Apollo Brown & Joell Ortiz – Mona Lisa (iTunes Stream + Purchase)


This may just be 2018’s album of the year! YES, WE SAID IT!!!

Apollo’s production is beautiful, hypnotic, soulful, and just plain and simply, Hip-Hop!!!

Joell’s bars leaving you strongly reconsidering your Top 5 DOA as he drops gem after gem in the booth!

Joell is an open book on this project and some of his words are extremely honest and touching (‘Reflections’, ‘Grace of God’, ‘That Place’).

Crazy how this man has been so strongly overlooked despite having deals with Aftermath and Shady in the past?!?!?

A truly phenomenal project that I am 100% happy to certify an AUDIO DOPE CLASSIC!!!

Apollo Brown & Joell Ortiz – Decisions (Stream)


Apollo Brown and Joell Ortiz have recently announced their dropping a collaboration project together, called ‘Mona Lisa’, and the whole of Hip-Hop’s collective jaws have dropped!

Apollo Brown has provided the culture with mad classics (including Ghostface Killah’s ‘The Brown Tape’) and Ortiz has been dropping lyrical gems for years, as a solo artist and member of Slaughterhouse, so this project is expected to raise the bar big time!!!

The first drop from the project is called ‘Decisions’ and it’s exactly what you would expect from the two!!!
