Hailing from South Jamaica, Queens, New York
Members Mr. Cheeks, Freaky Tah (R.I.P 1971–1999), DJ Spigg Nice, and Pretty Lou formed the now legendary crew The Lost Boyz. The crew had their fair share of success, debuting in 1996 with their critically and commercially acclaimed album Legal Drug Money.
The album spawned 5 major hits including the most notably Renee. The crew released 3 other albums with the sophomore being the last to receive acclaim.
On March 29th, 1999 group member Freaky Tah was shot and killed (R.I.P), and resulted in the group disbanding.
Aside from this tragedy The Lost Boyz provided music that will go down forever in hip-hop and here on now the infamous #ClassicFridays, we present to you some hits from one of the best years and eras in hip-hop
