Joell Ortiz is just days away from dropping his new album House Slippers. After releasing his single with B.o.B & Mally Stakz yesterday, the Slaughterhouse rapper decided to drop the official stream of his new body of work. Recently, Ortiz explained where he got the unique title for the album to HNHH.
“The way I came up with ‘House Slippers’ was, when I listen to the album, I’m not afraid, man,” he said. “I’m very comfortable with myself. I don’t care what anybody’s gonna think. This is the first time I can honestly say that. I don’t care if they go, ‘Word? That happened?’ or ‘He’s okay with sayin’ that?’ I don’t care! In so many ways, this album is only for me. But I swear it’s gonna be for everybody who feels like me. Once I found my comfortable place as a human being, I wanted to find a name that equated that comfort. When are you most comfortable, Joell? Sitting on my couch, in my house slippers, with the remote in my hand, just doing what I want to do.”
Executive producers The Heatmakerz constructed twelve fresh instrumentals for the album. Ortiz throws down some serious bars with the likes of Maino, Sahlance and the full Slaughterhouse squad of Joe Budden, Crooked I and Royce Da 5’9. Though Ortiz’s solo album is set to impress the fans, we’re still patiently waiting on Slaughterhouse’s highly-anticipated album Glasshouse. Stream House Slippers here and be sure to cop the album September 16th.
