Jadakiss and Fabolous are two of the more reliable New York vets, and they tend to deliver any time they get on a track together. Therefore, the suggestion that the two could have more new music in the works is cause for celebration, and from our perspective, it seems like it could be a joint project."Freddy Vs.

While the title could signify anything from a song to an album, we have a feeling it'll be a mixtape -- at least that's what we're hoping at this point.

It hardly seems like Christmas without a new project to bump from Fabolous. The rapper has made it his tradition to give fans a new release on Christmas Day, whether it was from his Soul Tape series or The Young OG Project. This year though, we'll be without a Fabo Xmas day release. You could always return to Summer Shootout, though.
