If you’re looking for rhymes about the glamorous life, Joell Ortiz might not be for you. Determined to establish himself as a serious artist, Ortiz asserts that not everyone does what he calls “bubblegum rapping.” Channeling a chill, classic vibe in his ode to the genre, Hip-Hop, this track sounds almost nostalgic, with quick rhymes over a piano melody. Look for more from Ortiz on his Koch Records mixtape The Brick (Bodega Chronicles), out next month.
