Early last year, rappers Fabolous and Jadakiss teased that “Freddy vs. Jason” was coming soon, which turned out to be a collaboration album that the duo was working on. That album, which draws inspiration from the Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th franchises, was retitled Friday on Elm Street, released this past weekend.
Fabolous explained the album to HipHopDX back in January…
“Jason, you knew he was killer. You knew his work and you knew what he do. Freddy was a killer, and he might be a little more witty, cuz he talk more. The Jason character didn’t really say much, but you knew he was there. You can’t even escape it. Once you heard those footsteps, you knew he was in the area. There’s a lot of comparisons when you want to compare to things, but that was one of the ones we were looking at with Freddy vs. Jason. When it came to villains, they were always the two that were brought up.”
The 12-track album kicks off with “F vs J Intro,” which is a particular treat for fans of the top two horror franchises. Give it a listen below to hear some familiar tunes!
