VIDEO: Maino - What Happened ft Jadakiss

I ain't the biggest Maino fan, but dude has been consistent throughout his career. If you want a raw hood story teller, look no further. It was really the Jada feature that caught my eye. But once I peeped the video I was impressed. Lyrically Maino isn't the strongest emcee, but while most would overcompensate, Maino stays in his lane. A true NY emcee with that smooth relaxed flow, he spits about the game (specifically the NY rap game) and how the commercial hip pop has taken over. Jadakiss comes in to complete the track like only he can. The video itself has a simple but strong message. All that whack hip hop has turned the consumers into zombies. What Happened is a good song with a great video. If you a Maino fan this video is a good way to start off the New Year. If not, peep anyway. Conceptually Maino is as strong as he has been in a while, and he keeps tight lyrics throughout a plethora of issues.
