For those unfamiliar with HaLo, here’s a little background. He hails from North Carolina and is a proud member of 9th Wonder‘s Jamla Records roster and squad. And this past Tuesday, HaLo dropped his latest project, Mansa Musa, that guest stars none other than Masta Killa of the Wu-Tang Clan. While he’s a prominently featured MC on the record, Killa isn’t on every track. That includes standout single “Jerk Chicken,” which was released to coincide with the album drop.
The playful cut sounds like it was recorded off the cuff, with HaLo spitting his bars at a sporadic rate over the neck-snapping production from Nottz. Speaking of Nottz, did you know that he’s the newest addition to 9th’s production crew, The Soul Council? It’s true, and it means that we can expect more burners like “Jerk Chicken” that, by the way, will leave you proclaiming “baby, you’re a jerk!” in public places more than you probably should.
You can hear the track below and buy the album on Amazon.
