Jadakiss re-surfaced this week, making a stop by the Power 105.1 morning show, The Breakfast Club, to discuss everything from his life changes to the music.

During the interview, the New York rap vet explained why he grew out his hair for first time in over a decade, how he’s lost weight, and his feelings on the current state of hip-hop music.

Later, Kiss talks about upcoming albums from The Lox and his own solo project, if being a lyricist is still alive, and hating the shiny suit era when he was with Bad Boy Records.
