The Jadakiss Hair subject has been a topic of discussion in recent years with the MC deciding to finally let his hair grow. While Jadakiss keeps his hair relatively low which appears to be no longer than 1.5 in length the fact that he can achieve this still baffles the masses as the misconception around Jadakiss hair is that he’s bald.

Why do People think Jada is Bald?

The misconception around Jadakiss’s Hair exists due to keeping the consistent bald look throughout the majority of his career.

Jadakiss is from the Hip Hop group LOX with members including Styles P & Sheek Louch. Together the 3 grew up in Yonkers New York and entered the rap game in the 90s.

During the 90s other Hip Hop groups such as onyx who were at the forefront of Hip Hop at the time, alongside DMX and common rock the bald look with confidence.

With that being said, Jadakiss was never bald due to hair loss but rather to keep a uniform look with his rap group LOX he made a conscious decision to shave his hair off and keep it this way through his career.

Today Jadakiss is a respectable and established MC, therefore he doesn’t feel the need to rock the bald head to fit the group aesthetic.

Today his hair is kept low with a regular shape up. We estimate his hair is not above the 1.5 length.

In a 2012 interview Jadakiss shared further light on his hair stating that even his mum was under the impression he couldn’t grow his hair as he rocked it bald from the 90s up till the late 2000s.

In addition to this Jadakiss states that he also made the conscious decision to grow his hair out of respect for his incarcerated friend.
