The Lox borrow Rick Ross’ “Santorini Greece” and take it for a ride around the block.
TALIB KWELI & STYLES P FEAT. JADAKISS, SHEEK LOUCH & NIKO IS – NINE POINT FIVE (PRODUCED BY MARCO POLO)
On April 14, Talib Kweli and Styles P will release their collaborative effort The Seven. With the announcement comes “Nine Point Five” with the assistance of Sheek’s Lox brethren and Niko Is with Marco Polo providing the beat. This joint goes.
That Biggie and Faith project that Faith Evans talked about a few years ago is finally coming to fruition as the first single from The King & I comes in the form of the Jadakiss-assisted “NYC.”
Fabolous and Jadakiss eschew the frightening overture of their “Freddy vs. Jason” mixtape and smooth it out with Tory Lanez on “Rapture.” Don’t worry, there will be vicious bars to come soon enough. For now, you’ll just have to endure the silky smoothness of the song.
Juelz Santana is back with a vengeance and has been dropping nothing but heat for the past few weeks. This time around he rounds up a group of legends on “Ol Thang Back” that finds Santana rhyming alongside Method Man, Redman, Busta Rhymes and Jadakiss.
Jadakiss is recruited by DJ Absolut for a ride to “Magic City.”
Allen Iverson and rapper Jadakiss have been forever linked since those famous Reebok Answer commercials (hyping the A5 and A6, remember?) during the height of AI’s NBA appeal.
Last Friday in Philadelphia, the two were once again in the same room, this time for the Mitchell & Ness Block Party, along with other celebs like Larry Hughes and Fabolous.
AI and ‘Kiss sat down for a brief interview before heading out to mingle with fans, and while they discussed hoops, rap and their most recent Reebok sneaker collaboration, the most interesting snippet from their sitdown comes right off top, when Jada asks Allen to name his top 5 NBA players.
Iverson starts with, “Mike, Shaq, Kobe, LeBron…” before struggling to come up with a fifth name. Eventually, ‘Kiss bails him out by asking him to simply name the current NBA players he enjoys watching—a list that includes, in Iverson’s words, “Steph, Westbrook, Kyrie, Durant, Melo, that list goes on and on.”
(It’s not the first time AI has heaped praise on guys like Kyrie, Curry and Westbrook.)
Next, the attention turns to Iverson’s top 5 rappers. And again, he names four MCs right away. “You [Jada], B.I.G., Redman, ‘Pac…,” he says, before following with a similarly long list of candidates for spot No. 5: “Nas, Jay-Z, 3000, T.I.P., Jeezy, Em, that list can go on for days, man.”
Styles P, Sheek Louch and Jadakiss team up with Miami’s finest in an attempt to get you to feel their pain.
Styles P, Sheek Louch and Jadakiss are always good for some bars and they allow J-Doe to get in on the fun and find out “What Happens?”
Jadakiss gets greasy over the TM88 production provided for Mistarogers on “I Wanna Be The Man.”
