20 times Jadakiss showed out in a feature.
Jadakiss reaffirmed his Top 5 Dead Or Alive moniker and reminded viewers why he remians one of the hardest notebook rappers of all time. With a pen game more deadly than the corona virus, Jadakiss forced people to give him his flowers after his elite show of grandeur and killer instincts during his obliteration of fellow New York group Dipset during their Verzuz battle at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater in New York City on Tuesday night (August 3).
Not long after the Verzuz, hip hop historian LeBron James declared Jadakiss “the most underrated hip hop artist of all time.”
The Yonkers native, despite not having a proverbial classic album to his name still has a healthy collection of commercial hits, underground hood anthems and freestyles in his arsenal.
Jadakiss remains undefeated on features and still holds the title as the only rapper to have never had a wack verse – a feat he alluded to on one of his most recent singles “Me” from his slightly slept on album Ignatius.
“Who started out movin’ that worth?
Put you in a black hearse?
Never had a wack verse?” Kiss asks on the ostentatious song.
As a solo artist, Jadakiss has won awards, released top ten singles (“U Make Me Wanna,” “Who’s Real”), and sold multi platinum albums (Kiss of Death, Kiss tha Game Goodbye). More People are starting to pay attention to the New York veteran thanks to his Verzuz exploits. The Lox and Dipset both experienced massive streaming surges following their epic show down in New York.
