When you mention the name Jadakiss in hip hop, it’s synonymous with respect. The Yonkers MC wasn’t lying when he said “my rap resume can wrap around ya whole body”. From being one third of the legendary trio The Lox to his four solo albums to a slew of legendary mixtapes and doing songs with almost any rapper you can think of, Kiss is solidified in hip hop history forever.
The Yonkers legend returns with banging new single called “ME“. Spitting over a Peabo Bryson sample, Jada talks about his career and reminds you why he’s been around since the Main Source song “Set It Off“. Kiss talks about trading lyrical jabs with Beanie Sigel and 50 Cent and was still standing strong without a scratch on him. His label bouncing from Bad Boy, Ruff Ryders to Roc-a-fella. Kiss even reached back to when Steve Stoute managed him and he landed the classic Allen Iverson Reebok commercials.
“ME” makes you appreciate Jada’s career even more than what you already do. I’m not sure if this is the set up for a new album, but there’s definitely a short film available that’s posted at the bottom of this review. From bad label deals to rap beefs to personal ups and downs, Jadakiss reminds you why he’s going to be around another 20 years.
