Producer Dame Grease has announced his role as executive producer on the forthcoming LOX album.
According to Grease, Jadakiss reached out to him to be a part of their project.
"It's official, actually, Kiss asked me personally," Grease revealed in an interview. "This was before they were gonna take it to Puff or wherever because the thing is, just checking statistics like the success that we had with The LOX, we all had together and sold 1.5, 2 million records...That was then, but we put the same formula and into the future music."

Last January, Styles P said a reunion with Diddy for the album's release was probable.
"It looks like it's gonna happen," Styles said in an interview about reuniting with Bad Boy. "All the paperwork is right and everything makes sense. Business-wise, it's just a one-off. One album. You know, we gonna do what we gonna do." (Global Grind)
The LOX's Sheek Louch has also confirmed his former Bad Boy Records boss will be involved.
"I got an answer for that, I really think I got an answer," Sheek said about the forthcoming album. "Yo word up, top of the year, Lox album is coming. I would love for it to come then, we're working actually with Puff, with Sean Combs. We working out that. Puff Daddy, we working that out. We working that out and hopefully it goes down. It's gonna be Interscope/Bad Boy/D-Block. Oh yo, slash Ruff Ryders, I'm sorry, I can't leave my boys out. It's like a big thing because we still Interscope. We still Ruff Ryders. It'll be a nice thing." ("On-Air Idiots")
Their Bad Boy album was released in early 1998.
The LOX received an unexpected boost in the summer of 1997, when their tribute to the late Biggie Smalls, "We'll Always Love Big Poppa," was picked as the B-side of Puff Daddy's international number one hit, "I'll Be Missing You." The single was the biggest hit of 1997, setting the stage for the January 1998 release of the LOX's debut, Money, Power & Respect, which went as high as number three on the pop album charts. After a switch to the Ruff Ryders label camp, We Are the Streets followed in early 2000. (All Music)
