Hip Hop trio The Lox featuring Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch are teaming for a new album titled Filty America..It’s Beautiful. The highly anticipated project will debut this Friday, December 16 and features the “Omen,” “Stupid Questions” as well as collaborations like “The Agreement feat. Fetty Wap” and “Savior with Dyce Payne.”
In preparation for the release, the group hosted the Gold Bungalow during Miami’s Art Basel. The event took place at the posh W Hotel on South Beach and was attended by industry tastemakers, media guests and friends. Critically acclaimed artist John Hashford’s limited edition art decorated the walls of the space with various snapshots of urban culture. Dutch Masters and Rolling Out were sponsors for the event.
“Dutch Masters has been a part of the hip hop culture for years. Even before hip hop, the brand has been a part of street culture,” explained Styles P. Jadakiss reminisced about being in the studio with Biggie and seeing that his mentor used the Dutch Masters brand. “After seeing him use it in the studio, it made all of us want to use it too.”
Jadakiss also commented about Filthy America…It’s Beautiful and applauded the relevance of the new project. “It’s perfect timing with everything going on in the world right now.” When asked about features Jadakiss insisted that although their album includes great collaborations like “Secure the Bag” with Gucci Mane and a few other people, it is his partnership with The Lox that is the most important.
