Ever Go Through Your Mate’s Phone? Joell Ortiz Shows Why It’s a Bad Idea… (Video)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Joell Ortiz’ masterful storytelling are one of the lyrical attributes that transcended him from a late ’90s, early 2000s street MC into a major label star. Like two of his onetime mentors and label-heads, Eminem and Dr. Dre in 2000’s “Guilty Conscience,” Joell uses his House Slippers moment “Phone” to walk through the set of his stories—showing just how real, in the moment, and vital these matters can be.

Although the video portrays Joell as a third party, the introductory quote and the LP’s themes and openness suggest otherwise. This is some heavy stuff…

2014 was a huge year for Slaughterhouse’s members to make distinct and daring solo works, no?
