Jadakiss Discusses His New Hairdo [Video]

A couple of weeks ago, pictures of Jadakiss in the studio with Kanye West, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes and DJ Khaled surfaced on the Internet. Not only were fans excited about the collaborations that could potentially come out of that session, but they were also surprised to see that, after all of these years of being known for his baldy, Jada, who was sporting a new dark Caesar cut in the flick, had hair. Kiss says he let his hair grow in because people doubted he could.

“One of my reasons for growing it was that a lot of people think my hair couldn’t grow,” Jada said with a smile last week at the D-Block studios while taping a segment for MTV2’s “Sucker Free.” “Then I wanted to do a new look with a new album. The ladies say they like it. My mom said she likes it. My mom didn’t think I could grow hair. I was like, ‘ma, c’mon. What’s wrong with you? I had a bald head for so long, people think it was by force, not by choice. But we gonna switch it up. Plus my right hand man is locked up: K Rosewood. He ain’t here. That’s one of my goals, besides keeping him on the dog tag, I got my hair.

“I can’t grow a beard, [though],” Kiss added with a laugh. “If I could grow the big beard, that’s another thing, if I could grow the big beard, I would too while I was in my work process. But I can’t. I only can grow the peach fuzz.”

You can see Jada and his new ‘do on the cover of his latest mixtape, Consignment. The project of all new material—which features Young Jeezy, Meek Mill, Trae Tha Truth, French Montana, Fabolous, Lloyd Banks, Yung Joc, and Styles P among others—will be available for free download on Friday, April 27, at 4:27 PM. —Shaheem Reid (@ShaheemReid)
