The LOX Are Back On The D-Block (Audio)
Disappointed with the commercial, radio friendly direction of their label, New York City collective The LOX made news in 1999 when their street fueled, “Free The Lox” campaign caused enough stir to push Bad Boy Records to release the hardcore rappers from their unwanted contract. This move opened the doors for the trio to link up with their longtime managers on the Ruff Ryders/ Interscope label and subsequently started their own company in 2003 with D-Block Records.
One year after joining the team at Ruff Ryders, The LOX unleashed their second album produced mostly by Swizz Beatz, We Are The Streets. Back on the D-Block 14 years later, Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, and Styles P regroup for their upcoming album release, We Are The Streets 2, the follow up to the original 2000 release.
In anticipation of the project, Jada, Donnie G, and The Phantom unleash some memorably quick witted, street influenced lyrics the trio are famous for over pulsating horns and organ samples that flood their latest cut, “Salute A Gee.”
