V Exclusive: Jadakiss Upcoming Movie Roles, Wanting To Get Down w/ Disney and Osama’s Death [PG.2]
You got a feature role in there?
I got a nice little part. I got some dialogue with Charles. It’s not like a cameo. But ain’t like a Brad Pitt part either. And it ain’t where you just see me sweeping the floor.
It’s going to be in theaters?
Yeah, they’re going for the big theater—they’re going for a feature film.
So are you trying to get into more acting roles?
I want to do more acting and I want to do voiceovers, too. I want to get in some of these animated joints; that’s where the money’s at. I think I got the voice. I know I can do it. I can be one of these squirrels… one of these birds, or dolphins or something, or pandas or monkeys, or seals [Laughs].
Do one of those Disney movies and you’re good for the rest of your life.
Let me get in! They don’t want to let me in –Madagascar, Shrek 7. Let me get in one of these shits. Please! I’m built for this.
What would be your ultimate role?
King of New York. Just replace Christopher Walken with me. Keep everything the same. It’s just me. Picture me instead of Christopher Walken. That shit would be crazy. You got to redo the whole King of New York with me.
Speaking of movies, I want to get your take on Biggie’s son CJ doing his acting thing.
He’s coming up. He got something opposite of Will Ferrell. I’m proud of CJ for that. I’m glad.
Yup, do you stay in contact with him?
I stay in contact with Faith and check on him from time to time. I want to go see him more often, but I don’t get a chance to. I always think about him though. He’s very intelligent. He’s special. He’s the son of Biggie. He already knows that. He doesn’t even have to think twice what it is. That’s his pops in him. Big was smart. That’s why his bars were like that. His mom’s was a teacher. Big was very smart. Anything he ever could ask from me is done.
Before I forget, what’s going on with this Lox album?
I was going to ask you the same thing. I don’t know what’s going on with it. We’re trying to work it out. We’re trying to get to a solid number so we can get working. There are a lot of hands in the pot. It’s just about catering to all of the hands. It’s so many, though; it ain’t really that much money to go around, but we’re going to work it out or we’re going to chop some of these fucking hands off.
Musically, have y’all done anything for it yet?
We got a bunch of music. We always do music and then we get discouraged and stop and on top of that we got about an album and a half. That shit will probably just go to mixtapes. We got songs right now that if we were to leak them, it would create a buzz, but then it’s like what’s the buzz for? Politics going to get involved, that’s why we don’t let any of those shits out. We work every day. We see each other or we work a few times a week, whether it be featuring on a solo or just doing something and stashing it or freestyle together. We ain’t done. We’re together. We don’t have to send postcards. We see each other every day.
Didn’t you announce a title for your next album?
Top 5 Dead or Alive baby.
That’s locked in –100%?
Nothing is 100%. The only thing guaranteed is death. That’s the only thing that’s 100%, that you’re going to die.
One last thing with that subject, as a life-long New Yorker what do you think about Osama’s death and Americans celebrating it?
I’m not personally celebrating, but if that’s what the families of the loved ones and the victims who died in 9/11 needed for closure, I understand that. That’s understandable. I’m ready to see what’s going on with the next round of the NBA playoffs. I’m not a politician; I don’t really get into that. I have family and friends that are Muslims and I’m happy for those that are happy for those that couldn’t sleep and now they’re able to rest and exhale and get on with their lives. May the Lord bless them. But me, I got my own problems. I’m looking for a nigga named Ben Williams that owe me some money. I’m looking for Ben Williams. He owes me $500. Leave on this note, I Love You is a must have for the summer. When you’re driving home from school, you need that in your iPod, your iPad, your mp3, your cookouts, your parties, graduations, bar mitzvahs, baby showers, raccoon lodge [ahhaaaa].
