Jadakiss Talks Acting, Next Lox Album

Kiss talks the silver screen, as well as his next release with Sheek and Styles.

Taking cues from Ice Cube, Common, LL Cool J and others, Jadakiss has entered the acting world.

Speaking with Vibe, the Yonkers rapper revealed that he's already filmed his first role. "I just did a little part in a movie in Philly over the last month, called Must Be The Music written and directed by Charles 'Roc' Dutton. Black Thought is in it, Snoop from 'The Wire,' Kat from 'The Bad Girls Club,' one of the Atlanta Housewives. It should be a pretty good movie," explained Kiss.

"I got a nice little part. I got some dialogue with Charles. It's not like a cameo. But ain't like a Brad Pitt part either. And it ain’t where you just see me sweeping the floor."

Jada explained that he wants to do more acting, and noted that he has the voice to do voice overs in an animated film. "I can be one of these squirrels… one of these birds, or dolphins or something, or pandas or monkeys, or seals," he said, laughing.

As for his ultimate role? "King of New York. Just replace Christopher Walken with me. Keep everything the same. It's just me. Picture me instead of Christopher Walken. That shit would be crazy. You got to redo the whole King of New York with me."

Jada also spoke about the next Lox album. "I don't know what's going on with it. We're trying to work it out. We're trying to get to a solid number so we can get working. There are a lot of hands in the pot. It's just about catering to all of the hands. It's so many, though; it ain't really that much money to go around, but we're going to work it out or we're going to chop some of these fucking hands off."

Kiss did add that there is about "an album and a half" of music recorded for the Lox record, and that his next solo project would likely be called Top 5 Dead or Alive.

    you know, I'm a fan of the entire Ruff Ryder crew, but nobody in the lox can really carry themselves over an entire solo record. I know there are some hardcore Styles fans and what not, but I think these guys really struggle to put together 13 solid tracks without a bunch of features and keep a listener interested. The group dynamic is where they shine, and there's nothing wrong with that. If the money ain't right, it likely never will be, but take what you can get and make a solid record, and then try and leverage that into a new situation for another Lox album, cuz that's what people wanna hear, more so than your solo joints.

    "And it ain’t where you just see me sweeping the floor." lmao. They got too many hands in they pockets period due to bad management and understanding of contracts. Hope they find a way to make this album happen for the fans. Much success JADA.............

    I've lost faith in a LOX album. SP is the only one consistently putting out new, dope music. Jada and Sheek you hear from every now again. They ain't done with, but don't hold your breath on a album.
