Yonkers-bred rap trio The LOX notched a string of memorable hits during the ’90s Bad Boy era of hip-hop.

  • In high school, rappers Sheek Louch, Styles P, and Jadakiss formed a group called The Bomb Squad and began performing at local shows and producing homemade demos.
  • They were discovered by fellow Yonkers native Mary J. Blige. She introduced them to Puff Daddy (now Diddy), who signed them to Bad Boy Records and changed their name to The LOX.
  • In 1997, The LOX had their breakout moment on Puff Daddy’s No. 2 smash “All About the Benjamins.” They also appeared alongside Mase on Mariah Carey’s “Honey (Bad Boy Remix).”
  • The LOX kept the momentum going with their platinum-selling 1998 debut album, Money, Power & Respect, which features their Notorious B.I.G. tribute “We’ll Always Love Big Poppa.”
  • The group then signed to Ruff Ryders Entertainment and released their gold-certified We Are the Streets in 2000 before taking an extended hiatus.
  • In 2016, they returned with their third album, Filthy America…It’s Beautiful, which cracked the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
