Being a fan of both Fabolous and Jadakiss since the late 90s (the Lox/DJ Clue era) I was seriously hyped about this new album. We have previously seen such duos recently from Jay Z and Kanye West‘s Watch The Throne, Drake & Future‘s What A Time To Be Alive and most recently Future and Young Thug‘s Super Slimey. Most of the time they work, the other time….
The Freddy vs. Jason concept is an epic one as the 2003 movie revealed. Originally Freddy vs. Jason was the title of a the album, renamed later to Friday on Elm Street (which is a combination of the Friday the 13th slasher film series and Nightmare on Elm Street slasher film series).
The opening track F vs J really sets the mood for this showdown Freddy-vs-Jason style. Unfortunately after that the idea seems to be relegated to the background. It then becomes a BARS-R-US fest from then on.
The standout tracks for me were Theme Music, Soul Food and Talk About It.
