    Now, it's been way too long since we've gotten a full project from Joell Ortiz.

    The last solo project, Free Agent, dropped in 2011 and, along with The Brick: Bodega Chronicles, remains a modern gem. In the meantime, Ortiz gave an astounding showing on Slaughterhouse's Welcome To: Our House, remaining a cornerstone of the group's fierce assault. However, House Slippers is the album that hip-hop fans worldwide have been anxiously awaiting. He lives up to all the promises on the record's title track too.

    The track itself sees Ortiz get autobiographical in the candid and catchy lyrics. His flow remains nothing short of unbreakable as he drops each word with authority and confidence. The production's echo fits the song perfectly, allowing his lyrics to take center stage. He announces, "Feels like I finally found my House Slippers", but he's found a lot more than that. Ortiz slips into a pocket where his lyricism truly shines. He's truly one of the world's most poignant and powerful MC's, and this illuminates that. He explains "what's been up with Joell Ortiz", but what's really thrilling is what's to come.

    Joell Ortiz is everything rap music needs and more. Get ready for House Slippers on the newly revived Penalty Entertainment later this year. Welcome back...
