“I’m here baby, I’m one of the greats in Hip Hop. What you have to do is just ask the other greats.” ______________________________________________

Since its early beginnings, Hip Hop has always been about competition. For some, being the best means monetary gains and everything that accompanies. Others, respect is all that matters. However, some hope for their names to be quoted as the greatest until humanity ceases to exists. Yonker’s own Jadakiss can be added to the Hip Hop’s handful accumulating all three notions. Before breaking out on his own, Jason Phillips gained his following alongside #StylesP and #Sheek )Louch through The #LOX. Releasing their Bad Boy Records debut Money, Power & Respect, the titular single earned them a gold plaque besides debuting at number three on Billboard’s 200. Setting out on his own, #Jadakiss eventually dropped his biggest hit single to day “Why” featuring R&B crooner Anthony Hamilton from his sophomore album Kiss of Death and earning accolades as well as controversy along the way. Adding another pivot point in his prolific career, he’s set to drop his fourth full length studio album Top 5 Dead or Alive November 20.
