Jae Millz feat. Meek Mill - Go Fast (Prod by Jahlil Beats)
Off of the latest in Millz' The Flood mixtape series, The Flood Never Ended.
He may not get the same shine as some of his more well known Young Money counterparts but Jae Millz hit the mixtape scene with a vengeance ever since the Young Money CEO started his bid earlier this year. There was definitely a period in his career when although he was still releasing music, Millz was sounding less then inspired, but every project he's released in 2010, including Dead Presidents & the two Virgo mixtapes, has gotten progressively better then the last. After all the fuss over his comments about the XXL Freshman list, Millz sounds like he's intent on making some of his detractors eat their words.
This Jahlil Beats produced banger (this guy > Lex Luger) is Millz right in pocket, spitting that Harlem shit with the same arrogant swagger that's kept him in the game for the past 10 years...
"I'm on my New York shit B, word son
A nigga hotter then me? I ain't heard one..."
Philly spitter, Meek Mill continues to impress with a rapid fire flow that at times is reminiscent of both Peedie Crakk & Lil' Wayne. Still not sure of his range beyond the braggadocious fare that has become his default but as far as just straight snapping on a hot instrumental, Meek always brings the energy with his bars. Definitely one of the up & comers to keep an eye on.
As far as Jae Millz goes, he's never been the most intricate lyricist but at this point in the game, there's a veteran's confidence in how he puts his words together. He keeps his 16's simple enough for the casual listener but with just the right amount of wit & attitude to satisfy the heads who first heard him on the battle circuit. Hopefully his hustle will get him enough momentum to get an album greenlit cause after Drake, Nicki Minaj & Tyga, who else on Young Money is marketable enough to sell records?
