Fabolous & Jadakiss Show That Being A Father To Your Child Is Timeless (Video)
2017’s Friday On Elm Street album from Jadakiss and Fabolous was years in the making. As any Hip-Hop Head would expect, the Def Jam Records album is chock full of wordplay, clever punchlines, compound rhyme structures, and grabbing production (especially from Swizz Beatz). However, there is plenty of substance too, evidenced in “Soul Food.”
The concept of “soul” has been part of Fabolous music for years now (see: his S.O.U.L. Tape mixtape series). Jada’ is not much different, with 2009’s The Last Kiss showing some new range for The LOX MC.
“Soul Food,” the latest single from Friday On Elm Street, is about fatherhood. These two MCs show family photos, along with video sequences of them raising their sons. From pick-ups from school to family dinners, time with grandma and shopping, the video stresses the importance of being there, being invested, and setting an example. The black-and-white video paints F-A-B and ‘Kiss in non-traditional lights from some of their visuals, and remind Heads that family is first for these New York giants.
This song is produced by Chicago’s C-Sick, who has secured placements on past albums by Logic, Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment, and the late Fredo Santana.
Several songs from Jadakiss and Fabolous are currently on the official Ambrosia For Heads playlist.
