Even though Adele went straight to the top of the charts with the record-shattering debut of her album “25,” Yonkers rapper Jadakiss can at least celebrate having the second-highest chart debut of the week.
The local juice bar owner enters the Billboard Top 200 at No. 4 with his latest solo project “Top 5 Dead or Alive.” The hip-hop star’s first studio album in 6 years sold 66,000 units, according to Billboard.
“Appreciate the luv,” Jadakiss, whose real name is Jason Phillips, wrote on Twitter. “I see all my real fans got the album.”
The rapper, who is part of the Yonkers rap trio The Lox, is no stranger to the charts. His album “Kiss of Death” made its debut at No. 1 in 2004. “The Last Kiss,” which he released in 2009, entered the Billboard chart at No. 3.
“Top 5 Dead or Alive” features appearances by Mount Vernon-raised rapper/producer Diddy, Nas, Lil Wayne and more.
