Top 10 Rapper vs. Label Beefs – Tell ‘Em Why You Mad, Son

THE LOX VS. BAD BOY: 2000-2008

After dropping their 1998 RIAA-certified platinum debut Money, Power & Respect on Bad Boy Records, The LOX turned around a year later and demanded to be let go from the house that Puff built. The Free the LOX campaign (famously marked by the “Let the LOX go” T-shirts that flooded NYC streets) worked and the Yonkers trio ended up signing to Ruff Ryders/Interscope, where they dropped their sophomore album We Are the Streets in 2000.

Still, the beef with Bad Boy didn’t stop there. Even though the group left the label, Puff still held on to percentages of the LOX’s publishing. In 2008, Jada and Styles P. had it out with Diddy during a Hot 97 radio interview. Even though, Puff and the LOX have since made peace, this remains one of the best rapper/label beefs in hip-hop history.
