Jadakiss Talks “Letter To B.I.G.,” Disses Actor Who Played Tupac In “Notorious”

With his video tribute to Biggie Smalls leaking yesterday, Jadakiss took some time out to share his thoughts on Notorious and his “Letter to B.I.G.”

On the song, the Yonkers MC and one time Bad Boy label mate felt compelled to update the deceased rapper on hip-hop’s current climate. “I wanted to make a letter to my dead homey just to tell him how I felt about the game right now – the state of hip-hop – and how I thought things was going,” he explained during a conference call on Wednesday afternoon. “I didn’t want it to be in song format or none of that. It’s a real letter to Big. And it came across real strong to the people. They accepted it; they got other people doing other letters, that’s a beautiful thing when the song can inspire the people to do the same thing.”

The song is featured on the recently released soundtrack to the Biggie biopic Notorious amongst a new song by Jay-Z and unreleased demos by Big. “I had actually did that like 2-3 months before they even started shooting the movie,” he said. “That was only slated to be on my album but I let the soundtrack get that.”

Asked how he felt about the flick, The Lox rapper didn’t seem too pleased with actor Anthony Mackie’s portrayal of Tupac Shakur. “I really didn’t like the Pac character in that movie,” he admitted. “They could of did better on Pac.”

Jada’s highly anticipated Roc-A-Fella debut, The Last Kiss is slated to hit shelves on March 10th. – Elan Mancini

      What the fuck are you babbling about? Your not comfy with how look so you gotta call other people ugly, except in lots of words.

      And Jada isnt dissin the portrayal, hes admitting they picked a bitch to play Tupac, and nowhere in the article does it have Jada dissin the dead.

    They messed up on Pac & LiL Cease but they didnt mess up on LiL Kim or Faith especially LiL Kim lol

    • Hate Hate and more Hate

      Your right, they did drop the ball on Pac’s Character. They should have shown Pac carrying Humpy/Shock G’s weed and luggage or at least practing some of those funky fresh dance moves he used to do before he traded in his Kimono made of Kente Cloth for that tight ass leather vest and Aunt Jemima Bandanna.

      • amar

        yeah, pac wasn’t pac-like and lil cease was…9.

        kim was way hotter than real kim, but i’m not complaining
