Lost Boyz

The Lost Boyz included Freaky Tah, Mr. Cheeks, Pretty Lou, and Spigg Nice. The rap quartet's first single — "Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless" — earned them a contract with Uptown Records, which released their second single, "Jeeps, Lex Coups, Bimaz & Benz," later in 1995. After the "Renee" single (recorded for the Don`t Be a Menace to South Central South Central While you`re Drinking Your Juice in the Hood soundtrack), the Lost Boyz released their debut album, Legal Drug Money. The LP hit the charts and was certified gold. Love, Peace & Nappiness followed in 1997. Freaky Tah was murdered on March 28, 1999;LB IV Life appeared that autumn.

The Lost Boyz' second album, Love Peace & Nappiness, finds the group adding touches of reggae and ragga to their hard-edged hip-hop. The deeper production — thick bass, echoing beats and keyboards — makes Love Peace & Nappiness more sonically intriguing than the average rap album, but the Lost Boyz occasionally struggle for material, leaving the record a fitfully enjoyable listen.
