Joell Ortiz - Farewell Summer EP
Joell Ortiz has been a rhyme juggernaut the last couple years, dropping verse after verse on mixtape after mixtape. Whether it be solo or with Slaughterhouse, he has consistently proved himself to be head and shoulders above all other MCs on the mic today. Farewell Summer gives us five tracks to tide us over until the long-awaited Free Agent mixtape drops. This would be worth it just for for the opening Murder, with its nasty Guru sample, but the four others are pretty decent, too, including a remix of Sing Like Bilal from Primo with Sheek Louch and a Skillz-esque recap of the summer of 2010 with the closing title track.
