"Appreciate Ya", the latest leak from Joell Ortiz, proves that real lyricism is still alive and well. In true rapper's rapper fashion, the NY MC unleashes a flood of dope bars and slick metaphors over a soulful production laced by the often overlooked Heatmakerz.
The song, which was premiered by Funkmaster Flex, also features audio of an old Funk Flex interview with Kanye West and Pusha T, where both Ye and Push praise the Slaughterhouse member's lyrical capabilities. Mr. West even calls Ortiz "fresh."
How fresh do you think this new joint from Joell Ortiz is?
I'm adding up to all these rap addicts
I don't want to divide dough
So multiplied flow
And divide maggots
Like a brand new Craftmatic
I'm back at it
