Apollo Brown and Joell Ortiz ‘Mona Lisa’ Album: Listen to New Songs With Royce 5’9″ and DJ Los
The new LP, which is one Brown and Ortiz announced toward the end of August, is one that fuses the best of Ortiz's gritty lyricism with Brown's production. They forecasted the LP with the release of "Decisions," a track that finds Ortiz exploring whether he should dive further into the street life or focus on his rap career.
"Decisions, decisions, writtens are sick in the kitchen/Rhyme flex or Pyrex, shit, which is your vision?/Hit the block or book a studio block/Push all the rock or push yourself to rock a number one spot, hmm/Hit 'em with that bounce and find a nice pocket/Or stash another 8-ball in your side pocket," Ortiz spits on the track.
Speaking on the tune, Ortiz said it was one where he transported himself to his past on the streets. "This song best describes exactly how I felt during that time and shows you just how much of a battle it actually was to come to what I know now as the right decision,” Ortiz said of the song.
