New York hip-hop is showing some team spirit.
First up, Fabolous and Jadakiss are joining forces for their forthcoming Freddy Vs. Jason mixtape as announced by Fabo on his Instagram (Feb. 28). “Freddy Vs. Jason coming soon,” the Brooklyn rep wrote alongside a photo of him and Jada.
Last year, the raspy-voiced Yonkers spitter delivered his fourth album Top 5 Dead or Alive, which hit No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Meanwhile, Fab rolled out the Summertime Shootout mixtape and his Friday Night Freestyles series. The two have appeared together on tracks like Jeezy’s “OJ” and Troy Ave’s “Do Me No Favors.”
That’s not all the East Coast has in store — reunited Terror Squad mates Fat Joe and Remy Ma recently shared the title of their upcoming joint album. “The name of the album is called Platas o Plomo,” Joey Crack said on N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s Drink Champs podcast. As RapUp points out, “platas o plomo” (which translates to “Money or Bullets”) is also a quotable from Pablo Escobar in the Netflix smash Narcos.
Rem and Joe — both Bronx natives — also unveiled the first cut off their independent release called “All The Way Up,” co-starring French Montana.
Release dates for both joint projects are yet to be announced.
