After a well-publicized request to break from Bad Boy Records, The Lox hit the streets again with an aptly titled sophomore album WE ARE THE STREETS. Now part of the Ruff Ryder/Interscope family, The L.O.X. (Living Off eXperience) packs 14 new tracks into a complete package of street beats, ghetto flavor and mic skills. With slick production from top producers such as Swizz Beats ("Wild Out"), DJ Premier ("Recognize"), Timbaland ("Ryde or Die, Bitch") and P.K. ("Breathe Easy") WE ARE THE STREETS will keep your attention from first listen. Some of the other tracks worthy of attention are "U Told Me," notable for its contribution from Eve, "Can I Live" featuring Kasino, "Y'all Fucked Up Now," and "If You Know," which features the lyrical talents of Swizz Beats, Drag-On and once again, Eve. The L.O.X does not disappoint, and WE ARE THE STREETS is everything a great hip-hop album should be; catchy, hard-hitting, well produced, and very real.

Rolling Stone (2/17/00, p.54) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Where money, power and respect were once their prime concerns, [The Lox] are now obsessed with even baser issues. On STREETS, [they] aim to deal, kill, and steal....shows a diversity that the other Ruff Ryder albums lack..."

CMJ (2/14/00, p.24) - "...sheds all remains of their former gaudier image, opting to go straight-up rugged and raw as members of the Ruff Ryders camp....filled with rage-fueled rhymes and impassioned slices of ghetto storytelling....This is true power and respect right here, money."

Vibe (3/00, p.202) - "...far surpasses its predecessor - it's what the Lox's fans wanted the first time around....[They] abandon their jiggy crutch and proceed to sell more drugs than Fidel Castro, terminate more half-stepping thugs and MC's...and conquer women at a...Wilt Chamberlain...pace..."

The Source (4/00, pp.203-4) - 3.5 mics out of 5 - "...The LOX hold nothing back - and it's that realness that gives the album its backbone....the trio attempt to prove that they could: do it; do it without Puffy; and lastly, do it well without Puffy....they...give you enough hot [stuff] to ryde to."
