"It's about to go down," wrote Jada earlier this year, next to a photo of himself Hov and group members Styles P and Sheek Louch. It was obvious that some kind of partnership was forming between the Lox and Roc Nation, but no details were given until now.
To celebrate Filthy America ... It's Beautiful -- their third album and first since 2000's We Are The Streets -- the rap vets will be hosting a party on Dec. 15, in New York City's Highline Ballroom. It's open to the public and fans quickly expressed their joy about all that's happening on social media.
"Wow, almost shocked," one person wrote. "A new Lox album after 16 years of waiting and on Roc Nation too." "The Lox dropping an album this month too, that's the real gem of December," someone else tweeted.
