The Lox Songs

  • Fuck U Freestyle
    Fuck U Freestyle
    A day after the death of his good friend and collaborator Chinx, Queens' N.O.R.E. has decided to unleash a freestyle over The LOX's "Fuck U," off their 2000 album We Are the Streets, paying homage to all the NY street rappers still doing it as well as those who have moved on to the next life.  The track opens with a clip of Jay Z's tribute speech to Chinx from last night's "B-Sides" concert in NYC, before N.O.R.E. rips a classic hustler's freestyle over the Swizz Beatz instrumental.
  • 3 On 3
    3 On 3
    Capone-N-Noreaga have been in the game since the 90s, but they're still putting out studio albums, with another one on the way in June. Lessons will feature production from Statik Selektah, Large Professor, and Jahlil Beats, and should give New York hip-hop heads more than a few reasons to get excited. Today they've shared one of those reasons, tapping Tragedy Khadafi and all three members of The Lox for some "3 on 3" spitting.
  • Ghost Blunts
    Ghost Blunts
    Styles P is aging gracefully, working hard as ever, but sticking to the lane he knows best. "Ghost Blunts," his first of two freestyles today, finds him taking on a lively guitar loop from Dre's "Puffin On Blunts & Drankin Tanqueray", complimented by some classic boom bap drums, as he delivers a carefully written, punchline-laden verse, always with a mean-mugged delivery but never without a good dose of charisma.
  • Still Bangin (Freestyle)
    Still Bangin (Freestyle)
    Two days ago Styles P got together with his old squad The LOX to spit a verse on "Bring it Back." Today he dropped the crispy new "Still Bangin" freestyle, which basically serves to tell the world that he may be 40 years old but he STILL BANGS AND HE USED TO BANG. He can still show these youngins' a lesson or two. Indeed, with its airtight flow and menacing delivery "Still Bangin" proves its own thesis correct. It is clear the fire still burns within him.
  • Bring It Back
    Bring It Back
    The LOX have been a force to be reckoned with since the 90s, but they largely went their own ways later in their career. Recently, they've decided to unite once again, and the chemistry they had in their heyday is still very much present. They've made the smart decision to stick what they do best, rather than adapt to the times, delivering the same hard-edged boom bap we've come to expect from the trio."Bring It Back," while referring to the beat in the song, is an apt title for what the rappers are doing, but as OGs their aesthetic never feels overly nostalgic.
  • Let's Get It
    Let's Get It
    The Lox delivered a follow-up to 2013's surprise EP The Trinity today with The Trinity: 2nd Sermon. With the new EP available on iTunes now, we've been granted a stream of one of the EP cuts "Let's Get It." This follows up last week's leak "All We Know," which is also on the new EP. Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch go in over a frantic beat that's got that swarming of the bees sound, mixed in with ringing bells. Are you feeling it? For more from these three NY vets, head over to iTunes and grab the EP.
  • All We Know
    All We Know
    The recently reunited LOX got a nice feature on Lil Wayne's latest leak "Gotti" while we await Tha Carter V. Today they keep the new music coming with "All We Know."
  • Gotti
    Lil Wayne’s Carter V just saw a recent set back, so Weezy decided to keep the fans happy tonight and release a public service announcement on the status of the album, as well as this new song called “Gotti” featuring The Lox (Jadakiss & Styles P).
  • Try Me (Remix)
    Try Me (Remix)
    As the group's career has lasted years and survived many different trends in hip-hop, The LOX aren't the group you'd necessarily expect to hop on the hot track of the moment for a remix, but that's exactly what they've done today. DeJ Loaf's fall anthem "Try Me" gets the treatment from the NYC trio. Letting the Detroit femcee's sing-songy delivery inform their verses, Jadkiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch all blend in well with the DDS-produced track, though their voices are no doubt gruffer than Loaf's. 
  • No Selfies
    No Selfies
    The Lox bring back that old school New York feeling on their latest record, which is equally old school in theme, as they say no to the current selfie generation. Over boom-bap production, Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch spit about their Instagram pet peeves and urge people to "stop taking selfies." The new song was premiered by Funkmaster Flex (hence the tags/bombs). Are you about that selfie life or nah?
  • Remember
    It's starting to feel like NYC's 10 to 15 years younger this summer, as the city's powerhouse supergroups have all seemed to reunite to make new music. G-Unit's certainly the most high-profile, especially because they've chosen to freestyle over some of the hottest records of the moment, but Dipset (with Cam's amazing track "Dipshits") and The Lox have been killing the game too.
  • D-Block Survivor
    D-Block Survivor
    After making a surprise appearance at this year’s Summer Jam, The Lox are slowly getting back into their groove. Over the weekend, the NYC trio dropped off a new track titled “Salute A Gee”, and today, they’re back with another war-influenced cut titled “D-Block Survivor”. No word if these recent releases are any indication of an upcoming project, but Styles, Jada and Sheek are definitely gearing up for something. Check out their latest release below.
  • Salute A Gee
    Salute A Gee
    The LOX made a surprise at Summer Jam this year, reuniting on stage during The Roots' set to perform a couple classic tracks. We've been getting new material intermittently from the trio, but we're still holding out for a new full length from the group.Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch, may be planning just that, as their new release, "Salute A Gee" is certainly album-quality. The three rappers trade verses over a punchy New York instrumental, bringing back everything that was so great about the group from the start.
  • Loyal (Ted Smooth Remix)
    Loyal (Ted Smooth Remix)
    Featuring fresh new verses from Jadakiss, Sheek Louch and Styles P, this Ted Smooth remix of Chris Brown's smash hit single "Loyal" is practically a brand new song. Taking a more street-ready approach to the material, Brown's original chorus and third verse are maintained while three fresh verses are laid over a brand new instrumental that hardly resembles the original. In other words, if the radio single was too pop for your tastes, here's the remake that you have been waiting for.
  • All A Dream
    All A Dream
    We've already received one big Mobb Deep collaboration today, the Bun B & Juicy J-featured "Legendary." On top of this, we've received a full album stream for Prodigy & Havoc's The Infamous Mobb Deep double disc album.
  • Sour
    Styles P has just let go of ths new single from his upcoming album, Phantom and The Ghost, which happens to be an ode to a particular strain of weed. The NY spitter enlists fellow LOX member Jadakiss, as well as Atlanta fixture Rocko for the track. Knucklehead provides the twisty banger of an instrumental, which could fit right in with anything coming out of Atlanta these days.
  • Reckless
    Jadakiss, Styles P, and Sheek Louch have recently reassembled themselves as The LOX, and are steadily showing up with new material. The trio surprise-dropped (now known as "pulling a Beyonce") a new 4 track EP at the end of last year, and they're back again on the new track from Trae Tha Truth. Trae generally operates within the realm of Houston rap, but "Talk About It' is a decidedly east coast affair, definitely showing the LOX's influence. It still bears the same dark, cinematic quality that colors much of Trae's work, and works as a representative cut from both parties.
  • New York City
    New York City
    Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch, who compose The Lox, give us another loving ode to the 5 boroughs of New York City in song titled... simply, "New York City" The trio are back at it and making music for all to enjoy since their absence. Well, it would be wrong to infer they ever disappeared but they certainly spent some time underground and they're coming back up to enjoy the sunlight. Not to mention the fact that no one does fan service like The Lox.
  • Closed Casket
    Closed Casket
    Jadakiss contributes to DJ OP’s I Refuse To Lose mixtape with a new track featuring Snyp Life and Sheek Louch. Unfortunately, the third member of the LOX, Styles P, does not make an appearance. We last heard from the "as hard as it gets" rapper when he dropped his The-Dream-assisted single, "Big Boy Dialogue" back in May of last year. No word on when we'll see his long-awaited album, Top 5, Dead Or Alive, but look out for new music from the legendary rapper soon.
  • LOX Mentality
    LOX Mentality
    DaeSmoove talks about having a "LOX mentality" on the track that landed him among our heatseekers finalists, and the NY trio's influence is definitely present in his sound. His grimy rap-style and dark production are reminiscent of many of New York's mean-mug finest, Mobb Deep in particular comes to mind. DaeSmoove has enough personality to transcend the comparisons however, and is certainly a new artist to watch for. If you're looking for more from the 19 year old New Jersey rapper, his track "Dream Believers" is a good place to start.
