Y. O is about to be back on deck !
“New album coming out late February,” he said before looking over to his rep for the exact date. “February 28. I’m not sure, you know it’s a lot of things in this business with clearances and things of that nature. But new album, February 28, Ignatius! Rest in peace my brother Ignatius ‘Icepick’ Jay Jackson.”
Ignatius will be Jada’s first studio album since 2015’s Top 5 Dead Or Alive. The Def Jam rapper’s upcoming LP is named after and inspired by the aforementioned “Icepick” Jackson, a Ruff Ryders producer/A&R who passed away after battling cancer in 2017.
“The project is beautiful,” Jada told DX. “It’s not like nothing out there. It’s not turn-up; it’s real pain … it’s just real music. It’s real musical. It’s beautiful. You need it. I love how it’s put together sonically. I think my fans, old and new, will be able to really enjoy this body of work.”
