EDITORS’ NOTES

It's hard to believe, but the Yonkers crew The Lox have been together for nearly 20 years now—still managing to put out good music and stay relevant in an ever-changing hip-hop landscape. From their early days on Bad Boy (with mega-hits like "We'll Always Love Big Poppa" and "It's All About the Benjamins") to their follow-up smash We Are the Streets on Ruff Ryders and the 2009 D-Block compilation No Security, they have maintained their street-savvy image and ardent fan base. While we patiently await the release of We Are the Streets 2, they hit us with this four-song EP to hold us over. Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, and Style P still sound great together, even though they've been more concerned with solo projects in recent years. On the opener, "Faded," their message is clear: "Lemme get faded/Me and Benjamin Franklin it's like we related/Me and Mary Jane, we get so sedated/Long as you respect it you can love it or hate it." Older heads will surely appreciate their take on Brand Nubian's classic "Love Me or Leave Me Alone."

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.
