Fabolous and Jadakiss have been teasing their joint project, Freddy vs. Jason since early 2016, and while the mixtape has yet to come to fruition, the duo has kept anticipation high by dropping off a slew of teasers. For the latest tease off the project, the New York rhymers fly to the south and connect with Future for the new “Stand Up.”
Sticking to the haunting theme of the movie their project name derives from, an ominous sound creeps in and connects with a deep thumping bass. As the bass picks up, Future is right at home as he lays down a catchy hook over the trap-laden Reazy Renegade-produced cut.
Fabolous takes the baton from Future and raps about remaining loyal and sticking to the street code. “Yeah, them people ran up on me, asking me do I know something/ Looked them in they eyes and said if I knew something/ I wouldn’t know nothing,” he raps. “Heard a lot about me/ You ain’t never heard that I told nothing.”
Jadakiss later chimes in with his signature laugh and addresses a fake friend. “All them Bentleys, all them Benzes/ Shit you was doing was senseless/ On the road, we was caking/ The code, you was breaking,” ‘Kiss says. “Get exposed when you faking/ Let you tell it, I’m just hating.”
“Stand Up” follows the previously released “Rapture” featuring Tory Lanez. The duo dropped the Future-assisted track late Monday night (Oct. 30), just hours before Halloween. Fab and ‘Kiss previously told Billboard that they were plotting for a Halloween release but “there’s no rush to it.”
“We’re just taking our time and I think it’s something that people are going to take advantage of no matter when it comes. Of course, you don’t want to wait forever for it,” Fab said. “We don’t want to Detox the situation, but we definitely don’t want to rush it and people be like, ‘Ugh. This is what you guys did after all that time. We’re gonna handle it though.”
