    Jada's a bit like a Big L to me, tremendous ability but I'm left wanting a little more with his discography. I love the first album, second one's alright even though it's got better reviews but I really feel like his beat selection deteriorates as it goes through - I dunno it's not poppy but I don't f--- with the style of some of the songs. I love him when he's gritty, which I feel more on the debut.

    Like they're still good albums, they're not bad at all but he's seriously so f---ing good and knowing his ability I'm just wanting more in some parts of his discog.

    Where you at with one of the GOATs discogs?

    Extremely boring sadly, he's someone who I really appreciate when he's doing freestyles on his old mixtapes or guest features.

    He was just never capable of focusing that talent into a cohesive project--his first two albums were 20+ tracks, had he taken the best songs out of both into one project it could have been fire.

    Jada's a great rapper in small doses but he needs needs someone else to play off or he starts to lose focus

    Don't feel bad, he's one of those GOATs that for some reason I just never got around to listening to until recently. We've all got one or two of those on our resumes.

    It really frustrates me with people like him and L where they're phenomenal but it doesn't translate into good projects. Like I don't wanna f--- around looking through guest features and loosies I just want a good LP.

    Jada musically s----s on L though, his flow, rhymes and I don't know if I'd call them quotables but just consistent meaningful/smart bars are possibly as good as I've heard. Like so many lines you could pass of as legit sayings irl like they make so much sense... if that makes sense?

    Yeah that's how'd I'd describe his punchlines too; quotables that could pass off as everyday sayings.

    Between him, Fabolous & Lloyd Banks they simply lacked the originality and musical direction to craft a great album. Sucks for us NYers since we lacked a figure after Jay & 50 waned. Juelz Santana too actually.

    Yeah, I remember when I was like 11 or 12 and hearing Santana k--- a feature and I was so excited thinking I'd found this rapper that was like the personification of a style I loved and then was really disappointed when looking into his catalogue.

    Actually you're spot on with both the other too, Fab's always disappointed me. Even his recent projects which a lot people rave about don't do much for me. He's just f---ing boring and his albums are like Drake albums with all the filler. Into You is nearly my favourite song - I LOVE it. It might be harsh but I'm sure you get what I mean when I see these guys as one trick ponies musically.

    Loved Kiss of Death, listened to that a lot when it came out. I’ve probably heard the rest of them once through sadly.. couldn’t get into them

    He’s a better feature rapper

    he's better with The LOX than solo. Although his albums always have a few gems, he's never put out anything great. Was probably at his best on Money Power Respect

    Keep ya head up came on shuffle this week and after that ive been bumpin kiss the game goodbye a lot throughout the week, really good album. however its the only album i've cared for from him solo-wise, kiss of death had some great songs but i never found myself going back to it and tbh i havent listen to his other albums, should i? I also concur with the one saying he's like lloyd banks if you go by their music ability, lyric wise he's definitely a genius but somehow he has this monotone style which makes me understand the people that thinks he is boring.
