Jadakiss Says Champ is Here Mixtape Will Come When Mayweather and Pacquiao Fight
Earlier this week, XXLMag.com reported that Jadakiss is currently working on a brand new mixtape. Now, although the above-mentioned project doesn’t have a name or release date, J-to-the-muah says he already has an idea of when the next installment of his popular Champ is Here mixtape series is coming.
“We gonna do [Champ is Here] 4 whenever [Manny] Pacquiao and Floyd [Mayweather] sign off,” Jada declared. “Right now it’s a bunch of hoopla over the fight, but whenever they go in for the press conference and sign off for the fight, that’s when we gonna go in. I’ll contact Green Lantern and we’ll get in motion. Of course, I’ll have a foundation to start it, but once they agree, then we’ll go in with the Champ is Here Part 4 campaign.
“The last Champ is Here was for Floyd and Sugar Shane Mosley [in 2008],” Jadakiss continued. “We just try to keep that big tape with a big fight.”
For those keeping tabs on the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight, the chances that this tape will actually drop are slim considering the numerous setbacks the bout has seen. Both fighters have been trying to make the boxing match happen for years, but haven’t come to a happy medium for one reason or another. The latest round of back-and-forth happened earlier this year when Mayweather—who was sentenced to 90 days in prison on a domestics violence charge late last year and is slated to start his prison term on June 1—proposed a May 5 fight, an offer which Pac’s camp declined.
In January, Mayweather said that Pacquiao was being unreasonable in asking for a 50-50 split of the dream match. Then, at the beginning of February, Mayweather announced that instead on going against Pacquiao on May 5, he will now fight contender Miguel Cotto. —Shaheem Reid @ShaheemReid
