The LOX frontman Jadakiss‘ new Top 5 Dead or Alive album has debuted on the sales chart this week after selling nearly 60,000 copies in its opening seven days.
Based on Hits Daily Double, the raspy rapper’s latest solo offering pushed out over 53,000 units.
Early estimates showed the album pushing out at least 48,000 pieces.
Last week, Jada talked about his longevity in the rap game and what keeps him relevant.
In a genre filled with perpetual one-upmanship, getting in the upper echelon ain’t easy. Jadakiss’s secret to his 22-year career is surprisingly simple: “You just gotta keep it organic,” he says. “As long as you keep it organic, they’ll accept. They know when you getting outta your element. They can tell.” (Village Voice)
With his new Top 5 Dead or Alive album currently available, Kiss plans on releasing another project in the coming months.
“The fans, the kids, they want more content, so the long [recording] gaps that I usually take won’t work right now. Imma try and give them two albums in one year.” He’s not leaving you nostalgic heads out, either. Jada teases that he’s “going to do some joints together” with former Ruff Ryders labelmate DMX (who was recently released from prison). “It’s only right. That’s family. That’s the dog!” (Village Voice)
