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].

Premiere: ReeMarkable Turns The Lights Down Low With Sy Ari Da Kid For "VIBE"

Rapper Henree Wright, also known as ReeMarkable, is slowing things down on the sweetest of days with her new single, "VIBE."

With songwriter Sy Ari Da Kid (Future, Waka Flocka Flame) on the track, the two toy with an idea of a relationship after years apart. In addition to the love that lies beneath the games, the song also serves as a great addition to any playlist dedicated to Mary Jane. Produced by Atlanta's 8 Major, ReeMarkable takes a detour from the gritty raps heard on tracks like "Pardon Me" and "Bonnie And Clyde" and into more experimental sounds.

ReeMarkable's journey in music has been documented through her time on the series Growing Up Hip-Hop as the daughter of the late iconic rapper, Eazy-E. As his youngest child, the rapper-singer opened up about her struggles breaking into the industry and how she plans to honor her father through her music.

Recently, ReeMarkable paid homage to her father by recreating his most iconic images. Originally taken by legendary photographer Ricky Powell, ReeMarkable's take is commendable as she barely a striking resemblance to Eazy.

New Music Friday: A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Justin Bieber, Tink

This weekend is Valentine's Day, and artists like A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Justin Bieber and Tink are sure to set the mood with two albums full of romantic tunes. Look below for more new music this week.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie – Artist 2.0 A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie's new album has been a long time in the making by today's standards, with his last project dropping in 2018. Artist 2.0 is appropriate with a Valentine's Day drop, as the album showcases the Bronx artist's versatile R&B melodies. "I've got everything. I've got heartbreak, babymaking, streets..." the 24-year-old told Ebro while visiting Hot 97. "...When y'all hear this album, it's going to be a lot of questions. 'What is he trying to get to?' You're going to hear a switchover on the album, and it's going to be a whole different mood." Guests on the album include Young Thug, Roddy Ricch, Gunna, Summer Walker, Khalid, and Lil Uzi Vert.

Justin Bieber – Changes Changes marks a return to music for the hitmaker Justin Bieber, whose last album was released in 2015. And the title is appropriate: he's turned from a teenage superstar into a married man, and much of the album shows love to his wife, Hailey. Bieber calls on Post Malone, Clever, Lil Dicky, Travis Scott, Kehlani, and Summer Walker for features. Apple Music | TIDAL

Pop Smoke – Meet The Woo 2 (Deluxe) Pop Smoke is one of the hottest new artists of 2020, with his hit "Welcome To The Party" taking over NYC last year and his album Meet The Woo 2 dropping at the top of the year. The album's new deluxe edition includes three new songs: “Wolves” with NAV, and a remix of “Dior” with Gunna, and “Like Me” featuring PnB Rock. Apple Music | TIDAL

Tink – Hopeless Romantic Chicago singer and rapper Tink has shown immense talent through singles like "Treat Me Like Somebody" and "Don't Tell Me Somebody," but a promising record deal with Timbaland appeared to go down the drain after 2017.  Now, after Voicemails (April 2019), she's trending on Valentine's Day with the release of her sensual new project, Hopeless Romantic. Apple Music | TIDAL

YG ft. Kehlani – "Konclusions" In another Valentine's Day drop, the couple of YG and Kehlani release a new love song, "Konclusions." Apple Music | TIDAL

Snoh Aalegra ft. Pharrell – "Whoa (Remix)" Snoh Aalegra's album Ugh, Those Feels Again was one of VIBE's favorites of 2019, and this weekend, the singer teams up with Pharrell for a mellow remix of the album's highlight "Whoa." Apple Music | TIDAL

Migos ft. Travis Scott, Young Thug – GNF (Give No Fxk) Migos has enlisted Travis Scott and Young Thug for "GNF (Give No Fxk)," a song that should satisfy fans waiting for the trio's upcoming Culture III album.

OneUnited Bank Debuts Limited-Edition Harriet Tubman Debit Card

One of the nation’s oldest Black-owned banks is celebrating Black History Month with a special Harriet Tubman debit card. The OneUnited Bank limited-edition VISA debit card symbolizes “Black empowerment,” the company announced on Thursday (Feb. 13).

“We have the power to place Harriet Tubman on a global payment device in celebration of Black History Month,” said One United Bank's President & COO Teri Williams. “This symbol of Black empowerment in 2020 will pave the way for the Harriet Tubman design on the $20 bill.”

But Twitter users immediately noticed that the card features Tubman with her hands crossed over her chest like the “Wakanda Forever” salute from Black Panther. The image of Tubman came from the panting “The Conqueror” by world renowned Miami artist Addonis Parker.

The debit card, which is only be available in 2020, is the first-limited-edition card offered by OneUnited Bank. Besides paying tribute to Tubman, OneUnited pledges to promote the “Right to Vote” theme during Black History Month and to “elevate the #BankBlack and #BuyBlack Movements to the next level and beyond.”

Read some of the reactions to the Tubman debit card below.
