Jadakiss Says “Mixtape Killer Weezy” Will Be Featured On His Album

Jadakiss Says Mixtape Killer Weezy Will Be Featured On His Album

Mikey Fresh from Vibe recently spoke to Jadakiss about his upcoming fourth studio album, Top 5, Dead Or Alive, and who will be featured on it. Kiss mentions that Lil Wayne will be featured on the album, but not just any Wayne, the “mixtape killer Weezy“!

“The L.O.X. is definitely on it. Songs that I got done? Jeezy, Wiz, Chris Brown… I got Weezy on there, too. The vintage Weezy, that mixtape killer Weezy. I got Rozay, but we may do another one. My son’s favorite artist is J. Cole, so I think I got to throw him on there. He loves A$AP Rocky, but it’ll probably be one of them.”

I’m looking forward to hearing this collaboration after their previous collabos “Death Wish” and “It’s Good“. What about yourself ❓
