Sermon explains his reasoning for choosing the New York greats for the single. “I wanted emcees that were going to represent. Sheek Louch did one of the best verses of his career. It showcases them, and it showcases NY, and it’s a big record,” he says. “You can’t front on this. The beats, the rhymes the chorus, it’s a NY Hip Hop record.”

Along with the “Make Room” visual, Ortiz has been working with Slaughterhouse partner, !llmind for the joint project, Human. The two revealed the 11-track LP, which guest stars Emilio Rojas, Bodega Bamz & Chris Rivers for, “Latino Pt. 2.”
