Joell Ortiz puts bars over business in "Rap Millionaire."
Joell Ortiz links up with New Jersey producer !llmind on the brand new track "Rap Millionaire." The Slaughterhouse rhymer makes it clear that he's well aware of his biggest strength as a rapper, and what he lacks in mainstream popularity he more than makes up with in pure lyrical ability.
Like fellow group member Joe Budden, Ortiz seems to roll with the mentality that while lyricism may be slipping out of the current musical zeitgeist. Speaking of Budden, did Joell take a shot at Joey with this line? "Except for the real ones that got a true love for hip-hop, you know the ones that don't do love and hip-hop."
Fortunately for fans of pure bars, Ortiz professes to make music for those the ones who respect his craft, likening his technical prowess to the legendary Muhammad Ali.
I used to trap singles,
I had the metro boomin' before the future of rap was trap singles
And to homeboy talkin' you on my radar
You hang with A&Rs my dudes hang clips from ARs
