What are 3 lessons you can learn from listening to Jadakiss’s Ignatius album?

Hey did you ever wonder what makes Jadakiss so legendary? Let’s go on this journey of lessons with me into the Ignatius album.

  1. Always Pay tribute to those who mean the most to you.

In life everyone has someone to look up to and guide them when they need it most. This album is a result of words and ideas given to Jadakiss from Ignatius Maurice Jackson who was not only Jadakiss’s manager but best friend as well. Jadakiss figured the best way to get his feelings out and in the open was to create music applying all pieces of advices handed to him from Ignatius. In the breakfast club interview you can hear more about the importance behind this album to Jadakiss.

“Before you pick up speed, you gotta get traction
To see yourself bleed is a different reaction
What you want and what you need is a different attraction
End of the day, long as you gettin’ your backend
Before we split the profit, we puttin’ it back in
In the name of Ignatius Maurice Jackson.”

2. Keep It 100

Sometimes people will lie to keep from disappointing or hurting who they love but Jadakiss dedicated track 3 to keeping it real. He breaks down scenarios in this song just to give an example of what happens when people around you don’t keep it 100. On the flipside he raps about the bond that’s created when you have loyalty with a person.

“Friends turn into brothers when they been with you the longest.”

3. When you put out an album, collaborate with other artists who possess legendary lyric ability and provide quality.

Jadakiss is a legendary artist out of Yonkers, NY who released his fifth studio album, Ignatius this March but has been in the game since the 1990’s. He can literally work with any music artist he chooses therefore his music features say a lot. On Ignatius you will find features from Pusha T, John Legend, 2 Chainz, Rick Ross, Ty Dolla $ign, Dej Loaf and more.

Conclusion

This is the Jadakiss all his fans were waiting for. This album is a classic and this music is going to last. Two of my favorite records are “Angels Getting Pedicured” and “Gov’t Cheese.”

Thank Me Later.

Lady Radikal Exclusive Fashion Interview

 

I had the chance to interview the owner of Clothing Brand, Lady Radikal. The owner, Yur Majesty and I discussed the origin of his designs and upcoming goals.

Yur majesty started his clothing brand to create clothes for all individuals including tall individuals that had difficulty finding clothes that fit them properly.

His designs are original and creative and most importantly custom made. Some of his hoodies have circle cuts in the chest area to allow hoodies to be worn for not only comfort but sexiness as well.

He also has a veil design that allows women to wear a hoody and put their veil down if they would like some form of privacy. It provides a mysterious look for the person wearing the hoody.

If you see someone with a Lady Radikal piece of clothing don’t expect the same shirt or hoody to be sold to you because he makes one of everything making everyone’s clothes unique.
