Yonkers bred rap lyricist Jadakiss is in a hurry. He dropped his sophomore album, Kiss of Death the follow up to his near platinum debut Kiss Tha Game Goodbye, he has his thoughts firmly placed on the business of delivering his new album, with an eye towards the future. “This is the one right here. I know everybody says that, but I don’t plan on really doing this that much longer. I’m trying to go behind the scenes,” says Jadakiss.

However, while his thoughts allude to calling it a career (doubtful), his actions speak to the contrary. The past year has found Jadakiss continually in rap listener’s ears via a slew of stand out, cameo verses. With rap fans notoriously impatient when artists have long hiatus between albums, the importance of a rapper staying on the radar between albums is essential.

Whether it’s on mixtapes, appearing on The LOX brethren’s solo album or guest spots, the streets never have to hunt very far for the next scorching Jadakiss verse. The past year alone has found him riding shotgun and spitting alongside rap heavyweights that include Nas (“Made You Look (Remix)”), Jennifer Lopez (“Jenny from the Block”), Ghostface (“Run”) and Gang Starr (“Rite Where You Stand”). Besides the stand out verses, Jada also caught the acting bug appearing in the feature film Honey with Mekhi Phifer and Jessica Alba, the BET film Ryde or Die with Vivica Fox and Duane Martin as well as appearing on label mates hit TV show EVE (UPN).

An exhaustive portfolio but it’s all old hat for Jadakiss, after all, he is a rap veteran in all definitions of the word. In the mid-nineties he was a member of the Bad Boy Records family with his group The LOX, formerly The Warlocks. When the relationship eventually soured, the grade school buddies Jadakiss (Jason Phillips), Styles (David Styles) and Sheek (Sean Jacobs), in a sense, returned home to become part of the Ruff Ryders Records family. Besides stellar contributions to three Ruff Ryders compilations, the group released an album We Are The Streets, as well as solo offerings from Jadakiss (Kiss Tha Game Goodbye) and Styles (A Gangster and a Gentleman). Now, the focus is another album from Jadakiss, which the streets have been screaming for.

Where Kiss Tha Game Goodbye was a critically acclaimed debut that confirmed Jada’s ability to hold down an album for self, Kiss of Death will further establish Kiss as one of the rap game’s elite lyricist.

Indeed, Kiss of Death is packed with enough variety to please die-hard Jadakiss fans and to invite newcomers to become acquainted with his sound as well. Jadakiss is no longer a brash emcee with far flung aspirations to Hip-Hop’s throne, but a savvy veteran with legit claims to the crown. Jadakiss has endured all the requisites for success in the rap game. He’s been through a bum record deal, released a solid debut album, is the star player of a team that keeps him on his toes and has support from a strong label home.
