Joell Ortiz Announces New Album 'Autograph' With a New Single

By Kiani Belgrave

Brooklyn emcee and Slaughterhouse member, Joell Ortiz, is back with a brand new single and plotting his solo return with his forthcoming sixth solo studio album, Autograph, set to arrive on November 12, 2021. 

The Heatmakerz take over production on the album’s second single, “In My Feelings,” where the emcee offers a passionate verse with no hook, sounding hungrier than ever. 

“'In My Feelings' is exactly that. Audio venting and reminding everyone who I am, my story and how I’m still turning pages” Joell stresses. “My pen moving over Heatmakerz production. No hook. Just real talk.”

Autograph includes some guest verses and production from CyHi The Prynce, KXNG Crooked, Sheek Louch, Apollo Brown, Salaam Remi, and others. 

“My creative process is pretty simple. I write to the music that moves me and speak my truth.  That’s never wavered. Once I feel like I got all of my thoughts out, I put the pen down and listen to everything in its entirety.  That’s usually where I figure out things like title and artwork” Joell says. 

“After listening to this body of work, I realized that I shared a lot of personal feelings, stories, and ideas. Everything is authentic. This is signature me. Hence, the title. Autograph is an album from me to you. The old me, the current me, all of me. As usual, I hope you enjoy.”
