    After being absent last week at New York's Hot 97 studios while partners in rhyme Jadakiss and Styles P squared off with Diddy over the airwaves, Sheek Louch spoke exclusively to SOHH.com about the situation with his former Bad Boy boss, how 50 Cent is putting up roadblocks at Interscope and why he's seeing more money "after taxes" than most artists.
    "What the public sees is that one day on the radio," Sheek explained. "We'll see Puff but he'll tell you straight up 'deal with my lawyer.' This has been going on for a while. We did one album with Diddy, he still holding on to our publishing and we feel that [Diddy] should let it go by now. It's been ten years!"
    Refuting Diddy's later claim that he only owns 20 percent as opposed to the 50 percent that The Lox claim, Sheek broke down the situation as being more of a matter of principle.
    "No that's totally wrong. When we brought up paper work to him when he was up at the station the other night, he didn't care to address none of that. It would have been greater if we were both there," he tells SOHH.com. He definitely has way more publishing than that and at the end of the day, even if he has 3 percent, we feel like, 'Yo, Diddy it's over; ten years have passed dog.' There's no reason to hold on to none of it. They paid $3 million to get us off, we sold platinum for you, damn, you good!"
    Sheek also addressed The Lox refusing to put out another album under the Jimmy Iovine-headed Interscope Records. And while the move may leave fans without an official Lox project for a while, the Yonkers, NY MC explained that it was strictly a business move and that the trio would continue to put out material elsewhere.
    "The whole thing is, we were not trying to get off Interscope, we were gonna be under the same umbrella and go with Jay[-Z], which Jimmy Iovine was cool with," Sheek explained to SOHH.com."But a lot of things were put in the way. Not to put everything on him, but ya boy 50 over there trying to stop Styles' project, and 'don't play this record,' etc. He couldn't get at us lyrically so he had to go other routes and it's not a fair fight over here. So we said we're gonna focus on everything we got coming from D-Block and [wait] until they get it together and are ready to talk real sh*t."
    Sheek is also looking to continue moving his career forward, which includes promoting his newly released, Koch distributed album After Taxes, the follow-up project to 2003's Walk With Me. And for those who think this is an opportunity to air out all of his lyrical beefs on 16 tracks, he has another thing coming.
    "It ain't a lot of money in beefing. I got the #1 independent record in the country right now. I sold 40,000 records in 7 days. That's $8 off of every record. That's the reason I went indie. I'm not trying to see 33 cents off every record."
    With top notch production and a guest list that includes hip hop heavyweights like Beanie Sigel, Ghostface Killah, and T.I. as well as his D-Block brethren, Sheek is planning on taking his career to the next plateau.

    I haven't listened to Sheek's new album yet but i'm going to. How does he figure it's been 10 years since The Lox left Bad Boy? Their first album came out in 98 so it's only been 7 years. He can't count LOL. I'm glad he's doing well independently with his new album. I'm happy to see any rapper on a independent label because the major labels fuck you over.

    He never said it's been 10 years since they left Bad Boy, he said it's been 10 years since he took their publishing and also 10 years since they did the Benjamines record...

    If Sheek can't count, you can't read.

    Fool you can't count and neither can Sheek. All About The Benjamins came out in 97 so that's 8 years, not 10.

    I thought Sheek was in the studio? He was just quiet in the background.

    Damn, if he got 8 dollars off the album he made 320,000 dollars just for the album sales.

    Not counting going on 106 and Park and concerts and shit.

    you still can't read...

    Show me where it says Sheek said it's been 10 years since they left Bad Boy...please show me.

    Like i said, Sheek was saying it's been 10 years since Puffy took their publishing...reading is fundamental.
