“I always seen [JET magazine] every time I walked into the house,” said Lamar. “It was always there. So I already knew that it had to hold some type of weight. Being a young cat, I had to know, since this magazine is right here all the time, it must be a powerful magazine. So it’s a privilege just to be a part of it, and for Black History Month, it’s a beautiful thing.”

Fredo Santana & Kendrick Lamar? Who’d ever think these two would collab. Anyways, Fredo Santana of GBE grabs Kendrick Lamar over this 808 Mafia produced “Jealous”. First and foremost, Kendrick over this type of beat is interesting to say the least, but it switches the voice and flow on this though. Overall the record isn’t bad, it still doesn’t do it for me.
Fredo’s forthcoming album Trappin Ain’t Dead, hits iTunes next Thursday.
