the lox

There’s a new LOX track?! Yes, it is true. Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch gather for a black-and-white clip for the single, “New York City” directed by Mills Miller Media. Representing Yonkers to the fullest, the trio put it down for their city as well as their fans. Where songs like “Empire State Of Mind” go for the checkered cab and stadium take on the Big Apple, The Lox flip the script, smack the pizza out of your hand and spit on the third rail. Take in The Lox latest video, and pay your respects to one of the great rap groups in hip hop.

[Mixtape] XV- “March Madness Vol.2- Sweet Sixteen”


In honor of the NCAA March Madness tournament, Rapper XV has come to play with his sweetest of 16’s for his latest mixtape, March Madness Vol. 2- Sweet Sixteen. The Wichita Kansas emcee has been in the game/under the radar for years now- and still has a following of loyal fans who just want to see him succeed. Vizzy first gained attention after the release of his twelfth mixtape Everybody’s Nobody, for which he received two awards from DJBooth.net.

March Madness Vol. 2 is filled with imaginative, topical rhymes and punch lines which fans of XV have come to expect from him. The rhymes“Fans getting annoyed/The world doesn’t know the boy/From the home of the Superman- not the Soulja Boy” from track 10, “Another Illusion” tell the story XV’s career- a hip hop Clark Kent waiting for the perfect moment to break out to industry success.

XV revisits some classic hip hop instrumentals for this project such as Eminem’s “The Way I Am,” Drake’s “Pound Cake” and 2pac’s “All About You.” I’ve been a fan of XV for a while now-it’s nice to see the man in still working! Dubbed Sweet Sixteens, there’s no mystery of what to expect with this mixtape. Vizzy is back!

If you’ve ever been to a club when he’s spinning, you know what to expect already.

“Doggy Style”, is a west-coast influenced track, bringing some warm vibes as it snows yet again today. This is one collaboration I didn’t expect to see, so it was a surprise when it came together and what came out of it, a summer banger. Jimmy B, AJ Cooper and Richie Blackz all go in on their verses. I’m hoping they jump on stage together and do this track on Saturday live. Come out to The APK this weekend if you want to see the same thing. It won’t be nothing less than epic.
