Jadakiss Joins Kenyon Martin’s “Neat & Unfiltered” Podcast as Co-Host
Season 2 starts on Feb. 3 and episodes drop weekly on all streaming platforms
Today, BasketballNews.com announced that NBA All-Star Kenyon Martin has added a high-profile co-host to his podcast “Neat & Unfiltered.” Chart-topping rapper Jadakiss has joined the show as the co-host, starting with the season-two premier on Feb. 3. One of the most distinctive and regarded voices in hip hop is bringing his talents to the podcast space.
The first season of “Neat & Unfiltered” featured 10 episodes, with Martin interviewing high-profile guests such as Method Man, Roy Jones Jr, Daniel Wu, Michael Eric Dyson, and Michael Rapaport among others. Season two will feature plenty of big-name guests once again, as well as Martin and Jadakiss discussing sports, hip hop and a wide variety of other topics.
New episodes of “Neat & Unfiltered” will now drop every Wednesday at noon ET. Each video episode is available on YouTube and BasketballNews.com, and the audio-only version is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and all other streaming platforms.
“Jadakiss is arguably one of the most influential and lyrical rappers in hip-hop, so having him as my running mate on 'Neat & Unfiltered' was a no-brainer," said Kenyon Martin. "We have a game-plan for season two that will be unmatched by any podcast out there. Stay tuned!”
"If you know me, then you know I love talking basketball,” said Jadakiss. “And Kenyon is a long-time friend of mine, so this is perfect.”

Martin, a fearless player who never shied away from confrontation or speaking his mind, played 15 seasons in the NBA with the New Jersey Nets, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks. After being named the National College Player of the Year, he was the No. 1 pick in the 2000 NBA Draft. He became an All-Star and averaged 12.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks over the course of his career. Martin was a fan favorite due to his style of play and big personality. He also writes articles for BasketballNews.com.
One of his generation’s most respected rappers, Jadakiss got his start with the LOX before transitioning to a successful solo career. He released “Kiss tha Game Goodbye” (2001) and “Kiss of Death” (2004) — both of which charted Top-10 and were certified gold by the RIAA. In recent years, he's added voice-actor to his titles (Netflix's “Fearless”) and continued to release music, including the Fabolous collaboration "Friday on Elm Street" (2017) and "Ignatius" (2020).
“Kenyon and Jadakiss have been close friends for many years and they have terrific chemistry,” said Alex Kennedy, BasketballNews.com’s Chief Content Officer. “They both say whatever is on their mind, so this will be fun!”
