Fabolous & Jadakiss Break Down “F vs. J Intro” On Genius’ Video Series ‘Verified’
“I don’t like scary movies. I ain’t a fan of horror movies. I’m scared of ‘em.”
Fabolous and Jadakiss ended 2017 with Friday On Elm Street, a collaborative album that features Future, French Montana, Yo Gotti, Jeezy, and more. The title is a reference to the classic Friday the 13th and Nightmare On Elm Street horror movies, and the project kicks off with the aptly titled “F vs. J Intro,” an abbreviated version of the film series' respective villains Jason Voorhees and Freddy Kreuger. The horror movie mythology is woven throughout the track, as both Fab and Jada explain to Genius.
“You know when I used to hear [Jason say] ‘kill kill kill,’ it used to always kill me ‘cause a lot of the times I was watching Friday the 13th I would be watching them in the projects upstairs at my cousin’s house,” Jadakiss explains. “He lived on the fifth floor and my grandma lived on the third floor. And once the movie was over I had to go down the back staircase by myself and all I’d be hearing is ‘kill kill.’ So I’d be running to my grandmother’s house and try to get in there quick as I can.”
