As the most clever lyricist in Ruff Ryders infamous trio The Lox, Jadakiss quickly became the group's star. He spit high-powered rhymes that showcased his above-average skills on each song he recorded, including the ones where he held his own next to heavyweights like Jay-Z. Jada debuts his solo career with the highly anticipated KISS THE GAME GOODBYE. Featuring production by the Neptunes, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, DJ Premier, and others, Kiss Tha Game Goodbye is as good as hip-hop is going to get. As usual, 'Kiss boasts impressively throughout. But his choice of words makes for some very interesting showboating. He proves his diversity with crossover cuts like "Knock Yourself Out," and pleases his original fanbase with sure winners like "We Gon' Make It." Some may have doubted that Jadakiss could do it without the Lox, but after one listen, those naysayers will believe.
Artist Overview
After the break-up of Yonkers-based hip-hop combo the Lox, the three group members--Sheek Louch, Styles P, and Jadakiss--went on to solo careers. Though they all stuck close to their educated, New York gutter style, of the three, it was lead MC Jadakiss who made the biggest strides into the mainstream. He was a longtime affiliate of the DMX supergroup the Ruff Ryders, in addition to having worked with Sean "Diddy" Combs when in the Lox. All of this led to his successful crossover solo debut, KISS THA GAME GOODBYE, and its 2004 follow-up, KISS OF DEATH. Jadakiss reteamed with Louch and Styles as D-Block in the early 2000s.
