Jadakiss Officially Inks Solo Deal With Roc-A-Fella Records

It’s official, Yonkers MC and member of the LOX Jadakiss has inked a new joint solo deal with Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records and Ruff Ryders. Although rumors of a move to Def Jam by Kiss have circulated for some time now, Jay-Z confirmed the deal during a recent show at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Kiss’s next album will be a joint venture between Roc-A-Fella and Ruff Ryders and is due out in 2008. The as yet untitled project will be Kiss’ third solo LP, after 2001’s Kiss The Game Goodbye and 2004’s Kiss of Death. Jay-Z and Kiss’s partner Sheek Louch have also confirmed that a deal to bring The LOX to Def Jam is also in the works, and should be complete in the near future.

    Jada’s dope. Hope he goes platinum with his future projects, he deserves it. I hope Jay don’t mess him about doe.

    Oh yeah, 1st my niggas.

  • phurdrick

    Wow!! Long over done!! Should’ve been got down with Jay-Z record company, after Ruff Ryders fell apart!! Now get the rest of The Lox!!

  • FLIP

    I have a feeling the album still won’t be shit…too many cooks in the kitchen. Or worse yet, they leave him be and he puts out another Kiss The Game Goodbye.

    It’s pretty much in the bag. The streets been needing this love. This type of movement will finally get rid of that whack ass down-south trash. New York could really bring it back (Nas & Jay was the opening act). I wish he would have signed them as a group two not single out Sheek & Styles. A great movement.

    • http://www.xxlmag.com noid

      why the fuck did you have to bring the unit into this?the lox are great rappers(minus sheek)but they are horrible songwriters and even more worse buisnessmen.thats where those 2 groups are different!

      just cause jada will have a couple of apperances from hov and some just blaze tracks dont mean shit.its all about making bangers after bangers untill your album aint got shit but bangers.lets see if he can pull that off!

  • Tone

    I hope that this shit works out for real for real. I mean the streets need this nigga and man i would hate for this to be a bull*hit deal. And what’s good with that LOX album though?

  • Chinazz From Toronto

    Bout time Jada got a real deal….hope the production is tight enough to match jada’s lyrics….jigga should have that covered…hopefully, if he’s not too busy promoting rihanna. Wonder why he didnt splurge for sheek and styles….maybe he didnt see the potential….i would have!!! anyways, good move for hip hop.

  • soy-yo

    Why doesn’t jay focus on the artists he already has instead of bringing some new ones to keep on postponing them others’ works? No offense but LL was right, he aint experienced at launching or promoting unless himself.
    And I like jay raps and music but everything’s got to be said.

  • dolo

    When will these mofos learn to stop signing with a major label .. jada wont make new fans unless he does some pop shyt wit rhianna thats gonna alienate his old fans . he should just put out an indy album and make his money, instead of becoming another tax write up

  • Trickdd

    LOL JUST COUSE HE SIGHN WITH ROC DONT MEAN THE NIGGA GUNNA GO PLAT LOL I REALY DONT THINK HE WELL BUT I LIKE JADA MYSELF HE DOWN WITH THE SOUTH MOVEMENT I DONT NO HE MIGHT GO PLAT THOUGH HE JUST MIGHT. SO WTF IS UP WITH D-BLOCK IF THIS NIGGA SIGHN TO DA ROC?

  • Stop haing on the south

    why do people hate the fact that the south is
    running the game right now. New York ran rap for years, West Coast had they time too. But the west coast dont ever complain about the south, just the New York dudes. Jadakiss going to Def Jam is not going to shift the power to New York. If I was from New York I would rally behind Jay Z because he the only one thats going to sell besides 50. Hip Ho sales are down and is going to stay down. People are going to have to realize there are other ways to make money. Master P Jay Z and Puffy make more money off other things than rap.

  • Mr KCMO

    Jada will not go plat if Jay can’t lets be real. But I like the move to Roc. Hopefully this will at least lead to a push in the airwaves department, since that seems to be the whole reason to go to Def Jam. I wonder how Jays close friend Diddy feels about it. Oh well, if it makes green I doubt Jay cares. As far as the south and dancing goes, alot of the dances from New York back in the day were revolutionary, while the New South is just kind of garbage IN MY OPINION…. now lets not confuse my statement , this in no way applies to MCs’ like UGK, Scarface, Luda, so on and so on, this shot is aimed directly at Soulja Boy (don’t know where he is from, but he needs to return)and that type music. Yeah its great for the 13 year olds, but it really is shining a goofy light on hip-hop, and in the current political and social state, maybe looking like buffoons is not in Hip Hops best interest.

  • LBDII

    Plies? Fuck that shit. You hear that bonus track for the best buy shit off Plies album? Water or whatever it called worse song ive heard in my life. Plus all he talks about is fucking in his annoying gay ass voice. Fuck Plies.

    BTW Jada is tight, need to get Styles a deal as well his shit is great.

I JUST HOPE THAT DEF JAM DOESN’T WATER DOWN HIS MUSIC BUT THEN AGAIN THEY LET GHOST GO FOR SELF WITH HIS UNDERGROUND HEAVY “FISHSCALE” AND “MORE FISH” SO HOPEFULLY HIS DEBUT ON DEF JAM WILL BE A CLASSIC LIKE HIS LAST TWO ALBUMS. D-BLOCK IS FINALLY BACK.

  • kings

    is not all about bangers till u finally give people what they want than the street. some rappers dont understand the music business. they all about the bangers.make a fucking good song and forget making it hood. i think kiss miss his way since he started listen to SP. and do his thing because his a grown men.

    IT’S NOT 2003 ANYMORE AND FIFTY CENT IS AN IDIOT WITH MONEY. HE HAS NO STREET MORALS. HE LAUGHED BECAUSE SUPREME GOT LOCKED UP AND SAID “LOSERS LOSE WINNERS WIN”. WHAT KIND OF A STREET NIGGA SAYS THAT. STYLES P CALLED INTO THE RADIO STATION AFTER FIFTY SAID THAT AND COMMENTED ON HOW FUCKED UP THAT SHIT 50 SAID WAS. FIFTY AND TONY YAYO SAY SOME OF THE DUMBEST THINGS OUT OF THEIR MOUTH. WHAT ABOUT 50 SAYING HE WOULD DROP A GUNIT PROJECT EVERYTIME DEF JAM DROPS A PROJECT. THAT NIGGA 50 IS A BITCH AND I HOPE HIS DUMB ASS GAY UNIT CONTINUED FAILURE. FUCK 50 AND FUCK WHOEVER IS ON HIS DICK. HE IS A GOOD BUSINESS MAN BUT HE HAS A FUCKED UP WAY OF CARRYING HIMSELF. HE’S NOT THE LEAST BIT OF HUMBLE. FUCK THAT SNITCH

  • CHICAGO “G”

    Jada is dope definitely one of the best in the game today but not all time because he is a punchline rapper and lacks depth, styles p has better content but jada got better punchlines, overall flow and ill voice… plus that nigga needs to boss up and quit signing to niggas make D-Block pop off he been in the game to long to still be signing to niggas.

  • Latino Heat

    i hope the shit is hot, but im not getting my hopes up. as much as i like the lox as a group and solo they have never made a classic. they have “canibus syndrome” as i call it. hot as fuck on other peoples shit, but there own albums tend to suck balls. the sad part is kiss is the dopest but his two albums have been the worst. and every body says sheek is the wackest, which i agree, but his 2 albums were hotter than kiss or styles 2 albums. either way he aint going platinum. everybody got excited when jay-z signed nas, then his album kinda came and went. expect the same here for the same reason, kiss is a terrible song writer. he’ll 16 you to death, but thats about it.

  • Latino Heat

    and one more thing to THE GHOST, that said eminem should sign styles p. that aint gonna happen, styles said he wanted to “punch his (eminem)’s teeth down his throat” for that “black bitch” song that came out a few years ago.

  • Ray

    this was defenitely a good look for jada. i’m glad he didn’t go to kock because niggaz been floppin over there lately. the roc is having a rebirth right now with kanye, jigga and bean and freeway coming out, so jada should complete the circle. holla
