For years known primarily because of his membership in the L.O.X., Styles broke away from his groupmates in 2002 with his debut solo album and its hit single, "Good Times." Up until the album's release, Styles may have not been well-known on his own yet was certainly no stranger to success. He united with childhood friends Jadakiss and Sheek to form the L.O.X. and signed with Bad Boy in the late '90s. The trio appeared on numerous Bad Boy-affiliated songs as guests and even released an album of its own, Money, Power & Respect (1998), which yielded a hit single of the same name. The L.O.X. left Bad Boy soon after to join the Ruff Ryder camp, where the trio's style of hardcore rap fit better alongside other rugged rappers such as DMX and Eve. There, the L.O.X. released its second album, We Are the Streets (2000), followed by solo albums for each of the members. Styles' solo debut, A Gangsta and a Gentleman, came in summer 2002, led by the Swizz Beatz-produced hit single "Good Times." Jason Birchmeier
