The champ is here! Def Jam rapper Jadakiss is in the studio working on a new mixtape. In a recent interview with XXLMag.com, Jada says he plans to release a brand new mixtape soon. The disc will feature all original material and have some guest appearances. An official title and release date has yet to be release. Jada is currently keeping busy by appearing on other artists projects.
“I just did something with John Legend,” he told XXLMag.com recently. “I’m on the new Busta album, I did something for Waka Flocka. A few more people, man.”
As of right now, fans can hear Jada featured on Diggy Simmons “88,” the latest release off of Diggy Simmons’ March 20th LP Unexpected Arrival. Jada says he’s surprised not just about how rugged the track was, but getting the call from the teen sensation to appear on his album to begin with.
“It’s a business at the end of the day,” Jada said. “You can do a collabo with anybody, just don’t compromise what you do. When Diggy passed the song, I was surprised because it had the sample from Jay-Z, ‘still spending money from 88.’ he was doing his thing. I have a little daughter that loves him. I have nieces, goddaughters that love him. Diggy is poppin’ right now. The song is hot, it doesn’t compromise what I do and I’m able to get in his audience, ‘let me get that.’ Plus the check was nice. The check was marvelous!” —
