Joell Ortiz and Apollo Brown release new single “Timberlan’d Up,” featuring Royce Da 5’9″ in which a fragment of Nas’s  “Made You Look” is re-fastened into an entirely new banger, off their upcoming album Mona Lisa,


Ortiz and Apollo also did an exclusive interview with Complex magazine:


“‘Timbalan’d Up’ is the only song on Mona Lisa with a rap feature. I called on my brother Royce da 5’9″ to do what he does bestThe track title is self explanatory. Don’t get stomped on! We give beatings on or off beat.” – Joell Ortiz


“‘Timberlan’d Up’ started with the hook; it guided me to make the beat. It needed to be simple, really simple, and it was a must that it complimented the threat of consequences being stated. Of course, Joell did his thing and the fact that we enlisted Royce to bless the track was both inevitable, and incredible. Listen close to what they say. Both emcees did what they do best, and I wouldn’t be Apollo Brown if I didn’t have one of these joints on Mona Lisa. Bang your head!”


Mona Lisa will be released on Oct. 26 meanwhile, bump the new single below:
