EDITORS’ NOTES

Since getting into the game with Mob Figaz, the Jacka has stayed steady grinding, and is now one of the most revered underground street MCs working – not just in his native Bay Area, but coast to coast, as evidenced by collaborations with Cormega, Statik Selektah, and other Eastside artists. Rocking a low-key, world-weary flow and compelling lyricism, even when dealing with well-worn subject matter, he also has an ear for great beats, and is unafraid to use diverse production styles to get his message across. On Flight Risk, he teams up with some impressive guest artists (Styles P, Yukmouth, C-BO, Dubee, I-Rocc, and Turf Talk among others), and does his smooth-thug thing over an assortment of exceptional beats. Whether showing his sensitive side on "Thinkin of You" and "First Date," or breaking down the crime life on "Where The Mobsters Are" and "Knockin N***as Off," he comes correct on all ten tracks here, dropping sophisticated, highly quotable verbals like it's nothing. Outstanding hip-hop from one of the game's nicest MCs.
