Joell Ortiz recently spoke about his new "Free Agent" album leaking on the internet this week and what exactly his contract obligation is to E1 Music (formally KOCH). The Slaughterhouse member says that he is looking to move and sign with a label that he says, shares the same vision as he does.
"I'm moving forward," he said in an interview. "I'm in a different phase of career. I'm no longer on E1 as an artist, to be honest with you. I'm doing new music [and] I been handed in that album…I'm just looking for a partner right now, not even a label deal — someone that believes in my music. Yesterday's thing is yesterday's thing…My fans are genuine fans, they will follow Slaughterhouse wherever we go…So, as far as the album, that will not effect what we do in the future [with it leaking]. I don't stop recording. This is what I do for a living. I could put another album out again tomorrow if I wanted to." (XXL Mag)
