Spitta tapped a veritable who’s-who of hip hop to assist him, from obvious stars like Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross, and Juicy J, to throwbacks like Juvenile, Jadakiss (!!!), and Styles P‘s. Jet Life-ers Young Roddy & Trademark Da Skydiver also make appearances.
But as it should be on the Kid’s mixtape, it’s Curren$y’s star that shines the brightest. New Jet City far surpasses the complexity and energy of his 2012 debut studio album, Stoned Immaculate. It’s the best we’ve heard from the N’Awlins rhymesayer since Covert Coup.
- Best Verse: Curren$y’s verse on “Clear” is vintage Spitta with an off-beat flow over a faded-out horn sample and thumbing drum and snare combination.
- Second Best Verse: Jadakiss’ verse on “Clear”.
- Best Beat: Lex Luger nailed the track ”Choosin”, which has the satisfying snare build-ups and heavy percussions that have made the Virginian producer’s sound an industry staple.
- Most Absurd/Ignorant Verse: Juicy J brings his outlandish lyricism to “Three 60″. The
lowlightshighlights: “A girl named Holly/ Gone on’a molly/ She gunna wake up with a mouth full of nuts.” and “Bitch, I shine like a UV ray/ And I get head like a new toupée.”
