Freddie Gibbs Taps Jadakiss To Share New Song “Black Illuminati”

On the heels of his stellar Day N Vegas performance, Grammy-nominated Indiana rap icon Freddie Gibbs reunites with Yonkers legend Jadakiss for the new single “Black Illuminati” on Warner Records. A grim yet grand meeting of two elite lyricists revered for their vivid street narratives, “Black Illuminati” finds these masters of craft detailing their journeys while celebrating the acclaim and financial successes their music has afforded. Accompanying the single is a video that matches the moody and minimal feel.

“Black Illuminati” marks the first time Gibbs and Jadakiss have teamed up since 2012’s “Krazy.” Though many years have elapsed, their chemistry remains potent. Over a beat that recalls both quiet storm R&B and emotive low-key electronics, Gibbs spits with fervent passion, technical mastery, and graphically detailed lyrics that have made millions connect with his music: “They want to take me out this game like Sha’Carri / Black Illuminati, touch big rabbits, streets need a body.” Jadakiss follows with his trademark laugh and a verse that proves the years have made him wiser, sharper, and even more assured of his enduring stature.
