Joell Ortiz and Apollo Brown are about to drop their upcoming Mona Lisa album on October 26th, and a new single from the project has surfaced. "Timberlan'd Up" finds Joell Ortiz teaming up with Royce Da 5'9", while Apollo Brown provides a smooth backdrop tailor-made for an emcee's pen.
Fans may take pleasure in the half-Slaughterhouse reunion, which finds Royce Da 5'9" and Joell Ortiz once again trading bars. The collaboration arrives in the wake of a renewed interest in the lyrical supergroup; Eminem's recent "Kamikaze Interview" found him opening up about the unfinished sophomore Slaughterhouse album, leading optimistic fans to hope for a late-game rally. In any case, it's nice to hear the former collaborators indulge in sheer lyricism, especially with Apollo Brown behind the boards.
You ever try to play with me, must be A.D.D
You'll have to hire Triple-A just to fly to A3C
How can you kill a man who ain't socially as psychotic as?
I wrote this beat on papyrus on a pyramid in B.C.
