This was a super quick EP at only 5 songs from Joell and Salaam. It goes without saying that Joell Ortiz can rap circles around most MCs and that is no different on this project. He definitely smashes the mic and almost even sounds a little reinvigorated on here. He reps NY correctly every time he grabs the mic. The beats were pretty decent on here as well. One thing that seemed evident on here was that it seems like the project wasn’t mixed or mastered well. It just didn’t sound very well from a technical perspective. I don’t know if this was the angle they were going for, but it was a bit distracting to the listener. I almost hate to think that Joell Ortiz has gone from putting out supreme mixtapes and albums both solo and with Slaughterhouse to now putting out short EPs that aren’t even mastered right. I don’t want to be in a world where that is true. Hopefully this is just a quick project to keep the streets fed until we get a full length project.


OVERALL RATING: 3 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
