The L.O.X. CL Recommends

When: Fri., May 2 2014
Price: $35-$70
THE LOX

Hard to believe the Lox are celebrating 15 years since their debut album. I was only a sixth-grader, in my album-buying infancy, when my mom somehow missed the parental advisory label on a CD that just so happened to have their single, “Money, Power, Respect” on it. You should’ve seen my face light up hearing curse words in my headphones with Sheek Louch, Styles P and Jadakiss essentially walking me through “the game” in a way my older brother or cousins had never done. Lil’ Kim reinforcing the lessons on the hook was only the cherry on top. I learned some timeless virtues playing that CD barely above a whisper: “First you get the money. Then you get the motherfuckin’ power. After you get the fuckin’ power, motherfuckas will respect you.” (Mike McCray)
