One of the best releases during the rap mixtape’s heydays of the Aughts was Jadakiss‘ 2003 drop The Champ Is Here. That combination of lyrical ferocity and aural genius comes once in a blue moon, but Jada has been trying his best to remind people that he is in fact one of the most supremely talented emcees ever with the #T5DOA freestyle he’s peppered throughout the year.
Now those tracks are compiled into one concise mixtape for his fans’ convenience. His assault on Raekwon’s “Incarcerated Scarfaces?” Here. His and Styles P’s update of Cam’ron and Prodigy’s “Losin’ Weight?” Check. Even his take on Drake’s “Hotline Bling” is there also. As a bonus, I’ve taken the liberty in including Shake’s Swizz Beatz-free version of Jada’s single “Jason” as well. Stream and download the 14-track project below, and remember the good ol’ days once again.
As a bonus, peep Jadakiss pulling a Common and busting out some vintage B-Boy moves, courtesy of eskay.
