This post is about the rap group called The L.O.X. This stands for Living Off Xperience. The LOX is an American rap group with three members. The members are Jadakiss, Sheek Louch and Styles P. They were signed to P.Diddy's Badboy records before signing to Ruff Ryders records.

They started their career in their hometown Yonkers. They started a rap group called Bomb Squad. The local scene was mainly brought to attention by names like Raw Rome, Lord Devon and DMX. The group changed their name into Warlocks. They kept building a loyal fan base and one of their devoted fans was Mary J. Blige. Mary saw what the group's potential was and passed the demo tape to P. Diddy. Later on they signed the deal with Badboy records. In 1996 LOX gained lots of attention by appearing on the hit song 'Last Days'. They made a tribute song to Biggie Smalls called 'We 'll always love big poppa'. The album 'Money, power and respect' branded the rap group as an important voice in rap music. LOX wrote the hit 'All about the Benjamins'. They also appeared on the track called '24 hours to live'.

In 1999 they wanted to sign to the new formed rap label called Ruff Ryders/Interscope. They thought the new label might be more suitable to their hardcore mentality. Sheek Louch says that they wanted to sign to a label that fits their hardcore image. In 2000 LOX released the album called 'We are the streets'. In 2010 the album called 'New LOX order' will come out.
