There are no songs here that wouldn't make a spectacular soundtrack to breaking a bottle over someone's head
2000 | Label: Ruff Ryders Records

Bare knucklehead aggression. This is what the Yonkers trio of Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, and Styles P offer, in abundance, on We Are The Streets. "If a nigga step on your goddamn shoe, fuck that, wild out!" goes the chorus to "Wild Out." The chorus to the song called "Fuck You" goes, "If you hoped we wouldn't make it, fuck you/ If you got a heart full of hatred, fuck you." There are many, many scenarios,… read more »

Rap doesn't always have to have a message...

Zerbo

...sometimes it's just fun to listen to some trash talkers talking trash. If that's what your in the mood for look no further. Let's face it, this album only covers 3 topics 1) The Lox are finally free from Bad Boy and on Ruff Ryders where they always belonged. 2) Each one is the best rapper alive except for the other two 3) They are all still toting guns, selling drugs and driving nicer cars than you This is Jadakiss, Sheek and Styles at their absolute best over vintage Swizz Beats, errr, beats. These guys rap like someone locked them in a cage for 5 years with pens and pads, then let them out directly into the booth to vent their anger at being held captive, the excitement of their freedom, and sometimes both at the same time...and that's a VERY good thing.

They Say All Music Guide

The LOX’s highly publicized and drawn-out defection from Puffy’s Bad Boy Records to DMX’s Ruff Ryder camp was imperative. Not only because Puffy’s glossy sound openly clashed with the group’s thug mentality, but the change of scenery also furnished Jadakiss, Sheek, and Styles with an opportunity to assert their own identity. While the LOX as a unit do not offer much in terms of topical dexterity, Jadakiss is one the industry’s most underappreciated lyricists, which he clearly reiterates on his solo cut “Blood Pressure.” Ruff Ryders in-house producer Swizz Beatz handles most of the production duties, and although his syncopated production can become repetitious, DJ Premier (“Recognize”) and Timbaland (“Ryde or Die Bitch,” featuring Eve and Drag-On) provide some much-needed diversity with their signature sounds. The rowdy lead single, “Wild Out,” is an obvious reworking of Jay-Z’s “Jigga My Nigga,” but it was a hit on rap radio. – Matt Conaway
