Editorial Reviews

Joell Ortiz is back with the critically acclaimed emcee's new album, Free Agent. The album features appearances by his Slaughterhouse counterparts, Joe Budden, Royce da 5'9, Crooked I and many others. The foursome was described as "...the game's most imposing lyrical force" by XXL Magazine.

I don't know what the negative review is about...the beats on this album are pretty tight and Joell's lyrics are straight blazin! Dude is one of the nicest and most underrated rappers out. That Battle Cry joint is insane! I'd get the album for that track alone...awesome beat and 100 bars of nonstop fire! If you love hip hop do yourself a favor and cop this album...you'll be thanking yourself for it.
Slaughterhouse!

After over a year of push backs for this album alone, and only his 2nd album released on CD, Mr. Ortiz finally returns with another solo, and it's been WAY too long. His debut solo album was released in April, '07 ("The Brick: Bodega Chronicles") and it was a borderline 4.5/5 star, Great album. Since then, somehow he has managed to been avoided, as far as solo releases were concerned. He put out a few mixtapes and MP3 albums, managed to get signed to Aftermath, only to be dropped before anything was released (a HUGE and rare mistake on their part, as Joell Ortiz is one of the most talented lyricists around, and I've been a huge fan ever since I first heard him on a track way back in 2001). At least his enormous talent was finally recognized and put to its use; as a member of the super-lyricist group Slaughterhouse (him, along with: Royce da 5'9", Joe Budden, and Crooked I), which has been putting out high quality albums and songs since '09. But back to this album, it is everything you would expect from him, and is a very solid 4.5 star effort. With 13 songs on it (1 he isn't on); you get 2 Classics, 2 near classic tracks, 5 good or real good ones, 3 that are ok, and 1 that I skip over (which is the one song Joell isn't on). Guests are on 7 of the songs; rapping on 3 And just doing the hook on the other 4. Production is nice as well, and handled by many different people. Frank Dukes does 2 songs, Just Blaze, DJ Premier, Sean C & LV, Large Professor, DJ Khalil, Frequency, Novel & Mike Herard, Nottz, Knobody, Kenny Dope, Broadway all do 1 song. A must have album from one of the best lyricists around.

#1 - 10 (CLASSIC - Great beat & min. & Half straight of rapping)
#2 - 9.

This album definitely deserves 4.5/5 stars. This is a tight album from east to west, north to south. Ortiz just raised the bar for all emcees on this one which is why he most definitely deserved to be in SLAUGHTERHOUSE. I know that most artists no matter what genre of music can only put out one classic album and never duplicate it and Joell did just that with this one. It might not be a 5 mic album but it's in elite status that he's never been able to come close to duplicating.

I miss the good ol' days when rap was actually about lyrics. If you're a fan of Joell Ortiz, then you know that he's a MONSTER! This album had 1 song on it that was kinda bad, but ALL the rest were great to me! I have no idea why, but I love the song Checkin for ya. Another good song is Sing like Bilal. I have nothing but good things to say about this CD. I'm hoping that there's a part 2 coming soon.

the problem with joell's official debut is that its best that you download the mp3 version of the album. the reason i say that is because there are 2 songs that have EXTENDED VERSIONS of them that are not on this album example: PUT SOME MONEY ON IT of the free agent version of the album is just joell and the lox but theres a SLAUGHTERHOUSE REMIX on the slaughtuerhouse ep, also there is an extra verse on dj premier version of SING LIKE BILAL, which is featured on his year round album. other than those 2 songs the album is dope BATTLE CRY IS THIS ALBUMS GEM. the album is strong buy it

I slept on this cat right here but Joell Ortiz can go. After hearing dude with slaughterhouse I was like who is this. I'm surprise he's not a bigger name in the game but get the album if you like real hip hop lyrical content. When it come to lyricist he's up there with the top dogs.

I been a fan of Joell since Bodega Chronicles, which was a classic in my mind. Free agent falls just a bit short of great mainly because the beats sound somewhat dated. Joell's seems to be not as focused as when he performs with SlaughterHouse, but having said that he still delivers.
