Newman and Shawn Jackson form New Jack Hustle

With albums from Blu (C.R.A.C. and Johnson&Jonson), Giant Panda and Shawn Jackson, Tres Records is definitely on the move this year. Next up for the L.A. imprint: a collaboration between Newman from Giant Panda and Mr. Jackson as New Jack Hustle. The duo’s album Sound Check drops October 21.

A note from the bio:

Sound Check is debut album from New Jack Hustle, with Newman handling all the production and helping on the raps, leaving Shawn Jackson to bless the production. …

Standout tracks include ‘Lionel,’ centering around an elastic beat and Latin atmosphere, “New Shades”‘s throbbing vibe and Shawn Jackson’s chant esq. rhymes, and “Ronald’s” breezy, chill educing [sic] beat countered by the political observant rhymes of Shawn Jackson and Vursatyl.
