The LOX Inhale The Wisdom & Exhale The Stress On A New Loosie (Audio)
One month ago, Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch showcased a must-listen single from Statik Selektah’s upcoming 8 album. Featuring ’70s-’80s legend James Mtume, “But You Don’t Hear Me Tho” is a nostalgic walk-back to yesteryear in New York City, Hip-Hop, and life in general.
“Hit A Roach” honors LOX tradition too. With a dreamy beat and haunting vocal sample, Holiday Styles, Sheek, then Jada’ reflect as they exhale the pain and stress. Louch gets especially personal, recalling learning of a loved one’s fatal illness while overseas. ‘Kiss admits a sensitive side when dealing with his mother and faith. Smoking is not just recreation for the Y-O squad. It’s coping and survival. Of course it is a get-high record, but a deeper dive, focusing on why this trio has been rolling up for more than 20 years of their power, money, and respect.
The LOX dropped this loosie in support of an ongoing Key To Life Tour with Statik and Smoke DZA. Less than a year ago, the crew released Filthy America…Is Beautiful in conjunction with JAY-Z’s Roc Nation.
