Although his life was cut short in 2015, The Jacka‘s spirit continues to live on. And today, a posthumous album from the Bay Area legend has been released to the masses. Murder Weapon, out now via The Artist Records.
A celebration of the Jacka’s legacy, the album is a finished version of what he was working on before he passed–with dozens of unreleased verses and the majority of the original production–that was helped put together by many of his closest friends and frequent collaborators.
“It’s a mixture of songs that were recorded specifically for the album and other great records that he recorded around the same time,” a member of the Jacka’s management says. “Some of the songs were fully done and others we completed by adding features from artists that he was close to or wanted to do music with. The goal was to finish the album as close to how he would have done it as possible.”
Locked in at 13 tracks, including “Can’t Go Home” with Freddie Gibbs, the album also boasts features from Styles P, Curren$y, Berner, Cormega, Paul Wall, Killah Priest, and more.
