Today, legendary trio The LOX released their fourth studio LP Living Off Xperience, which sees additional assistance from T-Pain, Jeremih, Benny The Butcher, Westside Gunn, and more. This week, fans get to check out a new visual from the project for “Bout S***,” which sees the Yonkers legends reuniting with fellow Ruff Ryders alum DMX. As expected, the collaborators bring the listeners back to the classic, gritty New York bars we’ve come to know them for over production from Scram Jones:
“Stepping out the Benz with the shearling that Bane had, before you test me, you ought to think of your brain pan/
Donnie’s a gorilla, Al-Qaeda came with the killers, gun on the wait, while I wait for n***as.../”
The accompanying visual comes courtesy of Rock Davis and shows the four artists roaming around New York with their crew during the still-active quarantine. In true Ruff Ryders fashion, bikers can be seen pulling wheelies in the streets, while other locations throughout the neighborhood add to the clips hard-hitting atmosphere. Casanova even makes a cameo appearance for his NYC brethren.
“Bout S***” follows the previous singles “Loyalty & Love” and “Gave It To Em,” two tracks that were released in April and May of this year, respectively. Their previous album (and their first Roc Nation drop), Filthy America... It’s Beautiful, was released back in 2016 and saw 12 tracks with appearances from Gucci Mane, Mobb Deep, Fetty Wap, DJ Khaled, and more. Their previous two albums, the Bad Boy-helmed Money, Power & Respect and the subsequent Ruff Ryders release We Are The Streets, were released in 1998 and 2000, respectively.
