J-Hood Is The Man That Is Beefing With Jadakiss
Joshua Hood, better known as J-Hood, was born on July 12, 1984, in North Carolina. He has been in the mixtape game for years.
He has done many collaborations with his close friends The Lox/D-Block, as well as other non D-Block members, such as Cassidy, Jin, J.R. Writer, and The Ruff Ryders. In, 2007 he asked to be released from D-Block/The Lox and since then has been beefing with them every since.
Here is a quote from J-Hood on why he left the group
“I wasn’t just an artist on D-Block. I actually helped start this brand. I was a co-founder of this company.,” said J-Hood. He continued, “Lox is a 3-man group. You didn’t hear of D-Block until I stepped on the scene.”
J Hood would then continue to elaborate further on the situation as the interview continued. He further explained his involvement and contract dealings with The Lox.
“We sat down collectively and came up with the idea to start a movement and the plan was to have me at the head of the movement. I was going to be the first artist then we came up with the name.,” says J Hood.
He continued, “At the time they didn’t want to let me out my contract. So I felt like if y’all not doing what y’all supposed to be doing as far as holding up your obligations or whatever the case be just let me do what I do. Because I had other people that were interested in me at the time. So I felt like you guys are just trying to hold me until no one is interested no more. That obviously made me upset. Because now you’re taking money out my pockets that I could be using to feed my family.”
