01. Intro
02. Murder (Prod. by Statik Selektah)
03. Battle Cry (Prod. by The Audible Doctor)
04. Sing Like Bilal (Remix) (feat. Sheek Louch) (Prod. by DJ Premier)
05. So Wrong (feat. Talib Kweli, Brother Ali & Jean Grae) (Prod. by Frank Dukes)
06. Farewell Summer (Prod. by Don Cannon)

This is a really impressive EP IMO, just listened to it and very much enjoyed it. Featuring great production from the likes of Statik Selektah and Premier, but a surprise steal of the show by the Audible Doctor (at least to my tastes), as well as a 'So Wrong' track that couldn't be more right with its guest spots. This Farewell Summer EP is definitely a nice way to kickstart winter.

Incredible production on this track, similar to Beanie Sigel's 'Feel it in the Air' makes this the best Joel Ortiz track I've ever heard in recent memory. I know dude has some nice lines and I've checked his material in the past, but I've never taken him very seriously as someone who can really create a great track, but with this production behind him, I'm becoming more of a fan even though I enjoyed the Slaughterhouse opus. I'm more of a Royce fan myself.

Beanie Sigel - Feel it in the Air:

Classic track, IMO.
