Who said New York Hip-Hop was dead? Over the past few weeks, we’ve heard a number of outstanding releases from New York artists. Legends like the Wu-Tang Clan and Styles P have dropped projects. Contemporary acts like Beast Coast have also dropped new albums. Not to mention, Fat Joe has another album on the way later this year. However, this week is focused on Harlem’s own Jim Jones. Following his 2018 release, Waste of Talent, the New York icon is back with a new project called El Capo.
Jim Jones’ latest release, El Capo, marks his seventh studio album. Over the last fifteen years, he’s delivered solo projects like On My Way To Church, Harlem: Diary of a Summer and Hustler’s P.O.M.E. His latest body of work comes with sixteen new tracks including “My Era,” “Nothing Lasts” and “”Sports Cars.” The project features production from the Heatmakerz and guest appearances from Rick Ross, Fat Joe, Cam’ron, Dave East, Fabolous and many more. El Capo also has two bonus tracks with collaborations from Jim Jones and Jadakiss. Check out the full project above and let us know what you think. Does this compare to Waste of Talent?
