Following the release of rap super-group Slaughterhouse‘ mixtape On The House and Shady debut long player Welcome To Our House the crew’s individual members have been dropping a steady stream of freestyles and new material.
Latest in, is the group’s Brooklyn representative Joell Ortiz dropping some bars over two minutes of G.O.O.D. Music’s recent smash “Clique“.
Listen To: Joell Ortiz – “Clique” (Freestyle)
Personally Joell’s voice and rapping style has always grated on me a little and this freestyle as a whole leaves me quite underwhelmed. Whilst he adds muscle to Hit Boy‘s beat, it seems to me that the muscular nature of his bars also weighs him down. Despite being in many ways the superior rapper, technically speaking, Joell didn’t navigate the track half as nimbly as someone like Big Sean did.
