The L.O.X Aka D-Block - Top 10 Songs of All Time - Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, Styles P
The Warlocks and Bad Boy Records
The L.O.X or D-Block is an American rap group consisting of rappers, Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch. The trio grew up together in Yonkers, NY and formed a group known as "The Bomb Squad" while in high school. Later, the name would be changed to "The Warlocks". During this time, the group was starting to gain recognition for their lyrical ability and stories of street life in NY. One of their biggest admirers was "The Queen of Soul" herself and fellow Yonkers native, Mary J. Blige. Mary passed their demo tape to the CEO of Bad Boy Records, Sean "P.Diddy" Combs who would sign them to a deal. It was Diddy's decision to shorten the group's name to "The L.O.X" which stands for Living Off eXperience.
The L.O.X eventually wanted to be released from Bad Boy Records because they were trying to establish themselves as a "hardcore rap group" and Bad Boy was known for it's radio friendly dance hits which did not fit the groups image. The group struggled to be released from the label but when all the lawyers and conference calls didn't work, The L.O.X took it upon themselves and went to the streets. They started the "Let The L.O.X Go" movement at a NY concert where they sported "Let The L.O.X Go" t shirts and screamed "Free The L.O.X". The pressure resulted in Bad Boy ultimately releasing them from their contract. The group would then join the newly formed Ruff Ryders/Interscope label.
Ruff Ryders Entertainment
The L.O.X signed to Ruff Ryders Entertainment, who were in charge of managing the careers of fellow members, DMX, Cassidy, Eve, Swizz Beatz, Drag-On and Jin. The group would go on to have much success with this label.
