In the mist of rumors circulating about Jadakiss, he takes a moment in a recent XXL interview to clarify speculation on his recent label situation with Def Jam as well as a possible deal on the table with MMG that could also involve The LOX.
Now before I let you go, I got to ask about this signing to MMG rumor. Recently you were featured on one of Self Made, Vol. 3‘s new singles, “Oil Money” with Rick Ross. There’s speculation that you might be the next signee. Any truth to that rumor?
The LOX might get an offer from MMG. That’s what that’s about. I’m signed to Def Jam though for three or four more albums. But definitely that was one of the places that were inquirying about the new LOX album. You’ll hear about a couple more. The LOX album is definitely coming.
