The Lox frontman Jadakiss recently spoke on his former boss Diddy wanting to release the group’s upcoming album on Bad Boy Entertainment and shared his thoughts on the record industry.
Along with speaking on Puff, Jada also broke down the sluggish sales market.
“The game is f*cked up right now, it’s a jungle,” Kiss explained. “It’s the dog years right now. N*ggas is doing baseball numbers, especially without having a big radio single. The game is f*cked up right now, find you another hustle. Wash cars or something…[Diddy] want that new Lox album on Bad Boy. That’s merely a conversation though, we ain’t take it no where yet. [It could happen,] yeah, we gonna do what we do. We got nothing to do with what the labels doing, we gonna do us baby. So I think it would work.” (57th Ave)
Kiss previously discussed the possibility of the LOX reuniting with Diddy.
“It’s always possible,” Kiss said referring to the label jump. “We’ve learned anything beneficial to L-O-X or anybody in our camp as long as it’s beneficial for us is okay. It’s about knowing what you getting involved in before you get involved. That first contract we signed, we ain’t really know and a lot of people do that. We learned, we found out quicker that most dudes. Whenever I signed a contract ever in life after that first one going to be beneficial for me more than anybody or it won’t have my signature on it….Only thing that separates D-Block or L-O-X is jail or death. No money, people trying to get in your ear trying to divide and conquer, none of that is gonna work.” (Street Heat)
While not giving out a specific release date, Jada has promised the project will drop towards the end of 2009.
“We got a new Lox album, finally, coming Christmas time” Kiss said in an interview. “Fourth quarter baby. Fourth quarter, fourth quarter, The New Lox Order is coming.” (Hard Knock TV)
Puff has recently been seen supporting Kiss by announcing him as a Ciroc Vodka spokesperson.
“It’s a big, big, big, big day tomorrow,” Diddy said in a P. Twitty video earlier this year. “Tomorrow this comes out right here, The Last Kiss. You gotsa have that. We just did deal we just probably sponsored a tour, some of the videos everything else. The family is back together.” (P. Twitty TV)
Lox were previously signed to Bad Boy Records but tried to get out of their contracts in the late 1990’s.
The trio were unhappy with their position, they claimed they were being presented as manufactured and for the mainstream. This accumulated in a massive campaign to get the Lox off the Bad Boy label. There was a campaign with ‘Free The Lox’ T-Shirts which the artists themselves rocked in protest against Puffy forcing them to stay on the label due to contract issues. Eventually Puffy allowed them to leave their contract. (Bad Boy Forever)
