from The Brick (Bodega Chronicles) (2007, Koch)

Brooklyn’s own Joell Ortiz just dropped “The Brick (Bodega Chronicles)”, a hyper album which features Immortal Technique, MOP, Ras Kass, Noyd, Graph and Stimuli, plus production by The Alchemist, Showbiz (DITC), Fame of M.O.P., Moss and many more. Ortiz’s single, “Brooklyn”, got hella play on radio stations and mixtapes from NYC to Japan. The Source highlighted Ortiz in its “Unsigned Hype” spot, saying, “Joell Ortiz is well on his way…” while XXL recently wrote “His future is looking anything but so-so.”

Ortiz says, “I love this album because I made it while I was going through the industry bullshit of trying to get signed and some tough times, personally. It’s full of pain and rage and you can hear it. It’s a soundtrack to the hood version of David vs. Goliath. That’s the best way to describe it. If you’ve ever gone through some rough waters, this album is for you. It’s the common man’s music. Industry people, so-called ‘cool guys’ and ‘posers,’ don’t get this music and they never will. It’s not for them. It’s for us.” Check out these cuts! Joell is the truth.
