American rapper, Jadakiss, has announced the new release date for his fifth studio album, IGNATIUS, for Mar. 6. The album will feature big names such as John Legend, Rick Ross, Pusha-T and more.
The album was originally set to release on Feb. 28, but was pushed back due to unknown reasons. Jadakiss mentions how this album is meant to celebrate the life of Icepick Jay, and the single, “Hunting Season,” is a metaphor about taking out MC’s in the rap arena.
“The IGNATIUS album means a lot to me, it celebrates the life of my brother Icepick Jay, another one we lost too soon. It was Jay’s dream for me to collaborate with Pusha T on a new song,” Jadakiss said. “The single we’d planned to release together, “Hunting Season,” is a lyrical metaphor about taking out MC’s in the rap arena, and we didn’t want anyone to confuse it with anything else. So out respect for Jay’s memory, for Pop Smoke’s memory, Pusha and I agreed to put this one on hold for a minute.”
The album is set to feature 13 brand-new tracks, with over 10 different artists featured in eight different songs. Jadakiss recently released his new track, “Me,” earlier last year in October. The song was released simultaneously with a short film, Me, which featured Jadakiss.
