Jadakiss’ Top 5 Dead Or Alive releases today (November 20). The long-anticipated Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam Records album is a conversation piece for The LOX MC’s own place in the game. With a plethora of peers on board, “You Don’t Eat” is a song that’s mostly about the skills and approach that put Jada’ in the runnings.

The video finds the Yonkers, New York MC taking escalators (a metaphor for status, perhaps) and navigating the city in a way he might have when he just started. Jadakiss is a man of the people, and even major labels and plaques can’t seemingly change him.

Does T.5.D.O.A. measure up?
