As promised, Jadakiss has released the video for "Me," a track that appeared in his newly released short film by the same name.
The visual is filled with key clips from the Kid Art-directed film, which tells the story of a diamond heist that takes a sharp turn. Jadakiss stars in the nine-minute film alongside Peter Greene and Hassan Johnson.
"Me," which hit streaming services last week, samples Peabo Bryson's 1982 record "Give Me Your Love." The song finds Jadakiss rapping about his status in the game as well as his contributions to the culture over the last two decades.
"Who started off movin' that work?" he raps over the Bryan-Michael Cox-produced track. "Put you in a black hearse, never had a wack verse? Me/Never think, don't react first/Ain't a wild n***a but he still let his Gat burst, me."
You can watch the "Me" video above. The song will appear on Jadakiss' fifth studio album Ignatius, named after his good friend and late manager Ignatius "Icepick" Jackson.
Jackson died in June 2017, following a battle with colon cancer. He served as the Ruff Ryders' A&R and producer, and contributed to some of the imprint's most memorable projects, including DMX's Grand Champ, Eve's Eve-Olution, and Jadakiss' Kiss of Death. Jackson also executive produced the Lox's third studio album, Filthy America…It’s Beautiful.
Ignatius is expected to drop in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned for an official release date.
