jadakiss is a basic ass rapper. thats why nobody give a fuck bout him.

that's why his first 2 albums went Platinum and his third one pushed Gold when album sales went to shit, and also the reason 99% of hip-hop still calls dude for features

Fab and Jada have the same problem with making albums. Although atleast Fab out out a really dope album in Street Dreams.

The more I think about it, Jada is only good for verses, Lox is perfect for him.

Somebody wake me up when Jada or Crook can match or top Mood Muzik 3 or 4...

i'll take Young boss 2 over any mood music any day of the week

This. And lol @ Jada burning a hole into Crooked lyrically. Let's pretend he's somewhat more lyrical than Crooked, just for the sake of the argument. Crooked I still raps circles around Jada.
i donīt need any medicate shit im 100 normal.

Crooked I could outrap Jada in a cypher no doubt but he's never made a real song superior to anything Jada has done

His albums suck because he never stays true to himself. He should've just got it through his head that he's not a commercial rapper and stuck to making grimey NY street shit and catered to his target audience. But every album after his debut was full of different regional sounds, R&B hooks, and mainstream features that left his album sounding like bad compilations.

I'd say there's some validity to those criticisms.  Jada can actually make a strong single and have some commercial music as well but sometimes his albums struggle for that consistency. I think Big found the right formula in terms of balancing commercial singles with more harder-edged lyrical content on albums. Jada, to me, is an undisputed talent but he's fallen into the category of a lot of great artists when it comes to putting together a solid studio album.

Verse for Verse, it would be a pretty good match. Crooked I would ultimately win out. But, Crooked has never and will never make a song as good Why.

This is the essence of it..

His albums sound like a bunch of rookie marketing interns were assigned the task to "come up with a concept for an album that can appeal to the kids, the girls, the men, and to a lesser extent, the hood".

Comparing his discography to Fab seems relevant in this discussion, not exactly a bragging point though.
I have more hope in the Lox project..

I don't think that there's much of a match, but that's just me. And Why is a great hook with pseudo deep verses. Sounds great and all, but they can't compete with, let's say Let Me Buy You A Drink.

THAT is a touching song that is relatable on a personal level, not some weedhead philosophizing about real basic shit. Why gets the edge over LMBYAD hook-wise (not by far, though), but that's not exactly Jada's fault I suppose.
