J-Hood Says D-Block Won’t Let Him Out of His Contract

Former D-Block crew member J-Hood, who recently asked to be released from his contract with the Yonkers, NY based group, is now saying that the LOX have failed to honor his request. In a statement released to, Hood claims that D-Block management, which includes LOX members Sheek Louch, Jadakiss and Styles P, have refused to finalize the termination of their agreement. “As all the majority of the fans out there know, I asked to be released from D-Block approximately three months ago and ‘til this day I’ve yet to be released from the label. The CEO’s in charge of the corporation are refusing to sign the papers necessary for me to go free as an artist, and on top of that, they [have] even [threatened] to ask for money for the release.” Rumors of Hood’s dissatisfaction with the label had circulated around for some time before he effectively confirmed them on a Youtube video that surfaced in late September. In the clip, Hood was seen dragging his D-Block medallion on the ground, and later appearing onstage with the clique’s onetime nemesis, 50 Cent. In a subsequent interview with, Sheek Louch said that D-Block would “gladly” release the young MC from his contract, citing the group’s own legal issues with Sean “Diddy” Combs and Bad Boy Records. Now, Hood is likening his situation to that of his mentors. “We all know they went threw a similar situation earlier in their careers,” Hood said in his statement. “Lets hope that’s not what they have become, the biggest hypocrites.”
