The Lox‘s Sheek Louch has confirmed his rap group will once again join forces with Diddy and assist with their forthcoming album.
Despite contractual issues in the past, Sheek described how the group’s age and experience will now play a role in their new business venture with Puff.
“We’re grown now,” Sheek said in an interview. “No man can do anything to me if I don’t let it happen. Whatever happens, I have to put blame on myself first before I blame anyone else. And not saying that he’s going to do that or anything like that. We’re all in a better space now and I want to learn to make that big money and do it real big. So he’ll be dealing with us with this album. He wants to put the project out and add his part on to things but we’re going to do what we do and deliver that fire. Sh*t, we all come too far not to be able to do what we do.” (Hip Hop DX)
Jadakiss recently spoke on re-joining Diddy and complimented his former boss’ business habits.
“Around Christmas time,” Kiss told Miss Info referring to the album’s release date. “We six, seven songs in. We got a meeting actually with Puffy in a couple of weeks I think. We got a sit-down dinner. I just got that news delivered to me…At the end of the day, if it’s beneficial for both parties on a financial end and on just good vibes, it could always work. The big wigs do it, the billionaires do it everyday…It started off with him just throwing it out there as a joke but I guess when he thought about it, how huge it could be with us linking back with him after ten years, all the marketing he could put around it, Ciroc ads, he’s one of the smartest business gangsters that ever touched this industry. And he knows everything that we went through, so the checks are gonna have to be nice.” (Miss Info)
Kiss previously sparked talks about a Lox and Puff reunion.
“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)
Aside from L-o-x, the group’s D-Block compilation landed on the charts this week.
D-Block’s No Security debuted on the charts this week and secured No. 40. The group’s new album sold 11,900 records after seven days in stores. (SOHH Sales Wrap)
