Editors’ Notes

One of the best new MCs to emerge in the post-millennium era, Brooklyn native Joell Ortiz started generating a huge buzz around 2004, earning props from both The Source's Unsigned Hype and XXL's Chairman's Choice, thanks to a breakout mixtape. With his rugged flow, intricate lyricism, projects-bred street sensibility, and smooth wittiness, major labels started hollering, eventually leading to a deal with Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment. Though they eventually parted ways, he kept busy with a steady stream of excellent indie albums, most notably 2007's The Brick: Bodega Chronicles and 2009's Slaughterhouse debut (with Crooked I, Joe Budden, and Royce Da 5'9"). Free Agent finds him working with some of hip-hop's best producers, including Premier, Just Blaze, Large Professor, and Nottz, delivering his potent verses over excellent NYC-centric beats. Everything on here is great, especially the LOX collabo "Put Some Money On It," the single "Sing Like Bilal," and horn-infused romantic joint "Call Me (She Said)."

A dedicated and accomplished student through his early years, and always a person to whom language came easily, Ortiz was an impressive rapper by his early teens. As he reached high school, family strife and his urban environment turned his attentions from his studies and rap career to street life and the drug trade. After...
