After addressing their long-awaited and delayed comeback album this week, The LOX relied on local rap stars to help spark even more anticipation with a New York City concert.
Footage of L-O-X celebrating their new EP’s release alongside Busta Rhymes, Jim Jones, M.O.P and more Big Apple studs has started to make its rounds online.
The LOX celebrated the release of their latest The Trinity EP with a concert at Webstar Hall in NYC last night. They didn’t do it alone. Chinx, SBOE, M.O.P, Busta Rhymes, Jim Jones, Mack Wilds, Maino, Bodega Bamz and Troy Ave were some of the special guests invited to the concert. (HHNM)
While he confirmed label offers were still landing on LOX’s laps, group member Styles P spoke on their LP’s delay this week.
“We never broke up as the LOX. We kept our unity as a brotherhood. You don’t hear one of our solo albums without the other two on it. You don’t see one of us anywhere without at least one of us being there, or two of us being there. The lack of our album is due to politics, but we’ll get around the politics, and you will get a body of music — this was like saying, ‘We here, and screw the politics.’ It all kind of worked. Everything is just flowing right.” (Hot 97)
The LOX’s new Trinity EP project hit mega digital retailer iTunes last week.
Beyoncé isn’t the only artist releasing surprise projects online. With fans patiently waiting for a new body of work, The LOX release a new EP out of nowhere on iTunes. Titled The Trinity, the 4-track EP is led by the trio of Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, and Styles P. It includes additional appearances from singers Tyler Woods (“Faded”), and Dyce Payne (“Three Kings”). Like Queen Bey, The LOX’s new release serves as a digital exclusive to the online retailer. Stream “Love Me or Leave Me Alone.” The LOX – The Trinity EP (Tracklisting): 1. “Faded” (Feat.

Recently producer Swizz Beatz said the group’s highly-anticipated comeback 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)
