Über Styles P
A founding member of Yonkers crew The LOX, (alongside Jadakiss and Sheek), Styles came into the game back in the late nineties, when the trio was signed to Bad Boy. After several years of working with Puff Daddy (they also ghostwrote many hits for the label), The LOX jumped ship and joined forces with the Ruff Ryders following the release of their 1998 debut Money, Power & Respect. We Are The Streets dropped in 2000, and Styles came hard with his first solo album A Gangster and a Gentleman in the summer of 2002. Keeping his rhymes squarely on the crime/drugs/cash tip, he scored a big hit with the catchy, weed-endorsing single "Good Times."
