gazelle. And as he declares, “Guess I’m not one of those ni**as that sold a mill twice. But I’m aight with being the last ni**a that’s still nice!” it’s evident that he smells blood. Be sure to cop human this Friday on July 17.
