Joell Ortiz and !llmind Announce Collaborative Album
Hip-hop veterans Joell Ortiz and !llmind announce their upcoming collaborative project, Human, due out July 17. With the project, Ortiz gives a more introspective performance and transforms into more of a storytelling mode than the straight bars we have heard from him on the Slaughterhouse projects. "Human is a fun album for me. First time I worked with one producer on an entire project. Shout out to ILL Mind for seeing this vision with me and creating the awesome music!! It's a very honest and raw album," says Ortiz, "I take you through all the human emotions through storytelling and good rhyming (in my opinion). Every record makes you feel a way. Love it or hate it, but you will FEEL it. Really excited to get this out to the people."
The first single from Human is due out next week. With features from Emilio Rojas, Bodega Bamz and Chris Rivers, a heavy latin MC presence is felt. Check out the full tracklist below and be on the lookout for more on Human in the coming weeks:
