The LOX

Biography

The LOX — an acronym for “Living Off Experience” — certainly are a Yonkers, New York-based rap trio who worked their way up with the Poor Son training camp, writing and rapping on hits by famous brands Puff Daddy, the Notorious B.We.G., Mary J. Blige, and Mariah Carey before liberating their debut recording in early 1998. Sheek (Shawn Jacobs), Jadakiss (Jayson Phillips), and Designs (David Designs) started rapping together within their years as a child. By enough time they reached their past due teens, that they had resolved on the LOX name (using their unique moniker “the Warlocks”). Ultimately, they fulfilled Mary J. Blige. Impressed by their demonstration tape, Blige forwarded the tape to Sean “Puffy” Combs, who employed the trio as authors. Between 1996 and 1997, the group had written and performed on several Combs productions, including his personal “It’s ABOUT the Benjamins” and “I ACQUIRED the energy,” Mase’s “24 Hrs. to reside,” Mariah Carey’s “Honey,” the Notorious B.We.G.’s “Last Day time,” Mary J. Blige’s “Can’t ENABLE YOU TO GET Off My Brain,” and Zhané’s “Sunday Evening.” The LOX received an urgent boost in the summertime of 1997 when their tribute towards the past due Biggie Smalls, “We’ll Generally Appreciate Big Poppa,” was selected because the B-side of Puff Daddy’s worldwide number one strike “I’M GOING TO BE Lacking You.” The one was the largest strike of 1997, placing the stage for the January 1998 discharge from the LOX’s debut, Cash, Power & Respect, which proceeded to go up to number three over the pop record chart. Following a change to the Ruff Ryders label camp, WE HAVE BEEN the Streets implemented in early 2000. Legal issues with Poor Boy held the group from documenting being a unit for a long time to come, however in 2007 a couple of early recordings premiered as Prior to the L.O.X. New materials arrived in 2013 using the shock EP The Trinity, that was implemented in 2014 by its sequel, The Trinity: 2nd Sermon. In past due 2016, almost 2 decades after the discharge of the sophomore work, the LOX revealed their third public LP, Filthy America…It’s Beautiful, on D-Block/Roc Country.
