Jadakiss has been a prominent voice in New York for years now, and it looks like commuters in the city will be hearing him on more than his most fire songs.
New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority has launched a new COVID-19 public health campaign, and will be collaborating with 21 iconic voices to create PSA’s for the city’s subways and buses. Jadakiss shared that he will be one of those voices in a post on Instagram.
“Starting February 12th, you will be hearing my voice along with over 20 other iconic voice representing the @MTA on subway platforms and buses all over NYC! S/O @newyorknico for making this happen. I can’t wait to hear this for myself Ahaaaaa.”
The MTA announced the initiative back in November, mentioning big names like Robert DeNiro, Jerry Seinfeld, and Desus and Mero as potential voices for the project.
“If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, please quarantine at home or seek medical attention. Thanks for helping to keep New York City safe,” Jadakiss says in the PSA.
Nicolas Heller, a prominent media personality in the Big Apple, is also working on the project.
“It has always been a dream of mine to get together a gig of incredible New Yorkers to record new subway announcements similar to what yellow cabs did back in the early 2000s,” Heller said. “I think it’s important for the time that we are in that we have a reminder that we are all strong, we are still here, we are still New York. If all goes according to plan, it will spark a sense of New York pride every time you take the train.”
Hopefully Jadakiss’ voice will inspire New Yorkers to stay safe during this time.
