here's something I can't figure out -- did The Lox ever rename themselves D-Block, or is that just their record label? I swore I remember in the late 00s looking them up and seeing wikipedia had renamed their article "D-Block", but now it's a separate article about the label only.

it is kinda funny how they've done little to distinguish D-Block as a distinct brand from The Lox -- for years the only apparently artist on D-Block outside of the 3 of them was Jae Hood, then he defected, and they've got a bunch of little random 3rd string D-Block artists like Bully and Team Arliss who do most of the rapping on the D-Block projects. they've has been threatening to sign with Def Jam or whoever for a new Lox album for years, my theory is that whenever they feel like doing a group project but don't have a major label ready to put it out they just call it D-Block.

I now have all of Styles P's solo albums, and think they're all really solid. love his lyrics, street level but he pulls out some really cool turns of phrase...the production's really nice too. think Super Gangster bogs down in the second half but starts out really solid.
now waiting for my new copy of the first damn Lox album, urgh.

Phantom Gangster Chronicles Vol. 1 is really short (29 minutes) but it's still quality Styles P.

digging on the newest one. I liked last year's Float, feel like he's doin more interesting stuff lyrically on this one. the beats are mostly nondescript and get out of the way.
like the track w/ Vado a lot
