Details Lead Performance: Jadakiss; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

A member of the Ruff Ryder's crew the Lox, Jadakiss is unambiguously hard, a sniveling rottweiler of rage with the full lexicon of gangsta signifiers in his verbal arsenal. On Kiss Tha Game Goodbye, his first solo album, Jadakiss unloads a full clip of odious ''Glocks and bitches'' clichés over pallid Goth-hop arrangements. Given the dynamism of his old band, Jadakiss' misogynist posturing seems beneath him.
