"Who's Real" is a song by American hip hop recording artist Jadakiss, released June 16, 2009 as the fourth single from his third studio album The Last Kiss. The song features guest appearances from fellow rappers OJ Da Juiceman and Swizz Beatz; it was produced by the latter.[1] The single was officially released on June 16, 2009.

The original version had a longer second verse: after Juiceman's lines follow the lines by Jusmula (beginning with "It's real funny when a nigga play a C.L.,/ O.S.E., I be trippin' like G.L." and so on). It also contained the word "bastards" in Jada's line "Couple of flips and then stash it, bastards", which got blocked out in the final version, so it would be totally without profanities.

On June 9 DMX's verse from the remix leaked onto the internet.[2] The whole remix was released on June 10. It features his fellow D-Block members Sheek Louch and Styles P along with Eve, Drag-On, DMX and Swizz Beatz.[3] This is known as the Ruff Ryders remix, sparking a long-awaited unification of the Ruff Ryder Entertainment. The single's instrumental was used for a Powerade commercial, and for the Wake Up Calls on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show.
