Jadakiss Says He’s BIG, Prodigy, DMX & Pun Combined

Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let Ambrosia For Heads sift through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, it’s better than it’s ever been. Not only can we go back and listen to all of our favorites at the click of a button, but there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlist with recently released music. We update it regularly, so subscribe to follow us on Spotify if you like what you hear.

Yesterday (August 26), DJ Khaled released GOD DID. The album has made headlines for its songs involving JAY-Z, Drake, Eminem, Kanye West, and others. However, Jadakiss delivers one of the keystone performances from the We The Best/Sony Records album that will likely compete to be Khaled’s second consecutive #1 album, and fourth overall.

“JADAKISS INTERLUDE” begins with footage from Jadakiss’ knockout Verzuz performance one year ago alongside Styles P and Sheek Louch against The Diplomats. Rapping to the Cool & Dre-produced “New York” for Ja Rule, ‘Kiss paves his lane with confidence. Then the footage gives way to a new song, with some classic James Brown mixed in between. Jadakiss wastes no time stamping a memorable verse. “I’m B.I.G., Prodigy, DMX and Pun / Killin’ ni**as for fun, nothin’ iller than son / I’ma be collectin’ this money long as it come / If I’m behind the barrel, then you in front of the gun / I’m the bullet that struck your limbs / I’m white Air Force 1s, I’m construction Timbs / I’ma do whatever it takes, just enough to win / I’m the one that your man told you not to f*ck with him / I’m the single parent household with nothin’ in the ‘frigerator / Pissy staircases, smell like the incinerator / Grandma in the back, hooked up to the ventilator / Tryin’ to chip in and see if we can get some dinner later,” he begins. In the brief a la carter verse, The LOX co-founder continues: “In front of the building with a clip full / Garbage pilled up, rats size of pitbulls / Either gettin’ money or you aren’t / Couple parolees, couple ni**as with warrants / Couple of hoopties, couple ni**as with foreigns / Makin’ a movie, a couple ni**as is starrin’ / But it’s just a segment / Somebody got somebody sister pregnant / Dice game, somebody lose, somebody win / Somebody comin’ home, somebody is goin’ in / Everybody ’bout that action, we don’t do talk / You already know what it is, this is New York.

Notably, over the course of his extensive career, Jadakiss worked with Biggie Smalls, Big Pun, Prodigy and DMX. The MC decidedly picked four late peers and collaborators to shout out in the interlude verse.
