Yonkers honors The LOX with a key to the city.

"Yesterday's price is not today's price," said Fat Joe after witnessing Jadakiss and The LOX completely annihilate Dipset with mixtape cuts at MSG's  Hulu Theatre. The LOX showed out and showcased their strength as a collective and individual MCs. Following the devastating loss of DMX earlier this year, Styles P, Jadakiss, and Sheek Louch have been wearing the Yonkers flag with pride. It's now earned them the key to the city.

During a park unveiling ceremony in Yonkers, Mayor Mike Spano honored LOX with the key to the city which Styles P accepted on the group's behalf. "We recognize LOX. We're gonna give this to you," Spano said as he handed the key to the city to Styles. "He doesn't need it. He could go anywhere he wants but this will confirm it all."
