After being praised for their years-long discography at Verzuz, The LOX is amidst another celebratory moment. The New York group which consists of Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch are the newest recipients of the keys to Yonkers — an honor bestowed for their work in making the city a better place.
“@cityofyonkers @mayormikespano we are honored, humbled and appreciative to have the keys to the city,” Styles wrote on Instagram. “@sheeklouch @jadakiss @juicesforlife @farmacyforlife and myself will keep in mind and always remember the people are the true keys to the city! We will do what’s necessary to make it a healthier, safer, vibrant city for those coming after us...and will push to make it happen in other cities as well.”
Styles’ caption accompanied a video in which he further expressed his gratitude for the honor. “We just want to say thank you,” he said. “Love is love. To the people of Yonkers, the mayor of Yonkers, we will be receiving the key to the city. Super dope, love is love.”
The Ghosting emcee then announced the group’s continued efforts to improve the city.
“Even doper than that, we’re opening up a revised third park, a third workout station in Yonkers for people, kids, grownups, women and children to have family activities and keep focusing on your health,” he said.
“Make our city a better place to live, it’s an easier way for the kids. You don’t have to get a felony, get in trouble, just work out and be healthy, and try to go the right way. That’s what we’re here for. Yonkers strong!”
