Jada takes a walk down memory lane to the year of 2008 when he and his homies in Yonkers were still close to one another.
Jadakiss gets nostalgic in a music video for his song "Without You". The clip opens by taking fans back to Yonkers, New York in 1998 and following Jada and his homies during their younger years. It then switches to the present, showing the rapper sitting alone in the dark and rapping about how he lost those close friends of his.
"Without You" is listed among materials in Jadakiss' mixtape "Consignment". The track is produced by Joe Milly and samples Freda Payne's "I Won't Last a Day Without You", which is a cover of The Carpenters' 1974 song.
"Consignment" itself is a prelude to Jadakiss' next studio installment. While recording his own music, he also works with other artists. Most recently, he teamed up with Pusha T, Kanye West, Big Sean in a remix of Chief Keef's song "I Don't Like".
"Ye passed me that joint to get on, along with some other records," he revealed how he ended up in the remix. "I guess they respect where I come from, 'cus I'ma voice my opinion if I feel weird and s**t's not going right ... when I went, it was all love. It was just good people and good music."
Unfortunately, the remix was slammed by Young Chop who produced the original song. The music maker was furious because the beat, he worked hard on, was changed without his consent, and he was not involved in the process.
