The plight of Joell Ortiz is well documented. An immense underground buzz helped the Aftermath first-round draft pick find a place at the label of Busta Rhymes, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre and Eminem.  Once Coach Dre and his rookie-of-the-year had their falling-out, however, it was back to the underground for the Brooklyn bully. On Can’t You Tell, Ortiz sums up his time with the West Coast legend; “I got the voice of a champ, flow like the levee broke/Fadeaway/I bet a Dre publishing check, you won’t.” Off the forthcoming Free Agent Mixtape, one of the games brightest explains the ins and outs of the industry over a lush beat from Statik Selektah. With a waterfall of melody and a quick scratch sample of Jay-Z, this hustler’s ambition is reminiscent of a certain Latino rapper from the BX.
