Jadakiss once rapped, “Forget about the condo and come to the crib.” On this episode of #BLX, we did exactly that. Watch as the Yonkers-born MC gives us a tour of his ‘hood, beginning with his childhood home. Plus, find out how his block shaped his hustle, lyricism and The LOX.  Then in the age of #BlackLivesMatter and racially charged crimes headlining news, Jadakiss explains the inspiration behind his hit 2004 single “Why.” Although released eleven years ago, the Havoc-produced track raised questions that are more applicable now than ever. Find out how Jadakiss got his stage name and where the infamous ‘aha’ originated.
