Joell Ortiz Only Wants To Rap, Ebro Wants An Interview & Awkwardness Ensues! [VIDEO]

Brooklyn native, Joell Ortiz from rap group, Slaughterhouse joins Ebro In the Morning. Joell talks about upcoming projects and how the emergence of Total Slaughter has taken over the focus of the group, for now.

Ortiz talks about being tired of doing interviews where he is asked if he can rhyme, because that should have an obvious answer.  Which is why his single is called "Music Saved My Life". He takes it very literal, and takes pride in his rhymes.
