Jim Jones - State of the Union (ft. Rick Ross & Marc Scibilia)
Jim Jones is not messing around with this one.
Straight out the gate, El Capo is fire. Produced entirely by The Heatmakerz, Jones brings the New York streets to wax as he spins stories of what life has been like for him on his home turf of Harlem. The 16-track record has little to no fillers as each track bears lyrical weight for the Dipset legend.
The Heatmakerz beats woven with Jones's delivery pairs well, creating an album that has lived up to its hype.
Featured on the track are a list of heavyweights and a few longtime collaborators or Jones. They include Fabolous, Jadakiss, Rick Ross, Dave East, Cam'ron, Maino, Fat Joe, Curren$y, Trav, Conway, Fred the Godson, Marc Scibilia, Ball Greezy, Benny the Butcher, and more. This isn't a record for those who aren't ready to keep up with streetwise lyricism. As tough as Jones's persona is, the rapper's vulnerability if prevalent, especially on tracks like "State of the Union" featuring Rick Ross and Marc Scibilia, along with "Good Die Young" featuring Marc Scibilia.
