The LOX Reminisce on Working with The Notorious B.I.G. (Video)
Today, The LOX are giants in Hip-Hop. However, back in 1996, Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, and Styles P were still on the come-up. Two years removed from an uncredited (pre-Styles) feature on Main Source’s sophomore LP, F**k What You Think, the Yonkers, New Yorkers were the new acts on Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Records. The label’s star, The Notorious B.I.G., personally recruited them to his acclaimed sophomore LP, the multi-platinum Life After Death. The look changed history, and brought attention to a crew that reigns strong through to today.
Featured on “Last Day” from the #1 double-album, The LOX spent days in Daddy’s House Studios, kicking it with one of their Hip-Hop heroes. Jadakiss remembers trying to impress B.I.G. with some party-favors, while they recall the vibe from the Brooklyn O.G. in the final year of his life. In the years that followed, The Warlocks would rep Biggie on the No Way Out album, as well as their own January, 1998 debut, Money, Power, Respect.
