audio review : Friday On Elm Street ( album ) ... Fabolous + Jadakiss

The Freddy/Jason horror concept is silly and clichĂ©. Jadakiss already played Damien from The Omen on the last Lox album. This set doesn’t need such gimmicks. A duet set from two thoroughly decent rappers is alluring enough. What these songs make clear is that Fabolous is better. Not by much. Kiss holds his own. The beats hold theirs too. The hooks though; Future’s Stand Up anthem being a stimulating exception; are kill-knife dull.

audio review : 4 No Reason ( EP ) ... The Lox

This is a set of 4 new Lox songs, each including a verse from all three members, released for no apparent reason. The title is stylized as a grammatically incorrect social media hashtag. There doesn’t seem to be a (sensible) reason for that neither.

The music is what you’ve come to expect from the boys, which, after their disappointing comeback album released late last year, isn’t a good thing. The one exception is Gangsta Party, featuring Derez Deshon, the one song with a decent chorus.
