Jadakiss has signed to Roc-A-Fella/Ruff Ryders and will release his third, as-yet-untitled studio effort next year. The rapper's two previous efforts, 2001's "Kiss Tha Game Goodbye" and 2004's "Kiss of Death," bore the Ruff Ryders imprint but were worked through Interscope.

"Kiss of Death" entered at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 upon release and has gone on to sell 1.03 million units in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The effort was helped by the popularity of its singles, "Time's Up" featuring Nate Dogg, "Why" featuring Anthony Hamilton and "U Make Me Wanna" featuring Mariah Carey.

Jadakiss has previously been engaged in beefs with Roc-A-Fella artist Beanie Sigel, but the pair buried the hatchet several years ago at a concert in Philadelphia. They have since appeared on DJ Khaled's 2006 album, "Listennn ... The Album."
