With cover art that resembles a movie poster the brand new East meets West coast collaboration Highway Robbery - this week's number hip-hop chart entry from Freeway and The Jacka - is a powerful rap release clocking in just under an hour that melds one of the East Coast's best (Philly's Freeway) with one of the West Coast's finest (the Bay Area's The Jacka of Mob Figaz fame). With production duties care of Traxamillion, Jake One, and RobLo this popular fifteen track release features an array of impressive guest spots from mic wreckers from both coasts (and down south) including Cormega, Killer Mike, Trae Tha Truth, Paul Wall, Freddie Gibbs, Joe Blow, Dubb 20, Fam Syrk, Husalah, Rydah J. Klyde, Blahk Jesus, and Ampichino.
To get you a better idea of the sound of this recommended new release are two videos by the collaborative duo. Above is the video for the album track "Cherry Pie" that features both Freddie Gibbs and Jynx and below is the video for the non album track "Combine The Coasts." While just published to YouTube in the last couple of weeks the "Coasts" video, which perfectly describes the collaborative duo, first appeared a year ago on a hip-hop website when it was rumored to be on the new album. But the non album song, which is a single, is promised to appear on the upcoming Freeway & The Jacka mixtape Write My Wrongs mixtape.
