Does Jadakiss need to make a great album now?
 

 
So after the verzuz battle, I've seen a lot of people, including LeBron, claim Jadakiss is the most underrated rapper of all time. I mean, Kiss even released an album a few years ago called 'Top 5 Dead or Alive' so clearly believes it too.

In terms of skills and stage presence, that might be, but unlike all the other greats who claim top 5, Kiss has never released a classic or even great album.

For whatever reason, he's never been able to shake off the generic album formula of street track, club banger, song for the ladies - repeat. This was even the case on the newest LOX Album.

Here's a single off his last project, 'Ignatius', that proves my point...


So what I'm asking is, can Jada really claim Top 5 without ever putting out a great album? Do you think he's got a great album in him? And why do you think he never has?

He has great albums but not a classic.

You could argue Em don't have 1 either.

KTGG = KOD>>TLK>>>>>>>>>top 5 doa

Kiss of death like purple Haze or whatever Carter album you want to put up there is what I call a "boxden classic"

Kiss also not top 5 dead or alive. Maybe alive alone. Maybe in terms of just hot 16s

fu*k you OP

But Jadakiss thinks he's Top 5, and I think he should be based on talent. But he's never been able to get away from the Fat Joe album formula.

I want to feel about a Jadakiss album the way I'm feeling about Kings Disease 2 - but I can't. Becuase for some reason, Jadakiss stays chasing old fashioned radio singles.

I love Kiss, but I only like his albums. I want him to work with one producer, lock himself away and drop a classic.

Why won't he?

He (and Joe and Fab and others) are trying to use a formula BIGGIE used that doesn't really work for anyone else

You might like it, might have sold, but it wasn't a well reviewed album. And 1 million percent cannot be compared to any legitimate Top 5 artist album - especially debut.

Nobody speaks in the same way about that as Illmatic, Doggystyle, Ready to Die, Reasonable Doubt or even Get Rich or Die Trying.

People are hating but everything I said is correct.

I want a great Jadakiss album and the culture deserves one.

It was cool. I liked it but not as much as I should for the artist i saw k*ll Dipset this week.

His albums don't match his greatness.

Remember that thread a few weeks ago about Black Though and Jadakiss, Felt like I was the only one repping for Kiss in there, dudes were f*ghting me tooth & nail.

But anyhow,

Black Though could NOT have done what Jadakiss did at MSG, for many reasons.

Just wanted to get that off.

The streets might like it but here's what the critics thought. Never seen a classic album reviewed like this...
