The veteran in Hip Hop artist Joell Ortiz returns with a new project titled 'Autograph,' featuring CyHi The Prynce, KXNG Crooked, Pastor LBS and Sheek Louch. Ortiz states that Everything is authentic, the personal feelings, stories, ideas, so 'Autograph' is an album from  Ortiz to you.

Joell Ortiz is one of the nicest to touch a microphone. It was only suitable to enlist a slew of top producers such as Apollo Brown, The Heatmakerz, Hesami, Namir Blade & Salaam Remi for the project.

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.

The last album Ortiz dropped was the 'Monday' Album in 2019 and his collaborative project with KXNG Crooked, 'H.A.R.D.' in 2020.

Nowadays, it's rare to listen to an album from start to finish without finding songs that don't fit the cohesive whole, rushed production, or lacking penmanship. Since pressing play on 'Autograph,' I've yet to skip a track or feel disconnected from the art in any way; I get that music is genuinely subjective, but kudos to the producers, features and Ortiz for giving this project a complete vibe, sound and tone.
