It's always nice to see singer, songwriters, and lyricists win - especially one as respected as Jadakiss. While Jadakiss has not exactly had the same household name recognition as some of the other commercial juggernauts, Kiss has been one of the game's most consistent and respected emcees, amassing a stellar catalog of solo albums and LOX projects alike. Year after year, Kiss has given us spitting punchlines and introspective bars, having worked with basically every legendary emcee you can possibly think of. Now, the New York rapper has hit a major musical milestone, having officially surpassed one billion global streams.
News of this milestone broke first by Def Jam's official Insta account, who offered congratulations to Kiss on his accomplishment. Even moreso rewarding is given Kiss's desire to never be one to chase trends - it's refreshing too see him benefitting from the loyalty of his fanbase, who has remained by his side since Money, Power, & Respect introduced The LOX to the world in 1998. Next came Kiss Tha Game Goodbye, which kicked off his solo career with classic tunes like the Nas-assisted "Show Discipline" and the Styles P-assisted back-and-forth masterclass "We Gon' Make It."
Congratulations to Jada for this one!
