Joell Ortiz – “Joell Christopher”

By Raj / 10.01.10

Even though Album Of The Year didn’t quite meet the lofty aspirations that the title set, there is a consolation prize. Rap Radar will soon be releasing Mixtape of the Year, hosted by your favorite voice over duo, DJ Drama and DJ Green Lantern. With double time chattering, the first leak from the project features Joell Ortiz mercilessly wrecking Reflection Eternal’s “In This World.”

I was initially doubtful about anyone’s ability to match Talib’s original fiery vocals, but if there were an emcee I would pin to keep up with him, it would be fellow New Yorker Joell. And to the surprise of absolutely nobody, Mr. Yaowa delivers soundly. For those of you that know his material well, the guy has so many different flows and inflections, nothing ever sounds stale or reused. And after dropping so many songs this year and just releasing a mixtape, this one is still something completely original.
