Former Ruff Ryders crew The LOX pulled a fast one on fans this week after releasing an unexpected EP in the form of The Trinity onto iTunes.

While details and information behind its surprise release remain scarce, the four-track project hit the digital retailer Wednesday (December 18).

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)

Last summer, Jada spoke on the media and fans failing to realize L-O-X have never had a falling out.

“We see each other every day,” Jada said referring to LOX. “We got this L-O-X tatted on us and this is for life. I hate when people say a reunion album ’cause we never had a fallout, we never had no social media arguments, you’ve never seen it in no magazines or none of that. We brothers for life. Only jail or death can separate us.” (Hypebeast)

In April, Styles revealed their main focus was on putting out new music and would handle possible record deal offers when the time is right.

“You’ll probably hear a LOX song any day now. We just did some joints for Flex’s mixtape. We’re kinda just working right now, we’re sticking to the original LOX format. People are calling us with offers, but we’re still in work mode and trying to get the work done, then we’ll figure all that out.” (FUSE)
