Styles P, a member of The LOX, grew up on the streets of Yonkers, NY, rapping alongside Jadakiss (Jason Phillips) and Sheek Louch. In their late teens the trio met Mary J. Blige who was so impressed with their tough street east coast lyrics, she gave them a big break by putting their demo in the hands of Sean “Diddy” Combs. Diddy immediately hired the trio to write for Bad Boy Records. With the label, The LOX quickly started collaborating on hits with Diddy, the Notorious BIG, Mary J Blige, and Mariah Carey which gave them instant notoriety and status within the hip-hop and mainstream charts.
Yonkers, NY native Sean D. Jacobs, better known as Sheek Louch, has been a significant presence in the rap game for decades. Sheek started rhyming at a young age under the influence of friend Jadakiss, and along with Styles P, the three went on to form The LOX. After being ‘discovered’ by the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige, the trio went on to sign with Sean Combs’s Bad Boy Records where they released their 1998 platinum record, Money, Power, & Respect. After contributing to hits like “It’s All About The Benjamins,” the group later parted ways with Bad Boy and went on to release 2000’s We Are The Streets through DMX’s Ruff Ryders Records. The trio also appeared on numerous hits including Mase's "24 Hrs. to Live" and Mariah Carey's "Honey." With his LOX partners, Sheek eventually began working on D-Block Records – a label founded by the three rappers with its own studio and its own agenda.
