“We’re actually leaving on tour with Puff. I think [it starts] the end of February for two months. It’s going to be dope,” The Lox’s Sheek Louch tells AllHipHop.com. “[Puff Daddy is] putting it together. I think he’s making the announcement soon – the ‘No Way Out Tour.'”

Sheek did not reveal which specific acts will be part of the trek. However, more information about the tour is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Puff Daddy is planning to drop a sequel to his 1997 debut album No Way Out next year. The Harlem mogul released his MMM mixtape in November. The project included appearances by The Family members Lil Kim, Jadakiss, and Styles P.

While his Lox comrades were featured on MMM, Sheek was not able to contribute to the free digital download. The “What’s On Your Mind” rapper explained why his voice was left off Puffy’s lead-up project to No Way Out 2.

“We talked about that. Puff said, ‘I called you first.’ Every time he called, he said, ‘Louch, I need you to come out here and get on this album.’ I said, ‘Damn Puff, I leave for Canada for two months tomorrow morning,'” Sheek states. “He called me again. I said, ‘Damn, I’ll be in Australia, then New Zealand, then Hong Kong.’ I’ve been touring like crazy. But he damn sure called me several times. Salute to Puff. I wish I could have been part of that joint.”

Sheek Louch’s own album Silverback Gorilla 2 is set for release on Friday, December 4. Read AllHipHop’s full interview with Sheek here.
