Joell Ortiz & KXNG Crooked Join Forces For ”H​.​A​.​R​.​D.” EP


Slaughterhouse may be done but that’s not stopping KXNG Crooked and Joell Ortiz from collaborating. The former members of the defunct supergroup have teamed up for a new EP titled H.A.R.D.

“This H.A.R.D. project is an audio painting from me and my brother Crook,” Ortiz said in a press release. “We share similar stories in both life and the music business. The common denominator being the struggle … I suggest you put on your headphones and close your eyes for this one.”

The veteran duo’s eight-track project comes to fans courtesy of Mello Music Group. Production is handled by Erick Sermon, Apollo Brown, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Illmind, Boogeyman and the Heatmakerz. Joell Ortiz also sat together on an online interview/discussion on Crooked’s platform “Crook’s Corner”. Check the video below.
