Though hip-hop does not look or sound like the artform many of us have fallen in love with, the real is still out there. It’s always special to see generations overlap to bring quality rap to the masses. Our latest example of this is the new release of Beloved, the joint project crafted by legend Styles P and rising star Dave East and released under Mass Appeal and Def Jam. It is a follow-up to East’s Paranoia 2 and Pinero’s G-Host.
The NYC duo teamed up for 13-track project which features guest appearance by Dyce Payne Jazzy and Tish Hyman. Additionally, on the album’s final track, “Load My Gun,” the full LOX join the party with lyrical contributions from Jadakiss and Sheek Louch. The album’s production is handled by a team of producers that includes Scram Jones, Chase N. Cash and Styles’ son, Noah Styles.
