Joell Ortiz Sticks To The Script In “Phone” Video
This is a parable for the digital age. In a classic case of 'be careful what you wish for, the main character in Joell Ortiz's "Phone" video can't keep his hand off of his girl's iPhone. Of course, he doesn't like what he finds, and the scene descends into a grisly case of domestic violence. Now, the Latin quarter of Slaughterhouse drops off the faithful video adaptation, where the betrayal comes to life and the kids needs to cover their ears. The cut—taken from Ortiz's Heatmakerz-helmed House Slippers—plays out like the too-familiar tragedy it is.
