Listen, Stream, Buy, Mp3 Download – “Memorial Day” by KXNG CROOKED & Joell Ortiz (Slaughterhouse). The song was produced by The HeatMakerz.
Slaughterhouse may not be around anymore, but that doesn’t mean the boys can’t still put in work. As fans of the supergroup are likely aware, KXNG Crooked and Joell Ortiz are gearing up to drop off a collaborative project called H.A.R.D, from which the title track has already been released; if you missed that, check it out right here. Now, the pair have come through with another drop off the album in “Memorial Day,” a track that finds both emcees in a contemplative state.
As explained in an official press release, the sombre track pays homage to those who lost their lives in 2020, a particularly hard year for both parties. “November 11th, 2019 my friend and fellow Long Beach rapper Bad Azz died,” explains Crook. “2020 brought more depth into my personal life when my Father passed and then my children’s grandmother. Cali mourned the deaths of Kobe, GG and all the passengers in that fatal helicopter crash. The globe mourns for those lost to the Coronavirus.”
