Song: Cartel Gathering [ft. Ghostface Killah & Raekwon]
Artist: Jadakiss
Album: The Last Kiss
Label: Roc-A-Fella / Def Jam
Producer: Swiv B & DJ Eddie F
Notes: none
Analysis: This is a dream collaboration for many hip hop fans, and every bit as good as you would expect. The sound stays hard while still keeping a warm weather feel so you can rock it with the windows down. Colorful lyrics from all three NY rap legends bring the track to the next level, and I wouldn’t even know where to begin quoting. Ghostface, Raekwon & Jadakiss are all obviously solid lyricists, and it’s hard to get a bad verse from any of them so ‘Cartel Gathering’ doesn’t disappoint. If it weren’t for that Oj da Juiceman featured song, I would say that The Last Kiss has a chance at flawlessness. But one brick doesn’t make an album, and this one’s still stacking up big.
