Jadakiss claims to have hated ghostwriting songs for Diddy and Bad BoyRecords ...

The LOX and Jadakiss began their careers as musicians on Bad Boy Records under the direction of CEO Sean "Diddy" Combs, 52. Diddy also enlisted the group's individual talents as writers for his own benefit, with Jada being a major contributor to many of Diddy and Bad Boy's albums.

Jada revealed that he disliked writing lyrics for Diddy due to the fear that he was losing himself as an artist.

“I used to feel like [Diddy] was stealing too much of me,” Jadakiss, 47, told DZA. “I didn't know how to change. He wasn't a ni**a that I knew my entire life and I could describe him as I think he should be,” says the guy.

Jada explained how Diddy's lifestyle and financial status hampered his ability to write for the mogul.

“I didn’t feel like I could write the bars for myself and give them to him because I didn’t feel like it fit him.”

"But [Diddy] used to tell me, 'Give me the sh*t that you would give for you,' but I'm like, 'It ain't gonna fit for you." "He used to know how to do it, until I became older and realized how simple it was."

The LOX signed with Bad Boy Records in 1996 and released their first album, Money, Power, and Respect, in 1998. Jada and his groupmates would contribute to other albums released by Bad Boy, especially Diddy's solo debut album, No Way Out.

No Way Out, which made its debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, sold several million copies and produced hits such as "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down," "I'll Be Missing You," "It's All About the Benjamins," "Been Around the World," and "Victory."
