Jadakiss Releases New Tracks on "Consignment"
Mr. Raspy brings New York to the South for new mixtape
As you’d expect, Consignment has an all-star lineup of collaborators including Wale and French Montanna (“Paper Tags”), Young Jeezy (“Trafficking”) and of course Styles P. The duo does their classic rhyme-trading on “Dope Boy,” a slick, minimal track with a touch of 70’s inspiration. 2Chainz steps in to help the duo on the aggressive “Count It” before Jada hops on Swizz Beatz and A$AP Rocky’s “Street Knock.”
Elsewhere, check for “Respect” with Fabolous and Lloyd Banks and solo track “Without You” for a little bit more NY influence, though the latter’s beat is still in the Southern mode. Either way, Jada’s trademark raspy vocals and effortless verses carry the mixtape, allowing him to once again rise above the format and deliver something that isn’t quite on the level of his best albums but is more worth listening to than plenty of other artists’ LPs.
