The next video from Jadakiss on his ‘Kiss of Death’ album is ‘U Make Me Wanna,’ which features Mariah Carey. “I’m supposed to be shooting the me-and-Mariah joint,” Jadakiss told MTV News. “I might do [a split video] like I did for ‘Knock Yourself Out’ and ‘We Gonna Make It.’ I might do the Mariah joint and ‘By Your Side’ at the end, give them a verse. [‘U Make Me Wanna’] is gonna be real sexy, though, a little out of my element. That’s how I want all my videos from this album to be. ‘Why’ hit you from left field. I just want it to be one of them joints; big house, big car, one of them videos the ladies like. This is strictly for the ladies, to get me over that hump. I understand the business.” Read more.
Jadakiss tells The Associated Press reports he doesn’t really believe President Bush ordered the World Trade Center towers destroyed — he says the line in ‘Why?’ is a metaphor, and that Bush should take the blame for the terrorist attack because his administration didn’t do enough to stop it. “They didn’t follow up on a lot of things properly,” Jadakiss reasoned. “It’s the president of the United States. The buck stops with him.”
The New York Daily News reports Yonkers rapper Jadakiss is busting up the charts with a song charging President Bush was a Sept. 11 conspirator. “Why did Bush knock down the towers?” asks the song ‘Why?’, which comprises several dozen questions on subjects ranging from Kobe Bryant to the new $20 bills. ‘Why?’ jumped from No.33 to No.16 on the national Billboard charts last week, with a corresponding rise in controversy.
