After being signed to E1 formally known as Koch since 2007, Joell Ortiz has officially severed ties with the label.

Joell took to twitter, leaving a short message that he is longer signed to E1. This means when Joell’s long awaited second studio album Free Agent is released on November 30th, he will be what the title states, a Free Agent.

This may make the deal with Slaughterhouse to Shady one step closer as Joell mentioned in the past of label troubles holding up the deal.
