Two of New York City’s prolific rappers, Jadakiss and Fabolous join forces on Tory Lanez assisted single, “Rapture.” The title comes from the Anita Baker sample used on the record titled “Caught Up in the Rapture.” Like the true New Yorkers they are, the single is everything an NY Hip Hop record should be. If this is a resurgence of the birthplace of Hip Hop’s sound, I’m all for it! According to Fabulous, “Freddy vs. Jason” is “on the way;” and it comes at a time when Hip Hop needs it.
“But for us it goes back to the strap and the gloves. Back to the birds of the white, we was trapping’ them ducks. Here today, gone tomorrow like a Snapchat for thugs. You gotta keep your circle tight, never let it hula hoop.” (Fabulous)
