Joell Ortiz & Frequency - Road Kill mix tape
What kind of bizarro world are we living in that Joell Ortiz is not the biggest thing in hip-hop? Much like fellow twin Titan Sean Price, he kills every track he appears on. P has been on the low for a minute (but poised for a return) but Ortiz has been everywhere. Post Aftermath, he's dropped a couple mix tapes and linked up with Slaughterhouse, not to mention the bazillion freestyles that pop up on the web with alarming frequency. Frequency produced the majority of the Slaughterhouse mix tape you can get from the gents on tour and reprises that role on Road Kill. Freq comes with great beats and mixing, but with Ortiz on the mike, it's hard to go wrong. You won't find anything bad here except for the motherfucker on the mike. Pick it up here immediately and face the inevitable: Joell Ortiz will be king of the rap game very, very soon.
