Last week, Washington D.C. welcomed one-third of the iconic “LOX”, Jadakiss; ”Mr Raspy,” himself. Carrying NY on his back, Jadakiss erupted on the stage with that familiar street sound mixed with precision lyrics. With the Howard Theatre at capacity, there was no holding back the fans excitement as Jadakiss lead into tracks from Albums “Top 5 Dead or Alive”, “Kiss of Death,” etc. Featured tracks from The LOX “We Are The Streets” album “Wild out” had the crowd ready to “Knock themselves out”. Hearing Jadakiss live was like an adrenaline shot to the heart of Hip Hop.
