The Lox just dropped EP ” #4NoReason” for the culture in October with Tidal. The 4 tracked EP has Styles P, Sheek Louch, and Jadakiss giving bars throughout the fifteen minute session. As they have transitioned to there present endeavors with Tidal, The Lox is back with some authentic sounds and lyrics. This is a preview to the legendary trio in our hip-hop culture.

Styles P, Sheek Louch, Jadakiss : D BLOCK 2017

1. Break It Down
2. Gangsta Party
3. Let’s Work
4. Re-Up

  1. “Break It Down” has a dope beat that has the The Lox’s sound which should be apprecaited by their fans.Styles P came through as the formulator. Sheek Louch delivered but not at his best potential.  Jadakiss verse has the best content overall.
  2. “Gangsta Party” featuring Derez Deshon is the highlight of this project. Sheek came through but needed to switch his style so it can bring more to our current state of hip-hop. Styles P could have finessed his content a bit more. As for Jada, he become the anchor of the track.
  3. “Let’s Work” has a cool beat and the chorus was immediate for the project. The track was straightforward but a twist was expected from the group. Jadakiss again came through giving flow and bars. As for Sheek and Styles they came together but the producer could have been on a better level.
  4. “Re-Up” featuring L-Biz is the last song on the EP. Jadakiss comes first and gives his known flow to the track. Next, Sheek comes and gives game. He also gives a storyline that tells you how to move in the game. He hit points on this track. Styles P comes last and gives his story as well. He speaks on his transition in his life. From how his Re-Up transitioned from dirty to clean. This track is also a good listen.

 

Overall, as a fan of real rap music, The Lox are pioneers of this culture. They only gave us four tracks, with that said, we were expecting something highly graded. If you give four tracks, you should consider at least a bonus. With the long wait of another Lox project, our expectations were a bit high. Not to say, they came through with some dope music. What are your thoughts? Preview a track below and tell us what you think.
