In a related but separate line of questions, The Lox responded to curiosity about their feelings about the success of Hip Hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. “I represent Macklemore to the fullest,” Jadakiss said. “You know why I love Macklemore? Isn’t he independent still? That’s incredible. He’s caking out of this world and that’s what every independent artist seeks to do. He explored new heights. His music might not be your cup of tea but it’s still on the shelf, it’s still in the cabinet, it’s still on the fridge, you can’t deny it wherever you go so you might as well show him love and respect what he’s doing.”
“I love independence,” Styles P interjected. “I’m all independent. I think God bless them both. Like he said, it’s a cup of tea, everybody got their cup of tea when it comes to Hip Hop."
“Get your money, they supposed to be in that category,” Sheek Louch said.
“No disrespect but he’s a white guy from Seattle,” Jadakiss said, "so maybe some people can’t relate to that."
