DJ Kay Slay Feat. Joell Ortiz & Dave East
Coming off the release of his 50 Shades Of Slay mixtape, DJ Kay Slay is now transitioning his focus to his next project called The Man In The Mirror, which is coming soon. Looking to kick off the campaign tonight, the NYC DJ decides to come through and share the first single from the project called “Rap Attack” featuring fellow NYC spitters Dave East & Joell Ortiz.
Joell Ortiz is back today with another hot remix. After lending his rhymes to Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” release a couple weeks back, the Slaughterhouse member decides to follow that up by hopping on G.O.O.D Music’s newest signee Desiigner’s hit single “Panda,” which Kanye made extra famous with his “Pt 2” freestyle on The Life Of Pablo.
Summer Sixteen (Remix)
Joell Ortiz is currently putting the finishing touches on a new project at the moment called That’s Hip Hop, which will drop on March 15th and feature the likes of M.O.P, Tony Touch, Chris Rivers, & Kool G Rap.
Kill At Will
Joell Ortiz Feat. Token
Joell Ortiz is working towards a project entitled That's Hip Hop that will feature the likes of M.O.P, Tony Touch, Chris Rivers, & Kool G Rap. Today Ortiz shares one his personal favorites from the album, "Kill At Will," a hard-hitting, up-tempo old-school joint produced by Domingo. "Anytime I get a chance to hop on a beat and just flex with the bars, it's always a good time," Ortiz told HHDX.
Joell Ortiz is teaming up with producer !llmind for an entire album, Human, followed quickly by an accompanying "Human" tour. The duo are now a short week away from the release of Human (due out July 17th), with the tour kicking off on the 22nd. In anticipation of the forthcoming collaborative album, we had the duo stop by the HNHH Studios in NYC and cook up a little exclusive.
Joell Ortiz & !llmind
"If you feel offended, it's probably directed towards you." That's how the newly-formed duo of Joell Ortiz and !llmind describe their latest cut "Lil' Piggies" on Soundcloud. Taken from their upcoming collab album Human, this one's a hard-hitting banger with a firm message for the frauds.
Latino Pt. 2
Joell Ortiz & !llmind Feat. Bodega BAMZ, Emilio Rojas & Chris Rivers
Earlier this week, Joell Ortiz and !llmind announced that they'd be linking up for a joint project called Human, which will be out on July 17th. Here's the first track we've heard from it, a posse cut called "Latino Pt. 2" that features Bodega Bamz, Emilio Rojas and Chris Rivers.
Bang Bang (Remix)
A few weeks back, Troy Ave got a huge feature from 50 Cent on his Major Without A Deal track "Bang Bang," making for quite the enticing album single. Today, Joell Ortiz steps up to the plate to take on the song's powerful beat.
Erick Sermon Feat. Sheek Louch & Joell Ortiz
As of late, Erick Sermon's been in the news more for saying boneheaded things than for his music, but today, he takes us back to what's really important. Calling upon his fellow New Yorkers Sheek Louch and Joell Ortiz, he drops "Make Room," a hard-hitting cut that should satisfy fans of all three.
DUBB Feat. KXNG CROOKED, Joell Ortiz & Fred The Godson
As planned, West Coast spitter, Dubb, releases his new DJ Skee and DJ Whoo Kid-hosted project Perfect Timing. Available on iTunes, the 14-track project features guest appearances from Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Emilio Rojas, Jake&Papa, Fred The Godson, and more.
Showoff Vs. Everybody
Statik Selektah Feat. Joell Ortiz & Joey Bada$$
"Detroit Vs. Everybody" has gradually made its way to gold status, and the song's producer, Static Selektah, is pretty excited about the certification. While the original was obviously a Michigan-centric record, Static invited a couple of New Yorkers to take on the instrumental and put on for their city in honor of the newly gold record.
Fred The Godson Feat. Joell Ortiz
Fred The Godson has been on the remix tip lately, most recently tackling Dej Loaf’s buzzing single “Try Me” & Shmurda’s “Hot Nigga” instrumentals. Tonight, he decides to get back to the original content and release this new track called “Barbarians” featuring Slaughterhouse member, Joell Ortiz. Hopping on this Heatmakerz-produced beat, Fred and Joell show off their lyrical abilities and prove why they’re some of the nicest emcees in the game today. Look for this collab to see life on Fred’s upcoming project, Contraband 2, which is on the way.
"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?
Emilio Rojas Feat. Joell Ortiz
Emilio Rojas is never not working. The rapper always has some sort of project or another in the works, and today, as he prepares to release yet another project, Emilio delivers "Nada" featuring Joell Ortiz.
Stay With Me (Remix)
It seems Joell Ortiz has been feeling these Top 40 tracks lately. Last week the Slaugherhouse MC decided to remix Iggy Azalea's new single "Beg For It" featuring MØ and this week he returns with another pop-y remix, of Sam Smith's heartfelt "Stay With Me."
Beg For It (Remix)
You gotta admit, "Beg For It" is a sick track, so we can't blame Joell Ortiz for wanting to spit over that beat, too. What was once a strictly female-only song now has a bit more balance to it and Ortiz blends so seamlessly into the song that it almost sounds like he was part of the project from the get-go. The nice part about this remix is that everyone from the original—Iggy Azalea and Danish singer, MØ—is in this version, as well. How very sportsmanlike of Ortiz!
Son Of Sam (Remix)
Azad Right Feat. Joell Ortiz & SPNCR
After debuting his project For The Hopeful a few weeks back to reader acclaim here at HNHH, Los Angeles' Azad Right returns with the remix to one of the project's many highlights. On this new edition of "Son Of Sam," Azad is blessed with a standout feature from Slaughterhouse's Joell Ortiz. Give the track a listen and let us know what you think.
Don’t Say Nothing To Me
DJ Kay Slay Feat. Ransom, Sheek Louch & Joell Ortiz
New York hip-hop gets a good look on this new single from the legendary DJ Kay Slay. Featuring a street-ready instrumental from Level 13, "Don't Say Nothing To Me" is packed with quotables. Take a listen to the track, and let us know who's verse impressed you the most on this one. "Don't Say Nothing To Me" is set to appear on Kay Slay's The Original Man mixtape, due out this Tuesday (November 4th). Stay tuned as we continue to cover the project's release.
I Be About It (Remix)
DJ Self Feat. Joell Ortiz
Back in July we heard DJ Self release this banger called “I Be About It”, which featured guest appearances from Maino, Vado, Big Bz, & Uncle Murda. Well it turns out that Self had another verse stashed away from Slaughterhouse member Joell Ortiz, but just decided to release it for us today.
Talib Kweli Feat. Chris Webby & Joell Ortiz
Bottom Feeder Music is working on putting together a compilation album, Gorilla State, and today they've unleashed the first single off it. They round up strong lyricists Talib Kweli, Joell Ortiz and Chris Webby for "Purest Heart" which is produced by Jeremy Greene. Greene builds up the record around a sample. Who spits the best verse on here?
