    He's one of the four or five best MCs breathing. [Aug 2004, p.103]
  2. Kiss of Death is the Jadakiss album that everybody's been waiting for, 'Kiss fans and critics alike.
  3. 80
    Jadakiss' flow is impeccable throughout. [Sep 2004, p.137]
  4. [A] balanced mix of streetwise, club-ready and bedroom-bumping cuts.
  5. Kiss Of Death is uneven: Like Kiss Tha Game Goodbye, it suffers from an apparent desire to satisfy every demographic at once.
  6. When he's undone, it's by tinkertoy production on tracks such as the insipid Mariah Carey Vehicle "U Make Me Wanna." [5 Aug 2004, p.106]

    Great mainstream material, an expensive sounding hip-hop album featuring electro and R'n'B styles to appeal to a wider audience. Jadakiss flows with finesse and his lyrics are of a high standard. What is significant is his ability to collaborate with a host of different producers whilst still maintaining his natural style and substantiating good musical direction. 'Why' is a stand out record and lyrically relevant 5 years later. 8/10 82/100 Expand

    Jada's material was hot in 2004 and it's still hot now. Kiss of Death was my favorite album of 2004. I remember when I overplayed this album in my room and everywhere. This is a must have album. People under estimate Jada. His lyrics are insane and also his flow. Every project he drops is hot. I recommend this to everybody who loves Rap Expand
