Release Date: April 5, 2011
Jim Jones is back with his fifth studio album ‘Capo’ (not counting his classic group LP Member’s Of Birdgang). After a near death car accident, and reunion with his Dip Set member Cam’Ron, Jim seems ready to take over the rap game again with a new alliance of artists to help out.
With a feature on all 14 tracks, you already know what you’re in for. First, Game and Jimmy ride out on the beautiful dark “Carton Of Milk”. Certified banger “The Paper” feels like a down south version of “We Fly High”, with Jones entering new territory switching his style. Also, the Raekwon and Mel Matrix featured “Drops Is Out”, may get the repeat almost instantly. Cam’Ron shows up on the summer single ready “Getting To The Money” where he proclaims “Khaled, they the best.. We the worst”. Other highlights come on “Take A Bow” with Lloyd Banks and fresh home Prodigy delivering more New York flavour and realness. The album closes out with a few positive songs like “Perfect Day” and “God Bless The Child”.
‘Capo’ is a great instalment to Jim Jones’ list of albums, and a great look for Harlem and NY. If you are a fan of gangster rap and need an album to ride around to this summer, make sure you go cop this one quick fast. Dip-Set!
