Joell Ortiz and Salaam Remi are masters that their respective crafts. Ortiz uses a mic a paintbrush and Salaam is behind the boards creating his works. They have connected to create a new 5 track EP “BoxTalk”.
The duo have brought the old school feel of the boom box era from the 70’s and 80’s. Although it’s brief 5 tracks in length, the project covers a range of vibes from funky break beats to grimey boom bap. Ortiz always comes with top notch lyricism. Salaam Remi produces a textured backdrop for Ortiz to lay lethal rhymes on.
