Download Playboy Tre’s “Work,” Featuring Joell Ortiz


Fresh from a triumphant Highline Ballroom show Tuesday night, avowed Brooklyn gentrification adversary Joell Ortiz teams up with Atlanta rapper Playboy Tre, whose Liquor Store Mascot was one of the best mixtapes of 2009, and who is better at saying the word MAAAAAAAN than anyone on earth.
