The Bay’s famed work ethic means theres a steady ton of albums produced weekly, the 30% or so that aren’t by Messy Marv are quite often collaboration ones in an effort to pool fanbases and most of those are by Mob Figaz members. Yet despite this Husalah and Jacka, one of rap’s great unofficial duos in the Rae & Ghost/Styles & Jada/40 & B-Legit mould, somehow never managed to get it together for even a sloppy, disappointing true joint long player. Technically its possible they could both still do it I suppose but considering prior to doing porridge Husalah was given a 6 month grace period to “get his musical affairs in order” ie: record a truckload of songs, his prolific recording run whilst on the actual run, Jacka being similarly fond of graft and still no album, not to mention how Hus’ has obviously been spending most of his post-penitentuary time walking the streets rather than rapping – I’m a bit skeptical.
I’d like to think this is the album they would’ve made during that time on the lam if he had spent it in a remote mountain cabin only the Mob Figaz, Mac Dre, Cormega & I dunno, Rob Lo knew the location of, Jacka had brought a few beat cds and then locked them both in for a few months ala EPMD, only to emerge once they’d made a proper proper album that at the very least has both of them on every song.**
