Jadakiss's debut album, Kiss Tha Game Goodbye, was released in August 2001 on the Ruff Ryders/Interscope label.
The project is slated to have 15 tracks with features from Future, Puff Daddy, Lil Wayne and Nas.
Jadakiss has acknowledged the criticism as, generally speaking, valid, saying the record was done less out of inspiration than out of contract obligations to Bad Boy.
The album produced three singles: "We Gonna Make It" featuring Styles P, "Knock Yourself Out" and "Put Ya Hands Up." Jadakiss is mentioned in Eminem's 2002 song 'Till I Collapse as one of the best rappers in the industry.
One of the most important moments of Allen Iverson's career as a sneaker endorser and his emergence as a cultural icon, Reebok paired the reigning MVP with rapper Jadakiss for a commercial to launch the Answer 5 in 2001.
As organic an on-screen partnership as there's even been in the industry, Kiss, arguably the hottest rapper at the time, dropped bars over a backing track composed of dribbles, sneaker squeaks and swishes.Fellow Lox members Sheek Louch and Styles P are scheduled to appear as well.
