Though recent focus has been on Jadakiss and his upcoming Def Jam debut, Styles P tells SOHH the D-Block movement is still alive and well.
In November of 2007 it was announced that Jadakiss, one member of the Yonkers, New York based trio The Lox had signed a solo deal with Roc-A-Fella/Ruff Ryders. His highly anticipated Kiss My Ass album is scheduled to drop at the end of this year.
According to Styles, The Lox are planning to follow up Kiss’ release with a D-Block compilation album in mid January or early February and then drop a new Lox LP later in 2009.
“We got a lot of music done,” he told SOHH. “We just waiting to put these two projects out and then sit down and put all the touches on it.”
Styles will also make an appearance on Jada’s upcoming album but he declined to disclose many details about the track. “It’s sick,” he said. “That’s all I can tell you. It’s crazy though…real lyrical.”
Styles P and Sheek Louch both inked solo deals with the independent label Koch Records while Jadakiss opted to sign with a major. Despite this, Styles says there’s nothing but lover between the group members.
“Yeah, we definitely all got our own agendas but as you heard, you heard the D-Block compilation,” Styles said. “It’s all three of us on the single, ‘It’s like That.'”
“Everybody always cool,” he continued. “I mean you know it’s bigger than music with us. It would take more than something to happen to music to be different.”
