Jadakiss lately opened up about how a lot he “really hated” ghostwriting for Diddy on a brand new episode of The Private Occasion Podcast.
“I really hated it. Puff, after giving him “[It’s All About] The Benjamins,” “Señorita,” “Victory.”… A few remixes—I used to really feel prefer it was taking away an excessive amount of of me,” he defined. “I ain’t know how to morph. It ain’t like he a n***a that I knew my whole life that I can just scribe him how I think he should be.”
He additional defined how he didn’t know Diddy effectively sufficient to put in writing from his perspective.
“I ain’t feel like I could write the bars for myself and give it to him because I ain’t feel like it fit him,” he continued. “He had too much money. I was still extra grungy. My mind couldn’t think of that much Versace or being on that type of financial level. So it used to conflict with me writing for him. But he just used to tell me, ‘Give me the shit that you would say for you.’ I’m like, ‘It ain’t gon’ fit for you.’ But he used to know how to make it work.”
Neither Jadakiss’ solo album nor his full-length venture with The LOX had been launched when he wrote for Diddy.
In 1997, he made visitor appearances on Diddy’s debut album, “Puff Daddy, No Way Out.” That following 12 months, the LOX launched their debut album, Cash, Energy & Respect.
