With all the Dipset reunion talk lately, it’s nice to see this collaboration from another of New York’s veteran hip hop groups hit the e-waves. Jadakiss and Styles P. join to spit a freestyle over Kanye West’s “So Appalled” track, which featured Jay-Z, Pusha T, Swizz Beatz, RZA and CyHi.
The D-block brethren turn up the grimy a notch or two, as Jadakiss’ signature voice and Styles P.’s flow ring a familiar bell to East Coast rap heads. It’s short of spectacular, and in fact, sounds a bit overpowering over the ethereal sounding track, but for the most part, two of YO’s finest haven’t lost a step.
Also keep an eye on the other third of the trio, Sheek Louch, who is gearing up for his slated-for-December Def Jam solo release, Donnie G, preceded by the recently released mixtape with DJ Green Lantern, Donnie Def Jam: Guerrilla Warfare Vol.1.
