Murder Weapon, the Posthumous Album from Bay Area Legend the Jacka, is Now Available For Pre-Order

With Appearances from Freddie Gibbs, Curren$y, Paul Wall, and Many More, the Upcoming Project is a Testament to the Mob Figaz Emcee’s Lasting Legacy


Remembered for his deep spirituality and detailed rhymes, the Jacka is a legendary figure in the Bay Area and beyond. Today, the Jacka’s management announces that Murder Weapon, the late California artist’s posthumous album, is available for pre-order. The finished version of an album the Bay Area emcee was working on before his untimely passing, Murder Weapon fulfills the artist’s original vision, compiling dozens of unreleased verses and keeping the original instrumentals whenever possible. The upcoming album is a celebration of the Jacka’s life and career, completed by many of his artist friends and producers, including frequent collaborators like RobLo, Maki, DJ Child, Lev, and AK.

Earlier this month, known as Jack History Month in his home region, the Jacka’s presence returned with “Can’t Go Home,” a soulful collaboration with Freddie Gibbs, which earned coverage in PitchforkHotNewHipHop, and more. “Take Over The World,” a heart-wrenching single with an appearance from Jacka’s close friend and Mob Figaz associate FedX, dropped earlier this week. A testament to the Jacka’s enduring legacy, the album features verses from Husalah, Rydah J. Klyde, FedX of the Mob Figaz, as well as appearances from a long list of hip-hop legends from all over the nation, including, Curren$y, Berner, Styles P, Paul Wall, Killah Priest, Cormega, and more. Coming at the end of Jack History MonthMurder Weapon releases on February 28th via The Artist Records / EMPIRE.
