Jadakiss has defended Irv Gotti's hopes to secure the role of President of Def Jam, saying that he "spoke the truth."

Irv has spoken publicly about his wish to be at the helm of hip-hop's first and biggest record label and has been supported by several rappers including Jay Electronica. Now, Jada has also come forward in support of the former Murder Inc. Records boss, saying that he supports his reasons for wanting the job.

"He said a lot of stuff that doesn't get said," Jada told MTV News. "He was able to vent without hating on the record labels or channeling any hate. Everything he said - me being on the inside looking out and him being on the inside looking out but now on the outside looking in - I think he nailed every point."

"I think everything he said was excellent, and almost everything was true. ...Def Jam and every other label, it ain't that they're bad record labels; it's just sometimes they don't understand the artists that they have - It's hard for somebody... when you're not coming where I'm from everyday."

Do you agree with Jada's comments? Should Irv be president of Def Jam?
