Here Jada goes over Jay Z’s classic “Where I’m From” cut. Listen after the jump.

Fabolous’ ongoing #FridayNightFreestyles has been a relative success thus far but with this new one right here it’s either make it or break it for how you feel about Loso. Sure, he’s already gone over an undisputed classic in his “B.A.S.” freestyle but Mobb Deep’s 1994 cut “Shook Ones Pt. II” is a milestone/watershed moment for hip-hop. It’s such a statement in hip-hop culture that even one iconic Detroit rapper Eminem has stated numerous times that its had a profound impact on him. In fact, you may recall Eminem’s “B-Rabbit” character from 8 Mile rapping over the track during his final freestyle battle. Anyway, if Loso doesn’t deliver and do this classic instrumental justice then his whole #FridayNightFreestyles is moot. You be the judge after the jump.

Check it out after the jump!

New Jersey’s Fetty Wap is blowing up thanks to his breakout single “Trap Queen.” And naturally, everyone is jumping on it to either remix or freestyle. First we had one exclusively done by French Montana which prompted Atlanta’s Quavo (of the Migos) to jump on it, too. Now, Fabolous is contributing a verse to the French Montana remix of “Trap Queen.” Listen after the jump.
