Joell Ortiz’s third solo album, House Slippers, is a transformation for the Slaughterhouse MC. Now signed to Penalty Records, the Brooklyn artist claims he’s made the freest album yet, with a celebration of life’s blessings, as well as his recent focus on health and happiness. With that, the artist who notably made Covers The Classics a few years back, uses a song to breathe thanks and positivity about what music’s done for him. The former street-tough admits, “Music Saved My Life.”

On a Heatmakerz beat unlike the sounds from the Harlem, New York duo that Heads might be used to, Joell invites another underground-turned-mainstream sensation in Bobby Ray. B.o.B. blesses the chorus, with a verse of thanks as well. Both men, who veer in and out of genre (Joell regularly covers Michael McDonald’s regulating 1983 hit at shows) make their love clear, and dedicate this moment to the arts. This was premiered by Power 106’s DJ Envy, with some fresh tags on there:
