Apollo Brown & Joell Ortiz – Decisions

Apollo Brown and Joell Ortiz are working on a forthcoming joint album called Mona Lisa and now they come through with the first song “Decisions.”

Brown said this about the LP:

“In my ears, this is what the painting Mona Lisa sounds like. The music is straightforward. That’s all I ask for when I’m the listener, so that’s all I give when I’m the creator. No bullshit. None. I provided the canvas, and Joell provided the honest brushstrokes. This album is a relatable body of work that everyone can listen to and appreciate. It’s growth within a gold frame. Open your ears and enjoy.”

Joell added some thoughts about the song saying:

“It was during this time that I was consumed by the streets, but fascinated with the idea of being a rapper. I was dealing with certainty and uncertainty. I had one foot in the booth and one foot on the corner. The corner fed my family, but the booth fed my soul. As you all know, I ended up leaving the hustle alone and pursuing a music career. It all worked out. Thank God! But this song best describes exactly how I felt during that time and shows you just how much of a battle it actually was to come to what I know now as the right decision.”
