Jadakiss and Swizz Beatz Deliver a Powerful Message in “Jason” Video
Jadakiss drops the visual for "Jason" featuring Swizz Beatz. The Clifton Bell-produced black and white video is rather moving. In the opening seconds, it sets the tone of a horror film but goes on to tackle issues much bigger than any scary movie. Swizz takes on the first verse of the song, rapping alone and amid a crowd of rowdy people in an alley. Viewers are shown a group of cops speaking with a young male, but the conversation goes south and the officers begin to get violent. Jada and his crew then decide to take things in their own hands, dressed in hoodies and masks, some of which bear the American flag. As for the New York rapper, he wears a white hoodie that reads, "Do Something." Jada and his crew continue to rap lyrics that reflect much of the social unrest the country has been experiencing over the last year. They tell the officers to stop with masks over their faces and weapons in hand. The cops eventually let the man go and engage in a stand off with Jada and his group. As the visual ends, the words "Don't Shoot" appear in red Check it out above.
The Yonkers native is getting ready to put out his new studio album, Top 5 Dead or Alive, a follow up to 2009's The Last Kiss. Earlier this year, he confirmed that Lil Wayne, Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross, Chris Brown and perhaps J.Cole or A$AP Rocky will be on the new LP. The project does not have a release date at this time but fans can expect it before The LOX's forthcoming We Are the Streets 2 project.
