D-Block‘s Jadakiss has announced plans to launch a new BET reality show pitting male and female deejays against one another to win a shot to work with him.
The L-O-X rhyme spitter recently gave details on how the program will be structured.
“I got this show coming on BET finding a new deejay,” Jada said in an interview. “I’m gonna go to Chicago, Miami, Cali, Atlanta, Philly. Pick some males and females, bring ’em back to [Yonkers, New York] and put ’em in the house and make ’em do some P.Diddy sh*t and see what happens…I’ll make ’em dig in some crates and find some wax, see who can really rock two turn tables…See if they can make a beat…And then whoever wins can really become my deejay and go out on tour with me. We’ll probably start recording in two or three weeks or so…Nowadays the rap game is just a stepping stone to do other things.” (iHipHop)
Rick Ross is also working with BET for an upcoming special.
“The Boss done did it all to get money,” Ross said in an interview. “And what you gotta understand is, if rumors surface it wasn’t because, people felt like I didn’t address it. It wasn’t because of my selfish reasons, but what you gotta understand is that when you answer certain things, you gotta go to what was going on and who was involved, what the situation really was. So what we did was we got with BET and we chronicle my life so people can understand that by the time I was 17 years-old, 18 years-old, I was in a nice home, I was in whips, I was doing a lot of different things and I made a few moves.” (Big Boy’s Neighborhood)
Aside from television, Jada is currently preparing for the release of The Last Kiss.
“We got that conglomerate joint out. That Ryan Leslie joint out there. I got a new single, ‘Can’t Stop Me.’ The deejays are loving that. I’m gonna shoot [a video for] that in a minute — the album is crack. You already know we mixing right now. I’m trying to squeeze one more joint off but the album is definitely crack — the covers are gonna start coming. Everything’s gonna start falling in place. It takes a lil’ longer now because the game is different but you know the kid is gonna bubble no matter what’s going on.” (Best of Both Worlds)
The album was re-named late last year.
“I had to change the name of my album. Kiss My Ass wasn’t testing well at retail,” Jada said in a video. “Not even with the exclamations or none of that. So we had to switch it to The Last Kiss…Some people asked me is it my last album, nah, it’s just, the first album was Kiss The Game Good-Bye, the second one was The Kiss of Death so this one was The Last Kiss…It’s the closing of a trilogy. It’s the last time I’m going to name one of my albums, it’s the last time ‘Kiss’ is going to be in the album titles.” (SOHH)
