The other day I was kicking it with one of my comrades, and they played a Troy Ave, song feat Fabolous and Jadakiss, and then the discussion came up about who is better Jadakiss or Fabolous? The discussion went further into who is the King of New York? He chose Jadakiss as the King of NY and as the better rapper. I personally couldn’t choose, because I think they are two sides of the same coin. They both come from an era where lyrics were important and you had to be nice to get a deal.
Needless to say we are in a new generation but these two guys have never stop doing what they do best, and that is give us unadulterated bars. People try to say that us guys in our 30’s are living in the 90’s but the music was better in terms of rap music, however you did have your classic wack rappers and wack songs of the 90’s as well. Never the less its a new day, and with Jay-z and Nas being elders in the rap game, people are looking at Jadakiss and Fabolous, two of the dopest MC’s in NY and in my personal opinion Two of the dopest MC’s in the rap game; as to who would be the King of NY in terms of best rapper.
Jadakiss New Album T5DOA is definitely a breath of fresh air and my favorite track on the album is Don’t eat. On the other hand Fab has been killing the mixtapes and his album is coming out this year. The Summertime Shootouts Mixtape is crazy and my favorite track off of that is Done Started Something. I will leave it up to you guys to decide check out the tracks below and let me know who y’all think has the better verse.
