Joell Ortiz and his right hand song man Novel lace another soul meets hip-hop collab worth your attention. Ortiz spits some rhymes about working long, unappreciated hours from different jobs and perspectives: including his own. The record has a leisurely pace similar to most early 70′s soul records with a faint sample you may have heard before. Also, don’t let the track’s subject matter and tempo trick you. Ortiz has some rewind worthy punchlines that sneak up on you as usual. It’s a quality mellow record all around so give it a listen.
