It looks as if Jadakiss is taking notes from his LOX compadre Styles P and even Brooklyn’s Fabolous for his latest freestyle “Where I’m From.” Jadakiss has linked up with The Breakfast Club’s DJ Envy for a weekly freestyle session. Here Jada goes over Jay Z’s classic “Where I’m From” cut. Listen after the jump.
Fabolous’ ongoing #FridayNightFreestyles has been a relative success thus far but with this new one right here it’s either make it or break it for how you feel about Loso. Sure, he’s already gone over an undisputed classic in his “B.A.S.” freestyle but Mobb Deep’s 1994 cut “Shook Ones Pt. II” is a milestone/watershed moment for hip-hop. It’s such a statement in hip-hop culture that even one iconic Detroit rapper Eminem has stated numerous times that its had a profound impact on him. In fact, you may recall Eminem’s “B-Rabbit” character from 8 Mile rapping over the track during his final freestyle battle. Anyway, if Loso doesn’t deliver and do this classic instrumental justice then his whole #FridayNightFreestyles is moot. You be the judge after the jump.
Fabolous is continuing his weekly streak of dropping some freestyle heat. He has blessed us with a freestyle over Dr. Dre’s “B***hes Ain’t Sh*t” from his seminal 1992 album The Chronic then he gave us “Told Ya’ll.” This week Fab is sharing “Take It Easy” where he goes over Mad Lion’s 1994 original. Check it out after the jump!
Last week Fabolous hit us with that unexpected freestyle over Dr. Dre’s “B***hes Ain’t Sh*t” from his seminal 1992 album The Chronic. This week he’s serving us up with yet another freestyle in “Told Ya’ll.” Check it out after the jump.
Fabolous can’t seem to escape the past. Throughout his career Fab has worked in references to the old school; sports, music, culture, video games, clothing, etc. You name it, Fab has somehow managed to squeeze it into his bars. His most recent project The Young OG Project in it of itself was riddled with nostalgia. So it only makes sense for the Brooklyn emcee to continue with this on his “B.A.S Freestyle.” In case you didn’t get the reference via the art above, it’s Fab going over Dr. Dre’s song “B***hes Ain’t Sh*t” from his 1992 debut album The Chronic. Check it out after the jump.
New Jersey’s Fetty Wap is blowing up thanks to his breakout single “Trap Queen.” And naturally, everyone is jumping on it to either remix or freestyle. First we had one exclusively done by French Montana which prompted Atlanta’s Quavo (of the Migos) to jump on it, too. Now, Fabolous is contributing a verse to the French Montana remix of “Trap Queen.” Listen after the jump.
Back in October Rich Homie Quan dropped the video for “Blah Blah Blah,” a track that first appeared on his breakout mixtape from 2013, I Promise I Will Never Stop Going In. The video finds Quan flexin’ alongside Young Thug and Birdman. Now Quan is unleashing the feature heavy remix with Fabolous, DeJ Loaf and Ty Dolla $ign. Peep the official “Blah Blah Blah” remix after the jump.
Fabolous’ new project The Young OG Project is due out December 25th and today he’s sharing its first single, “Lituation.” Listen to his new cut from the forthcoming Young OG Project after the jump.
Right after everybody’s cousin, uncle and auntie jumped on this beat…there was a real remix. Jadakiss is on it. Check. Fabolous is also on it. Check two. R&B’s own bad boy Chris Breezy too? Awww…it’s about to get violent. Throw in Busta Rhymes’s occasional Jamaican talk for fun. There’s no way to go wrong with such strong veteran presence mixed with an appealing beat to disguise some slowing spitters.
