Joell Ortiz is teaming up with producer !llmind for an entire album, Human, followed quickly by an accompanying "Human" tour. The duo are now a short week away from the release of Human (due out July 17th), with the tour kicking off on the 22nd. In anticipation of the forthcoming collaborative album, we had the duo stop by the HNHH Studios in NYC and cook up a little exclusive. !llmind actually did the beat on the spot, while Yaowa played up his lyricism, dropping bars about his ghost-writing skills and admitting he won't be going double platinum anytime soon-- but as long as he's one of the nicest out (yup) he's good.
Watch the vlog from their studio session below, and cop Human on July 17th.
Turn this shit loud this what New York supposed to sound like
Next time I'm doing radio and I'm around mics
I'm spitting 97 on a Power 105 night
Guess I'm not one of them niggas who sold a mil twice
But I'm aight with being the last nigga that's still nice
No private flights to Coachella overseas
Just a couple of Honey Yaowas yelling in S.O.B.'s
Tearing the fucking stage up
Long as they bring my name up in convos 'bout who flame up
And everybody can say "yup"
I'm waaaaay up, I feel blessed
