Covering the Classics


I've been impatiently waiting for this mixtape to drop this after reading about the concept then hearing the leaked tracks.

Brooklyn MC Joell Ortiz drops his Covering the Classics mixtape hosted by DJ Green Lantern, as he reinterprets some of hip-hops greatest records. You'll find original rhymes over classics like Naughty By Nature's "Uptown Anthem," Pete Rock & CL Smooth's "T. and Gang Starr's "Just To Get A Rep" among others.

I haven't heard the whole thing yet, just a few songs here and there, but Ortiz's sharp flow shouldn't disappoint.

Shouts to Ivan for the heads up, Enjoy!
