    via MTV.com...

    Trey Songz has been walking with a rapper's swag ever since his 2005 debut I Gotta Make It so when the Virginia vocalist dropped his hip-hop mixtape #LemmeHolDatBeat in 2010, it didn't come as a surprise. This past November when Trigga Trey returned with his second rap mixtape, #LemmeHolDatBeat2, he made it clear that he takes his bars seriously.

    The DJ Drama-helmed tape begins with Songz paying homage to hip-hop's fallen over "Jackin' for Beats." Over the course of three minutes and 41 seconds, Trey raps over a medley of beats popularized by the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac and Big Pun. The "Jackin' "concept was made famous by Ice Cube in 1990 on his Kill at Will EP. To prove his rap worth, Trigga glides over Biggie's "Sky's the Limit," Eazy-E's "Boyz-n-the Hood," Big L's "Put It On," Pun's "Still Not a Player" and 'Pac's "I Get Around."
