    The Lox and Bad Boy mogul Sean”Diddy” Combs have settled a music publishing dispute after a furious on-air clash that was broadcast on Hot 97 last month.

    Group members Styles P and Sheek re-appeared on Angie Martinez’s Hot 97 radio show today in a state of euphoria.

    “What he did was sweet. He came back [with his offer] and I almost jumped out my seat,” Styles P said to Angie Martinez. “Basically, he gave us all our publishing back. He didn’t have to do what he did. In the business world, what he did, was like a four-leaf clover. The results was great.”

    Styles said both parties assembled today with their lawyers and made a mutually satisfactory decision in a 45-minute meeting.

    “What he did for us, he didn’t have to do. What he did for us was splendid. He made it so much easier. He made our business beautiful,” Styles continued.

    After the initial clash on November 16 and Diddy's response, Styles said he talked to his former CEO on the phone and had a frank conversation.

    “Before the [legal] meeting I spoke to him over the phone. He said, ‘I want to meet up, look y’all in the eye and speak as men. The bottom line is we can fix it.’” Furthermore, Styles said that their whole quarrel was a “miscommunication.”

    “What he was saying was true, but what we were saying was true,” the Yonkers native asserted. “Its an argument where you could say both sides were right. It was grown man, eye to eye.”

    Prior to the resolution, Styles said The Lox’s living conditions were “uncomfortable” and an “irritating situation to be in.” Additionally, he apologized profusely for their initial public dispute and remarks that could have been perceived as threats.

    Styles implored that other rappers should be mindful of their business dealings and to understand their worth as entertainers.

    “I think the problem with the whole game is artists don’t stand for themselves,” he said.

    Sean “Diddy” Combs wasn’t available for comment at press time.

    I wouldn't call it bad business, because the Lox are dead weight sales wise anyway, so if they don't sell shit, the nigga don't get paid. It's a waste of his time and not even worth it

    Dumbasses.

    Diddy obviously did this with 'strings attached'

    There's always a catch with Diddy.

    ^the only strings i see attached are that this makes Diddy look like the good guy. It preserves his image and people continue to like him. That's good business

    true, but i don't think anyone would mind getting paid for doing nothing

    400k is a lot of money.

    How are they acting like this is going to make them rich? They're just happy to get what they deserve.

    They deserve it because they're putting in all the work and Puff was getting a percentage off of albums he had nothing to do with.

    Oh, just for the record.

    If being passionately upset over something important is crying then oh well. If they didn't do what they did then it would have never sparked conversation between them and Puff. Now, they got their shit back, which is what they deserved in the first place, and obviously Puffy is okay with that because he's the one that handed the shit over. It doesn't hurt Puffy because his worth will only continue to grow regardless of anything, and it helps The Lox out extremely because this is what they need to press forward and continue to record music. Looks like 2 positives to me. So, why do people like you always have to say something negative or judgemental in cases like this. Shit's getting old. Everybody always has some dumb shit to say, just to make it look like they're smarter than those involved. Step to Styles and say he's a crybaby. He'd push you to the ground and laugh in your face.
