Former video vixen and model turned podcast host Melyssa Ford, has been the eye candy for many rappers throughout her career. The sexy scholar — whose hour glass figure, face and frame made her a standout among the competition — has appeared in music videos for Jay Z, Mystikal and Jadakiss.

Following Tuesday’s night Verzuz battle featuring Dipset and The Lox, Melyssa took to Instagram to give the self-proclaimed “top 5 dead or alive” rapper his flowers and share a throwback clip from a “Hollywood Unlocked” episode featuring the lyricist. “He’s always been a beast when it comes to music, but also a humble and nice fucken guy!” she captioned the video.

During the segment, she revealed Jadakiss was a complete gentleman on set of the Knock Yourself Out – the video she also credits with catapulting her career. She recalls being asked to kiss the rapper in a “romantic scene” to which she responded, “Nah. Imma make this video look amazing but I don’t have to swap spit with a stranger to do so.” She revealed Jada’s boys encouraged him to “go in,” but instead Jada played it cool. “He was like I don’t want a lawsuit,” she recalled. Kiss added, “I was a few years ahead of the #metoo movement.”

“He was so respectful, I always appreciated that,” she said.


In other Melyssa Ford news, the educated beauty was involved in a life-altering car accident with an 18-wheeler truck that left her in intense rehabilitation. She eventually left “Hollywood Unlocked” and started her own podcast, “I’m Here For The Food.”
