While freestyling, he eventually met longtime friends Sheek Louch and Styles P. Phillips quickly developed a small underground fanbase and at the age of 12, entered himself into a freestyle competition in Florida where he attracted the attention of the owners of Ruff Ryders Entertainment.

In 2009, Jadakiss released his much-delayed and anticipated third studio album, ‘The Last Kiss’. The first single, “By My Side” featuring Ne-Yo was released in October 2008. Two more singles, “Can’t Stop Me” and “Death Wish”, featuring Lil Wayne were released in 2009.
In 2016, The Lox released their first album in 16 years, titled ‘Filthy America… It’s Beautiful’. The album featured guest appearances from Fetty Wap, Mobb Deep and Gucci Mane, and peaked at number 42 on the Billboard 200.
