I Love You (A Dedication to My Fans) - The Mixtape by Jadakiss on Apple Music

11 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Instantly recognizable with his raspy flow and intricate lyricism, New York's Jadakiss has been spitting wisdom since the mid-‘90s, first with The L.O.X., then D-Block, and as a solo artist. Prolific with the mixtapes (this is his eighth in eight years), he presents I Love You as a dedication to his fans, a short-but-solid collection that follows up his previous album The Last Kiss. It's exactly what the people want and expect from him, rugged verses atop grimy beats, with a minimum of floss and a maximum of ferociousness. Guests include Emanny on the single "Hold You Down," Pharrell on "Lil Bruh," and Trae Tha Truth with Rick Ross on "Inkredible," while his D-Block compatriot Styles P delivers a cold verse on "Lay 'Em Down." Refreshingly rowdy music from a veteran mic crusher who shows no sign of slowing down.

About Jadakiss

Jadakiss (born Jason Phillips) became a member of the Ruff Ryders in 1999. Five years earlier, he joined the LOX (who started their saga as a group called the Warlocks) and has remained a member of both groups since. Jadakiss released his debut solo album, Kiss tha Game Goodbye, in August 2001 on the Ruff Ryders/Interscope label. Three years later, second album Kiss of Death was released. Last Kiss arrived in 2009 with the mixtape I Love You (A Dedication to My Fans) following in 2011. In 2013 he dropped "Big Boy Dialogue" as the lead single from his fourth studio album, but Top Five Dead or Alive wasn't released until late in 2015. ~ Kerry L. Smith
