I'll never be invited to the president's place, but get indicted just for tryna keep my residence laced

The Jacka ft. Dru Down & Joe Blow - The President's Face
(From What Happened To The World mixtape audio-documentary; 2014)

Just when it looked like Jacka's protege Young Lox had made the best Jacka song of 2014 with Legion Of Doom along comes The President's Face here. On paper, Jacka & Dru Down should clash like chalk & cheese; in practice they've somehow managed to compliment each other like strawberries & cream again. Joe Blow popping up for the third verse as a reminder that he's the current leading exponent of Jacka-core is the glass of wine to wash the rest of the song down with. Or sumfink.

Unrelated note: This new Kurious Jorge single is an unexpected treat in the exact same way the JuJu & Tragedy Khadafi disco-rap song from earlier this year was an unexpected treat. Would probably like this shit even more without the struggle video where Kurious breaks one of the key tenets of Lifestyle Synergy by wearing a New Era with a peacoat; pick a lifestyle and run with it hard, mate, but never mix & match them:

Not unless you rip it yourself, no.

Bradley, I think I'd really like that Homeboy Sandman, Kurious & J-Live song if my introduction to it hadn't been via the video.

Kurious looked like the flyest guy in NY back in the Uptown Shit video, so it pains me to see him dressing like some UKHH struggle rapper in that Enough video.

Jacka tape is good.

This track is huge, and See It Threw and See You Again are on the same level.
Those hooks are works of genius.

Best shit from The Jacka since Devilz Rejectz 2.
