Joell once again demonstrates his ability to rap circles around most any rapper.
The real standouts are “Make It Without You” where Ortiz pays an emotional tribute to his grandmother who passed away and “Stalker” where he tells the story of a woman dealing with a stalker with excruciating detail. It’s great when he bodies “Run This Town” or “World Tour,” but it’s the more creative songs like these that set Ortiz apart from the masses of battle rappers.
Much like his last mixtape, Road Kill is an entertaining listen if you don’t mind being verbally berated for an hour.
