If you recall, we posted on Kiss’ recent partnership with ALIFE earlier this month.

With the sweltering New York City summer in full swing, we rolled to ALIFE’s Rivington Street stronghold to chop it up with Jadakiss before he took the stage for his exclusive backyard ALIFE Session.

Watch as the OG Gotham emcee weighs in on the state of hip-hop, his opinion of the #youthculture movement, and what he’s got coming next (new Lox album, anyone?) Then, kick back and enjoy as the master hits the stage and tears it down with some of his all-time classics.

A small but committed group of writers, bloggers and videographers that (mostly) exist and function all over the D.C. Metro area.
