Apollo Brown and Joell Ortiz decide to release a remix for ‘Timberlan’d Up’ and add Royce Da 5’9″ and KXNG Crooked.
Detroit producer Apollo Brown has made a name for himself as one of Hip-Hopâ€™s most legendary new producers; while maintaining a golden era sound. His production credits are a whoâ€™s who of Hip-hop greats from Danny Brown, Skyzoo to Ghostface Killah, Ras Kass to Westside Gunn. Even Chance the Rapper used a pair of Apollo beats on his debut mixtapes. Known for bringing the best out of musicians, Apollo has a knack for making timeless classics.
Brooklynâ€™s Joell Ortiz started on none other than Dr. Dreâ€™s Aftermath label and built a huge buzz in the industry. Heâ€™s worked with legends like Just Blaze among others. He then signed to Shady Records as Â¼ of the supergroup Slaughterhouse. Heâ€™s worked with Hip-Hop titans Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Akon, and Big Daddy Kane.
Now the pair of Hip-hop luminaries have their first collaborative album on Mello Music Groupâ€”and itâ€™s nothing short of a masterpiece: Mona Lisa.
A few days ago the duo released the third and final single, â€œReflection,â€ from Mona Lisa before itâ€™s released on 10-26-18. On the eve of his first post Slaughterhouse release, Joell took time to reflect on the state of the music industry and touched on the Slaughterhouse split â€œtook a sec to accept that next time Iâ€™m on the road, wonâ€™t be no Crook, wonâ€™t be no Royce, wonâ€™t be no Joe.â€
While Joell may no longer be able to count on seeing his Slaughterhouse brethren with him on the road, today he reconvenes with Â¾ of The House for the â€œTimberlanâ€™d Upâ€ remix featuring Royce Da 5â€™9â€ and KXNG Crooked. â€œTimberlanâ€™d Upâ€ was initially premiered by Complex.Main playlist with id Timberland Up (Remix) does not exist!Main playlist with id Timberland Up (Remix) does not exist!
