We tend to love everything Joell Ortiz and L'Orange put out, and now the two hip hop artists have a collaborative album coming out. The first single off that album, "OG," is out now, and you truly need to hear it. L'Orange's production style is usually a lush and full style, but "OG" is stripped down to the bare minimum. It has this foreboding bass hum pretty much all through the song along with a quiet beat. Just to keep it more foreboding, there is this occasional burst of guitar noise that just lingers... and lingers. The intensity of the song is mostly from Ortiz's vocals. This is an intense and compelling song that changes the game for two of our favorites.
You can watch the video for "OG" below. Signature is due out August 11 on Mello Music Group, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Joell Ortiz, check out his Instagram. L'Orange can be found on Instragram here.
