Jadakiss Opens Up On ‘The Kiss Of Death’

Jadakiss tells MTV News he’s taken note of his lyrical flaws brought up by critics, so on his upcoming LP, ‘The Kiss of Death’, Jada opens up. “I been getting a lot of criticism [about my lyrics] with the media,” he said a few weeks ago in New York. “They said the only thing that was [hindering] me from being one of the greats like Rakim, Jigga and 50 Cent was that I never let [the listeners] inside my world, my life. Plus, you gotta charge that to 50, Eminem and DMX. They came out with pain, gave the world their pain. Em with his moms and his baby’s moms, X with his whole life, 50 with whatever happened to him.

When Jadakiss released his first solo album he had a line that said he was looking for enemies. Well, apparently making enemies is something that doesn’t come easy for the New York native as Jada notes “I got good relationships,” adding “with industry you gotta keep your relationships and your repores good. A lotta people got money but a lot of this is about people liking you as a person.

If they don’t like you it’s a wrap.” To find out who Jada’s been working with, why he feels his last album didn’t do as well as it could have, and how Puffy is still finding ways to screw over The Lox monetarily, click here.
