So, there was a reason why Jadakiss recently relaunched his #T5DOA freestyle series (“Baby” and “Thot Line Bling“): it was to formally announce that his long-in-the-works new album, Top 5 Dead Or Alive, is coming soon.
After waylaying into a myriad of other peoples’ songs, Jadakiss now takes matters into his own hands: he reunites with Swizz Beatz for a Ruff Ryders-esque trip down nostalgia boulevard. Loaded with patois ab-libs, lyrical taunts and the prerequisite gun talk, “Jason” is darker than any Friday the 13th film released. If this is how Top 5 Dead Or Alive is to sound (and let’s certainly hope so), it could prove to be a welcomed return for Al Qaeda Jada.
SHAKE UPDATE: I don’t know about y’all, but this (and pretty much every) Swizz Beatz verse makes me cringe. Thankfully, Audition exists, and I was able to cut it out. So, if you’re like me, here’s a slimmed-down version with a shortened outro.
