Jadakiss Talks New Album, “Top 5, Dead or Alive”

Fresh off the release of The Champ Is Here 3 mixtape, Jadakiss says that he’s currently gearing up for his fourth solo album, to be titled Top Five, Dead or Alive.

According to the Yonkers MC, he’s already started working on the disc. “I got about three good ones, not even recorded,”” Jada told MTV News about the LP’s progress. “I got probably two verses off each song. Maybe four good ones. [DJ Drama] sent me something. I’m doing real careful selection on production on this project.” [Watch below]

Interestingly enough, the album is slated to be coming out on Roc-A-Fella, which was recently re-launched by the label’s co-founder Damon Dash, with distribution by Def Jam.

“Its Def Jam, Roc-A-Fella, Ruff Ryders, D-Block, Aphilliates, Green Lantern, a couple of other white guys,” Kiss joked about whose logos will appear on the back of the CD. “You know how this game is. Everybody is in the pot. But it’s enough money for everybody.”

The Lox rapper also shared that he’s toying around with the idea of doing a mixtape tour with DJ Drama, Green Lantern and possibly Fabolous.

Stay tuned to as more information on the album becomes available. —Brooklyne Gipson
