Up and coming rapper Jahzel recently released a soulful ode to his hometown of Chicago, which is titled “Faithful”, produced by The CJ of Flawless Trackz. On the song you’ll hear a familiar DJ Rogers’ “Faithful to the End” sample. You’ll probably recall that sample from Common’s BE album, for the Kanye West produced song of the same name.
But unlike Common’s song, this record maintains the soul from the original sample but with a definite added bounce. Jahzel raps about growing up in his hometown; Born and raised, I think back some days to that summer time watching Jordan play/ they were killin’, him, Phil, and Pippen, whole city loved them, had six parades, he raps, reflecting on the Bulls dynasty of the 90’s. “Faithful” will be featured on his forthcoming album The Wake Up, which is due out in 2015.
