Out in Yonkers during the mid-1990s, a group of Hip-Hop hopefuls came together to form a group that the world would come to know as The LOX. Nearly thirty years later, Sheek Louch, Styles P and Jadakiss are still making their presence felt in the Empire State and around the world. This week, the iconic rap trio was honored with a mural in the South Bronx.
“We appreciate you,” a fan-friendly message from the group’s Instagram account reads.
From classic records like “Money, Power & Respect” to their unique style, The LOX has played a role in shifting the trajectory of Hip-Hop in its birthplace. After years of touring and putting out classic projects, the trio received a jolt of energy when they graced the stage at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden. Led by the impeccable performance of Jadakiss, the group soundly defeated Dipset during a live Verzuz battle. Since then, they’ve performed at Pass The Mic Live, Hot 97’s Summer Jam, SXSW and several other key events. At the end of the month, the trio will return to New York for a show at Irving Plaza.
