20 Classic LOX Mixtape Cuts

I still remember the first time I heard “You’ll See”, the Notorious B.I.G. assisted track that introduced the world to Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch. I was in my boy’s hooptie and he had it early. I don’t remember what mixtape he was playing it from, I think it was one of his own custom joints with a couple of early Warlocks songs that hadn’t yet been widely disseminated. I had known of the The Bomb Squad, but I had probably only heard a couple of unremarkable tracks here and there, and I didn’t immediately make the connection that these were the same guys. But now here they were, holding their own alongside the MC that, at the time, was widely accepted as the greatest rapper alive.

The fact that these kids were from Y-O and were on a cut with Big, was fucking my head up. Growing up there, I knew my hometown had long been a hotbed of talent, but this was the first time I was seeing anybody other than Mary J. Blige get widespread recognition outside of our little isolated city. And man were they recognized. That song set off an epic mixtape run that would solidify the trio as one of the most respected groups to ever emerge from the East Coast. In anticipation of the new Styles P album Phantom And The Ghost, out April 29th through the newly formed New Music Cartel Music Group, we pulled together some of the essential tracks from SP, Kiss and Sheek’s late 90′s/early 2000′s mixtape campaign. Ip did his thing on this one, so enjoy:
