DJ Premier gives some insight on how The Notorious B.I.G. first introduced him Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch and their first collaboration together for The Lox’s sophomore album. Here’s how “Recognize” came together. Also included is DJ Scratch carving up the intro in a way we haven’t seen before.
Jadakiss has been on a tear as of late. Freddie Gibbs recognized this and scooped up The Lox member for a lyrical romp titled “Black Illuminati.” Dope beats, dope rhymes, what more do y’all want?
Snoop Dogg may be Uncle Snoop these days but the rapper who terrorized the industry in the 1990s still exists. Over some wicked Nottz production, Snoop recruits Jadakiss, Benny The Butcher and Busta Rhymes to spit some “Murda Music.” From his new compilation album The Algorithm.
Funkmaster Flex is preparing to drop another album as the legendary DJ connects with Jadakiss and Murda Beatz for “Damn Shame” with a video attached.
Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch are back at it with another joint off of their Living Off Xperience album. “Gave It To Em” finds The Lox giving back to the community that they came up in.

The Ruff Ryders reunite as The Lox and DMX form like Voltron with “Bout Shit” from Styles P, Jadakiss and Sheek Louch’s next album Living Off Xperience. Check out the Scram Jones-produced cut and see if you get some sense of nostalgia.

Jadakiss and Pusha T drop the video for their collaboration from ‘Kiss’ Ignatius album. The duo take aim at wack emcees — Pusha has his scope set on one rapper in particular — in the visuals that see the tandem gear up for “Huntin’ Season.”
The potency of lyricism between Jadakiss and Pusha T is evident on their collaborative effort “Huntin’ Season.” Pusha takes aim at a rival and Kiss clobbers the production. From Jadakiss’ album Ignatius, which drops on February 28.
