Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat Link With Jadakiss for “Business as Usual”
Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat are back together like old times working on a new LP titled Business As Usual. Yesterday (Oct. 21), the So So Def head honcho dropped the new banger and title track "Business As Usual" featuring his day one and The LOX's Jadakiss.
JD provides a simple yet banging horn-driven instrumental that him and Brat trade bars over. "Me and my nigga to the left of me/Tight like shit to the death of me/One mean ass recipe/Man fuck yall niggas thinking less of me/Shit, they tryna stick us where the rest would be/Fuck that they gotta put us where the best to be," they rap.
Jadakiss brings the heat on the second verse, before letting the "Funkdafied" duo finish off the duties.
The cover art for the single features a photo of a young Hillary Clinton.
Brat and JD have been reliving their glory days of the mid '90s, recently dropping duets like “Big Brother x Lil Sister” and “Alessandro Michele” in preparation for their upcoming collab.
Back in July, they put out the track "F U Pay Me" featuring The-Dream.
Dupri trying to recapture magic with Da Brat is no surprise. Last June, Bow Wow announced he was linking back up with the Atlanta OG after a long and unfruitful stint with Cash Money Records. "Everybody is asking me how it feels to be back, but we never left," said Shad. "Even during my time at Cash Money, Jermaine was right there. We never been separated. I think maybe just one time due to us trying to maneuver some contractual things where we couldn’t work with each other, but that was it."
