    Eve Double R What with Jadakiss and Styles P

    Who was a fan of the Ruff Ryders back in the day? We all remember DMX, The Lox, Swizz Beatz and those Ruff Ryders compilations. For this Throwback Thursday, we’re going to turn our attention to the first lady of Ruff Ryders. Eve always held her own whenever she got on tracks with any of them. This week, the Eve-Olution album was in rotation and it was a dope album. Gangsta Lovin’ and Satisfaction were the two singles released from the album. Gangsta Lovin’ featured Alicia Keys on the hook and Satisfaction was another one of Dr. Dre’s classic beats. For the featured track, we’re going in another direction for…

    Jadakiss Kiss of Death Released 15 Years Ago

    If you follow or know me, I’ve gone through spells where Jadakiss must be heard. The last project from Jadakiss was released in November of 2017. Friday on Elm Street was a collaboration with Fabolous, and it was dope. Kiss of Death was the follow up to his debut, Kiss Tha Game Goodbye. Kiss of Death actually went platinum and was a great album. Jadakiss built anticipation for the album by releasing Time’s Up that spring. Time’s Up was a fast-paced track that saw Jadakiss spitting and the late, great Nate Dogg on the hook. During this time period, you had an instant smash if you got Nate Dogg on…

    Ja Rule New York Featuring Fat Joe and Jadakiss

    Are you ready for another Throwback Thursday? Do you remember when Ja Rule dropped that classic, New York record? It featured Jadakiss and Fat Joe and I’ll admit, that was a classic record. When the record hit, everyone loved it except one person, 50 Cent. 50 Cent thought that since he and Ja Rule are enemies that no one should work with him. After New York, 50 Cent targeted Fat Joe and Jadakiss. Fat Joe responded with one record and said he’ll never respond to another 50 Cent diss. On the other hand, 50 Cent and the Lox went after each other all the time. I’ll be honest, the Lox…

    Fabolous Jadakiss Talk About It Featuring Teyana Taylor

    There are very songs nowadays that impact in hip hop like it used to. Growing up as a fan of hip hop, a lot of the times they used their voice to talk about politics or police brutality. Despite having the Friday On Elm Street album for a while, this song slipped by me. Soul Food and Theme Music were the two tracks that I played the most. Finally, I’ve had the chance to ride around by myself and actually process the entire album from Fabolous and Jadakiss. If you’re someone that loves lyrics, this is the album for you because both greats are spitting. The featured track, Talk About…
