Jadakiss “The Champ Is Here” (2004)

Produced by: DJ Green Lantern

Jadakiss: “I had to do a mixtape for the second album, before it was about to come out. Green actually thought of the name. He sampled ‘The Champ is Here’ [on the chorus] from Will Smith, from the Ali movie. That’s why it was hard to clear, too. That’s Will Smith saying that. We did that [mixtape] and it became strong enough to become Part Two and Part Three. I’m gonna keep them going like Rockys. However many Rockys there are, that’s how many Champ Is Heres there’s gonna be. That’s how I’m always feeling, that [I’m the dude to beat]. That’s how I’m feeling right now.”
