The Lox Return with The Trinity EP
The legendary hip hop group The Lox surprised their fans with a new EP titled The Trinity, released on December 18, 2013. The EP is their first official project in over 13 years, since their last album We Are the Streets in 2000. The Trinity consists of four tracks, featuring guest appearances from Tyler Woods and Dyce Payne, and production from Eric G., Vinny Idol, Buda Da Future, Grandz Muzik and Dayzel.
The Lox, composed of Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch, are known for their gritty and lyrical style of rap, as well as their affiliation with D-Block Records and Ruff Ryders Entertainment. They have collaborated with some of the biggest names in hip hop, such as The Notorious B.I.G., DMX, Nas, Jay-Z and more. The group has also been involved in some of the most notorious beefs in rap history, such as the one with Bad Boy Records and 50 Cent.
The Trinity EP showcases the group's versatility and chemistry, as they deliver hard-hitting bars over diverse beats. The EP opens with \"Faded\", a smooth and soulful track featuring Tyler Woods on the hook. The Lox rap about their longevity and success in the game, as well as their loyalty to each other. Jadakiss spits: \"We been here for a while now / Still got it locked like Rikers Isle now / Still D-Block till we die now / Still got each other's back when we lie down\".
The second track, \"Talk About It\", is a more aggressive and energetic song, where the group addresses some of the issues plaguing the rap industry and society in general. They criticize the fake and fraudulent rappers, the lack of originality and creativity, the violence and corruption, and the media manipulation. Styles P raps: \"They don't talk about skills no more / They don't talk about bars no more / They don't talk about the struggle or the scars no more / They don't talk about the streets or behind bars no more\".
The third track, \"Love Me or Leave Me Alone\", is a more introspective and emotional song, where the group reflects on their personal relationships and struggles. They rap about the ups and downs of love, the betrayal and loyalty, the pain and joy, and the sacrifices they made for their careers. Sheek Louch raps: \"I know I did you wrong baby / But I'm a changed man / I know you heard that before / But I'm saying it again / I know you got your guard up / But I'm breaking it down / Cause I don't wanna lose you girl / You're the best thing I found\".
The EP closes with \"Three Kings\", a triumphant and celebratory track featuring Dyce Payne on the chorus. The Lox rap about their status and legacy in the rap game, as well as their gratitude and humility. They boast about their skills and achievements, but also acknowledge their fans and peers who supported them throughout their journey. Jadakiss raps: \"We came from nothing to something / We made it happen / We never fronted or bluffing / We kept it rapping / We never sold out or switched up / We kept it classic / We are the kings of this shit / Respect is automatic\".
The Trinity EP is a welcome return for The Lox, who prove that they still have what it takes to make quality hip hop music in any era. The EP serves as a warm-up for their upcoming album We Are the Streets 2, which is expected to drop soon. The Trinity EP is available for streaming and download on various platforms.
