(GEMS RADIO)—-Jadakiss isn’t holding back on his past.
He wasn’t too fond for ghostwriting for Sean “Puffy” Combs. “I really hated it,” he shared. “Puff, after giving him ‘[All About] the Benjamins,’ ‘Señorita,’ ‘Victory,’ a couple remixes, I used to feel like it was taking away too much from me. I ain’t know how to morph. It ain’t like he a n***a that I knew my whole life that I can just scribe him how I think he should be.”
Diddy’s financial success was almost a burden to him.”I ain’t feel like I could write the bars for myself and give it to him, because I ain’t feel like it fit him. He had too much money. I was still extra grungy. My mind couldn’t think of that much Versace or being on that type of financial level. It used to conflict with me writing for him. But he just used to tell me, ‘Give me the sh*t that you would say for you.’ I’m like, ‘It ain’t gon’ fit for you.’ He used to know how to make it work.”
His gritty rhymes didn’t fit into the lap of luxury of Diddy’s back in the day. “All About The Benjamins,” “Victory,” and “Senorita” were all ghost written by Jada.
