Following the release of Diddy’s “It’s All About The Benjamins” in the late 90s, fans of Yonkers-based trio The LOX were left wondering why the song lacked a verse from The LOX’s Styles P. The mystery surrounding that particular question about the record was revealed last week when Sheek Louch made an appearance during Take It Personal: The Hip Hop Improv Show.

During the Cipha Sounds-hosted improv show, Sheek shared some insight into the creation of “It’s All About The Benjamins” and revealed that Missy Elliott was the architect behind the song. According to Sheek, Missy wasn’t impressed with Styles P’s verse and felt it shouldn’t be included on the song.

“I remember we first got there with Puff. Me, Kiss, and Styles walked in the room and there was this girl in there and shyt,” said Sheek. “And they was listening to that beat. At first I didn’t like it…She was talking to me like she knew me. ‘Yo, let me hear you rap to that.’ ‘First of all, who are you?’ She’s dancing and shyt. She’s making beatboxing noises and shyt while she like ‘Yo, let me hear you spit something to this.’ So, I said ‘alright’…So, I did my first verse—‘strictly tryna cop those’—it wasn’t even for that. I did it. Styles did something; she was like ‘meh.’ Jada did a verse to it. I swear to God, no diss to Styles. That’s my brother. Jada did his verse and shyt she was like ‘Yo.’ He [Styles P] ain’t on the record and shyt. :camby: And then she was like ‘You gon’ go here, you gon’ go here, y’all two, you and Kiss, gonna write Puff’s verse.’ Then she just walked off beatboxing :dead: Later on that was Missy Elliott…But we didn’t know that was her. She put the whole ‘Benjamins’ together.”

Sheek said Styles was initially upset about not being included on the song and revealed that no one in the group had any idea how huge the record would later become.

“He was tight at first. We didn’t know that song was gonna take off like that. Before Big and Kim got on it…He don’t care. So, it is what it is,” he said.
