A more than worthy MC in Joell Ortiz takes Drake’s “5 Am In Toronto” to task in a freestyle debuted by Funkmaster Flex. As a proud King’s County native, it was only right that he titled his “5 AM In Brooklyn.”
With that, we receive a barrage of hard body rhymes from the Slaughterhouse rapper, who quite frankly had a lot to get off of his chest.
“Man the whole block changed. This the Hip-Hop game?/Sweet Kool-Aid running through a n—as’ pop veins/ Must a Brooklyn n—a come through again, pop chains, smack n—as, and make them disappear like his pop’s name?,” is an example of where Ortiz took it in four minutes and 27 seconds of pure spitting.
At one point he deems himself the best lyricist out there, and while this is certainly debatable, this freestyle is a hell of a way to claim that title.
