The LOX's Jadakiss has updated fans on the status of his delayed solo album and how much of a problem mega record label Def Jam has created.
According to Kiss, the headaches he has experienced is no different than what fellow labelmates Jeezy and Fabolous have gone through.
"Me, I'm always sitting on an album though," Jada said when asked about his delayed solo album. "We're always sitting on material. My situation over there at Def Jam is a different [complication]. Def Jam is different right now. I ain't just speaking for myself. You can ask Fab, you can ask Jeezy, [Rick] Ross, you can ask Kanye, anybody. So it got to be right and it got to feel right. Until then, I'm just doing [my thing]. They got this new thing where it's like you're auditioning. I got a whole album. See, with that, it's a lot of stuff people won't ever heard. [Hot 97 executive] Pecas has been to the studio, he's been up there, before [former Def Jam head] Joie left, he been up there. He knows what it is. But I don't know what's going on. I ain't tripping, I'm just working. That's all we do, make music. ... Who don't want to put their album out? I'm just not gonna pass it to you like it's nothing. It's not going to be a filler or a quota." (Hot 97)

Recently producer Swizz Beatz said a LOX reunion album rested in Styles P, Jadakiss and Sheek Louch's hands.
"It started off as a great concept, but you know, I'mma leave that up to Styles, 'Kiss and Sheek," Swizz told "RFL" host Sway Calloway. "We already like 10 joints in, and Khaled definitely has an ear for music and especially bringing along those collaborations, which I think could be a strong point for the LOX. But it's [whatever] the LOX think." Regardless of which direction the Yonkers trio take as far as production and scope for their 2014 LP, according to Swizz, what he's heard already sounds nice. "L-O-X!" he said. "L-O-X!" (MTV)
