Biography

Yonkers, New York NY, United States (1994 – present)

David Styles (born November 28, 1974), better known as Styles P, is an American rapper. He was born to a Jamaican father and a South African mother. He is a member of Hip Hop group D-Block, which includes Jadakiss and Sheek Louch. He is known primarily for the hardcore lyrics and powerful messages in his music.

Born in Corona, Queens, and raised on Groshon Ave in Yonkers, NY, Styles began rapping with Jadakiss and Sheek in 1994, as they all grew up in the same Yonkers, New York neighborhood. They eventually signed to Bad Boy Records, formed the rap group called “THE LOX” which stands for “Living Off Xperience”, and recorded songs with Notorious B.I.G., Sean Combs and Darren Blackburn. In 1998, The Lox released Money, Power & Respect w/ the hit song “Money, Power, Respect” feat. fellow Bad Boy, “Lil Kim” and Ruff Ryder Earl “DMX” Simmons. Soon thereafter, Styles P led the Lox on the now infamous quest to leave Bad Boy Records. When they were finally released, the Lox signed to Interscope. Shortly thereafter, a new Lox album and Jadakiss’ solo album Kiss Tha Game Goodbye were released.

Styles released A Gangster and a Gentleman in 2002, as his debut solo album. The album contained the song “The Life”, featuring Pharoahe Monch which was originally recorded for Rawkus Records’ Soundbombing 3 compilation album. The follow up hit was the song dedicated to marijuana use, “Good Times (I Get High)”, one of the most played songs of 2002.
