Jadakiss really wanted to have his Last Kiss album out on Tuesday, around the time of the 12-year anniversary of Notorious B.I.G.'s death. However, with a gaggle of last-minute studio collaborations, the brutal Yonkers lyricist had his due date pushed back almost a month to April 7. Jada says the wait will be well worth it.
"I just went back in," 'Kiss said of his recording session last week in New York. "I did two joints with Swizz [Beatz]. I got one from [DJ] Khaled by [producers] the Inkredibles [Rick Ross' 'Mafia Music,' Young Jeezy's 'Vacation,' Fat Joe's 'One']. I got Mary [J. Blige] on it. I got another Pharrell joint. You know what it is. As long as they make me keep working and push the date back, I'm going in the studio making more music for the people. Whatever don't go on the album, you definitely gonna get it on the mixtape."
The most visible LOX member's current single is "Can't Stop Me," and he hasn't chosen the follow-up yet.
"I told you I got that joint from Khaled that has Mary on it," Jada said. "I think it's a big, huge record. [I think it's called] 'Grind Hard.' ... Then I have 'What If?' with Nas. That's like an uppercut."
'Kiss said the theme of the Nas featured record is self-explanatory.
"Just a bunch of 'what ifs' " Jada said. "Bunch of realistic, current events and past things. I just asked, 'What if?' I reached out to Esco, and he nailed it. When I say he nailed it, he nailed it!"
