(AllHipHop Rumors) J Hood recently spoke out about his affiliation with The Lox and D-Block. The rapper hasn’t made waves in the Hip-Hop world in awhile after seeing sparks of success in the early 2000s.
The interview footage circulating is courtesy of Team CEO as they posted it to their YouTube channel. Audio can be heard as Hood speaks over the phone about the situation and his business dealings.
“I wasn’t just an artist on D-Block. I actually helped start this brand. I was a co-founder of this company.,” said J-Hood. He continued, “Lox is a 3-man group. You didn’t hear of D-Block until I stepped on the scene.”
J Hood would then continue to elaborate further on the situation as the interview continued. He further explained his involvement and contract dealings with The Lox.
“We sat down collectively and came up with the idea to start a movement and the plan was to have me at the head of the movement. I was going to be the first artist then we came up with the name.,” says J Hood.
He continued, “At the time they didn’t want to let me out my contract. So I felt like if y’all not doing what y’all supposed to be doing as far as holding up your obligations or whatever the case be just let me do what I do. Because I had other people that were interested in me at the time. So I felt like you guys are just trying to hold me until no one is interested no more. That obviously made me upset. Because now you’re taking money out my pockets that I could be using to feed my family.”
The Lox and J Hood had a very public beef in the late 2000s with both parties going back and forth. J Hood would later publicly apologize for the beef and Jadakiss would offer more of an explanation years later.
