NEW YORK — A decade ago, it was "Let the LOX go!" In 2009, it very well could be "Bring the LOX back!"
[artist id="1163822"]Jadakiss[/artist] said [artist id="1244169"]Diddy[/artist] is trying to reacquire one of his most treasured acts: the LOX. "Diddy made us a light offer, all you label heads," Jadakiss told MTV News. "He made us a nice light one."
Diddy and all three LOX members appeared on "106 & Park" on Tuesday, and footage of them backstage hit the Net via Diddy's Twitter page.
"Our relationship is lovely," 'Kiss said of his ties with Puff. Back in the day, Jada, Sheek Louch and Styles P decided to leave Bad Boy due to creative differences, and later, the trio publicly threatened Diddy because they said the label CEO owed them money. That situation was resolved years ago.
"Diddy is our big homie, but the people know the business wasn't as tight as it was supposed to be in the beginning," Jada said. "This [deal], it would have to be [right]. ... Listen, he made the offer. He said, 'You know what we been through. I got extra bread for y'all.' That came out of his mouth."
One of Diddy's biggest competitors for the LOX might be a mutual friend: [artist id="1269"]Jay-Z[/artist]. Jada is signed to Roc-A-Fella/ Def Jam for a solo deal, and Hov has been trying to bring the entire group into the fold for years. 'Kiss said he and his Yonkers brothers are open to hearing all offers.
"If somebody makes an offer first, then the bidding war goes down," Jada said. "I'm sure some of the big guys will make some offers. If not, Diddy, holla at me."
Jada is promoting his new LP, The Last Kiss, and a tour is being worked out for a co-headlining outing with [artist id="400206"]Cam'ron[/artist].
"Me and Killa supposed to go out, probably do some House of Blues-type of venues," he said. "Then I'm gonna try and sneak on that Weezy and Hov joint going out after that."
A tour with [artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist], Jay-Z and Jada? Hmm ... sounds like something huge for the fans. "Yeah," 'Kiss agreed.
Reps for Jay-Z and Lil Wayne said they haven't heard about a Jay and Wayne tour.
