Joell Ortiz has been super busy over the past year, between dropping his Mona Lisa album with Apollo Brown, BoxTalk EP with Salaam Remi, Gorilla Glue project with The Heatmakerz and Fred the Godson. Today, he’s back with new music in the form of “Learn You.” It’s produced by and features BIG K.R.I.T., and serves as a taste of what’s to come from his next album, arriving August 30th.
“Working with KRIT was super dope! We basically had long conversations over the phone about life and human things for about a week or so before we even talked about music… just vibing,” Joell said. “‘Learn You'” was basically one of those convos turned audio. We talked about how the sacrifices we make to chase dreams are heavy. His production and choice of words in that hook made me tell.”
