Joell Ortiz – “Captain” (Prod. by The Heatmakerz)

Brooklyn’s Joell Ortiz started on none other than Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label and built a huge buzz in the industry.  He’s worked with legends like Just Blaze among others. He then signed to Shady Records as ¼ of the super-group Slaughterhouse. He’s worked with Hip-Hop titans Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Akon, and Big Daddy Kane. 

Joell Ortiz’ previous project on Mello Music Group, Mona Lisa, was a collaborative effort with Apollo Brown (who also returns to produce two tracks onMonday) and it made quite an impact at retail upon its release; premiering at #3 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart, it also premiered at #3 on the Amazon Hip-Hop chart and held down the #1 spot on Bandcamp’s bestseller list. 

Today, Joell returns with his second single, “Captain,” which is produced by The Heatmakerz and follows the lead-single, “Learn You,” which featured and was produced by Big K.R.I.T.  “Captain” was exclusively premiered by Vibe. 

“It always feels good to tell a dope beat and what’s been on my mind” Joell stated to Vibe.  “My oh my how times have changed; Enjoy the rapping”. 

Joell’s new album, Monday, features production from Big K.R.I.T., Nottz, Apollo Brown, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League & Heatmakerz and will be released on 8-30-19 by Mello Music Group.
