Royce 5’9 Drops A Heat Rock. Joell Ortiz Sayz 2 Can Play That Game (Audio)

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, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to 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.

Today (May 23), both Joell Ortiz and Royce 5’9 dropped fresh material, shaking up things in what has otherwise been a relatively quiet week for major new releases. On “iLL,” Royce joined Conway The Machine and DJ Green Lantern for some Get Out-inspired madness, while his Slaughterhouse cohort’s offering is a solo loosie that also references a recent cultural touchstone: Kermit The Frog memes.

On “God Forbid,” a Heatmakerz-produced record that features Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam atop the Brooklyn Bridge in its artwork, Joell bullies the mic. ” I hope they learnin’ while I’m spittin’/Somebody better tell ’em, they ain’t heard that I was different/Let a frog jump and I’ma burn him with the Smith N’/Have his man standing there like Kermit with the Lipton,” he raps, referencing the ubiquitous meme featuring Kermit The Frog sipping tea.

It’s been over a year since Joell dropped his last solo project, That’s Hip-Hop, though that may soon change. Ortiz comes for the necks of lesser rappers throughout the scalding track, perhaps to give them fair warning before he releases a new body of work. God forbid they don’t listen.
