Rap veteran Jadakiss supports his latest single, “Kisses to the Sky,” which dropped last month, by releasing an official Director’s cut video.
“Kisses to the Sky” features appearances from Rick Ross and Emanny and is slated to appear on Kiss’ highly-anticipated new album, Ignatius, arriving on February 28th via Def Jam (pre-order with exclusive merch).
“The project is beautiful,” Jada told HipHopDX. “It’s not like nothing out there. It’s not turn-up; it’s real pain … it’s just real music. It’s real musical. It’s beautiful. You need it. I love how it’s put together sonically. I think my fans, old and new, will be able to really enjoy this body of work.”
The rap icon has been a skilled and revered hip-hop star for over two decades. From his early days as part of the hip-hop group the LOX (with Styles P and Sheek Louch), Jada went on to blaze his own successful trail over the course of four essential albums and many hit singles. There were collaborations with many major figures, among them Notorious B.I.G., Puff Daddy, Jay-Z, Nas, Mariah Carey, and Fabolous. Outside of music, over the years, Jadakiss has become an entrepreneur with several businesses in his hometown of Yonkers, New York, including a juice bar, clothing store, and website.
