The Lox – Bad Boy to Ruff Ryders

After fellow Yonkers, New York, alum Mary J. Blige passed their demo to Sean Combs (when he was know as Puffy), the hip hop mogul signed the trio to his Bad Boy label. But when the hardcore crew felt Diddy was pressuring them to be too commercial, they applied enough pressure to get out of their contract and sign with the label Ruff Ryders, which had been managing their careers from the beginning.
