Known for his detail-rich pen and strong moral center, Bay Area artist the Jacka is dearly missed by the hip-hop community. Today, the Jacka’s spirit returns with Murder Weapon, the late legend’s new posthumous album.
The finished version of the album the artist was working on before his passing, Murder Weapon executes the Jacka’s original artistic vision, compiling dozens of unreleased verses and keeping the original instrumentals whenever possible. A celebration of the Jacka’s legacy, the new album was lovingly completed by many of his closest friends, including Husalah, Rydah J. Klyde, & FedX of his Mob Figaz crew, and frequent behind-the-boards collaborators like RobLo, Maki, DJ Child, Lev, and AK.
Coming at the tail end of Jack History Month, the album features new guest verses from a long list of notable names from across the rap spectrum including Freddie Gibbs, Curren$y, Styles P and Berner. “Murder Weapon” arrives via The Artist Records / EMPIRE.
