Jim Jones & Hitmaka (Ft. BEAM)

Jim Jones was born to rap over a beat like the one on “Gunshot.”

Jim Jones is aging like fine wine. When he first emerged onto the music scene, his job was to be the best hype man in the industry. These days, Jim is actually dropping bars with the best of them. This past weekend, the Harlem rapper dropped “Gunshot,” a track in which he spits hefty bars over a beat that mixes samples from KRS-One’s “Step Into A World” and The Mohawks’ “The Champ.”

I’m a sucker for hip-hop and reggae fusions like “Gunshot.” With that being said, the biggest kudos on this planet needs to go to Hitmaka for his work production-wise. As for both BEAM and Jim Jones, I absolutely love the amped-up hook that the former blesses us with and the sly, gangsta, and bossed-up verses that the latter blesses us with. All in all, “Gunshot” is one of the hardest songs I’ve heard this year.

Give “Gunshots” by Jim Jones and BEAM a shot below.
